Apples from the Desert: Selected Stories by Savyon Liebrecht, Grace Paley (Foreword by), Grace Paley (Foreword by), Lily Rattok (Introduction), Lily Rattok (Introduction).
┬ ┬ ┬ Savyon Liebrecht's intense, lyrical, and emotionally complex stories have made her a best-selling writer in her native Israel. Her short fiction explores the everyday tragedies that emanate from strained relationships between Arabs and Jews, women and men, older and younger generations in present-day Israel. According to the Washington Post Book World, her "engrossing and skillful tales take you through the lives of real people, to the heart of their emotional and moral being." Liebrecht reveals the impact of larger social and political conflicts within the private world of the home with a precision and a subtle ferocity reminiscent of the work of Nadine Gordimer.
