Description

The award-winning "work of a great novelist...a literary master plan for Israel's multiple generations."( David Shapiro)

Winner of the Akum Prize for Best Literary Achievement of the Year, Snapshots introduces Ilana Tsuriel--a brilliant Israeli intellectual and architect, wife of a prominent Holocaust scholar, and daughter of a legendary founding Zionist. When she dies in a car accident, it's up to her estranged husband, Alain, to piece together the puzzle of the woman he thought he knew from the documents she left behind. Snapshots is a wrenching portrait of a woman grappling with her loyalties, and with every element of her ever-shifting identities from New York to Paris to Jerusalem.
