To Jerusalem and Back (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin)

Saul Bellow

Nobel laureate Saul Bellow’s revealing interviews and meditations, steeped in historical past and literature, at the designated spirit and demanding situations of Israel

A strong, stimulating testomony, To Jerusalem and Back is a rigorous try to come to grips with Israel’s heritage and destiny. Immersing himself within the panorama and tradition of this “small country in perpetual crisis,” Bellow files the critiques, passions, and desires of Israelis of various viewpoints—Yitzak Rabin, Amos oz., the editor of the biggest Arab-language newspaper in Israel, a kibbutznik escaped from the Warsaw Ghetto—and provides his personal reflections on being Jewish within the 20th century. Saul Bellow’s trip isn't really in basic terms an exploration of a really appealing and extremely urban; it's a significant literary paintings, and an urgently very important one.
