Funeral at NoonBook - 1996
A minor masterpiece, one of the best novels out of Israel in recent memory" (Kirkus Reviews). In a small Israeli village in the 1950s, a young housewife, childless and bored, forms a curious bond with her neighbor's ten-year-old son and the two take long walks to an abandoned Arab village where an encounter with a lone soldier sets in motion a series of events that lead to tragedy. "This powerful novel succeeds in creating an eerie, tension-filled atmosphere" (New York Times).
