All the Rivers
|Author:||Dorit Rabinyan; Jessica Cohen (Translator)|
A haunting love story between a young Israeli translator and a Palestinian painter
I am impressed ... Even the (asymmetrical) tragedy of the two peoples does not overwhelm this precise and elegant love story, drawn with the finest of lines. There are many astonishing things about this book. -- Amos Oz Rabinyan is a generous writer who puts her characters first... Rabinyan's writing reflects the honesty and modesty of a true artisan. She is meticulous, to be sure, but at the same time she doesn't appear to be straining, and this is what sets someone like her apart from those who merely practice the craft of writing. -- Dorit Shilo Ha'aretz
