Israeli novelist Govrin juxtaposes one women’s difficult search for personal and professional fulfillment against modern Israel’s quagmire of political and social issues. lana Tsuriel’s accidental death at the book’s opening quashes her vision for a revolutionary architecture project in Jerusalem. The project borrows concepts about land and property ownership from biblical texts and is intended to promote peace in a city perpetually in turmoil. Left behind are her journal notes, photographs and sketches. As the title suggests, Ilana’s work and private life unfold, often in dialogue with her deceased Zionist father, in a patchwork of musings justifying her personal and professional choices. AVAILABLE ON KINDLE AND NOOK.
