"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
