This volume is an anthology of Hebrew short stories. The growth and development of Hebrew fiction is as fascinating as the stories in this collection. While It includes established writers, it also marks younger writers less well-known but no less fascinating, grappling with complex contemporary issues.

Rootless and hounded by an exilic past spanning over two millennia, Hebrew language thrived in host cultures till the establishment of the state of Israel and its extraordinary revival as spoken language by the turn of the century. Restlessness to peace, the transition has only been tragic - humiliation, persecution, holocaust, war and huge political changes.

Reflecting and embodying this dynamics of change, as this collection amply demonstrates, is the Hebrew fiction which despite being so much younger has yet been able to capture the images in a diversity of styles, structures and narrative excitements.
