Once a student of classical singing, Miss Fanny has decided she lacks the talent to succeed. She sentences herself to silence. She has a humdrum job and lives with her Aunt Leda in Tel Aviv. When an old suitor invites her to a nightclub in Jaffa, she goes, and her life begins again.

A delicate and minutely traced portrait of a reluctant night-club singer... Extraordinary. Independent on Sunday This initially gentle, meandering story set in Israel, of a sea-change in the life of Miss Fanny, a sweet, self-contained spinster who once, in her native Berlin, had ambitions to be a singer, gains pace when she goes to a seedy nightclub with a man she once slept with, unsuccessfully... From there, the story becomes an understated revelation, as the formerly lonely Miss Fanny comes into her own as a cabaret singer, and gains a lover, and a whole new life. Charming, positive and rather lovely. "Big Issue" "From the Trade Paperback edition.""About the Author:
Dorit Peleg won the Tel Aviv Foundation Grant and the Haim Kugel Prize for "Miss Fanny s Voice." She is the author of another novel, "Una," and a collection of stories."
