Israel: my home, my friend, my chaperone, my guide, my heart.Israel: my exile, my otherness, my boundary, myopia, my shadow.Spectrum for an Untouchable is an experimental book that aspires to explain Israel, and what it means to be Israeli, from an autobiographical standpoint. The writing draws upon the color spectrum, interweaving it with memories, shapes, unseeable images, and gaps of vision in order to describe and question a place. Israel is written of as a person. It is a break-up that can never be complete, and a love that can never be fulfilled. It is a dream space that intertwines fear and pain with recognition and hope."

Reviews

"She lets all the forbidden thoughts and emotions, suppressed for a lifetime, spill onto the page. Her vulnerability is her strength as she deconstructs the memories, history, and narrative she inherited but never believed. And she challenges--at times aggressively--her fellow Israelis, 'all of you, ' to ask with her: 'What if the dream is just an idea of a place that doesn't exist?'" --Shelby Hartman, huffingtonpost.com
