Description

Ashes: and other stories.

Ashes: and other stories. A collection of 13 short stories set in an Israel of many moods shaped by its heritage and inhabitants, and written by a respected historian, whose fictional debut this is. In situations of humour and poignancy we are presented with an anatomy of Israeli society, a species of social tragi-comedy.

The short stories in Naomi Shepherd's collection Ashes are a delight. Naomi Shepherd is a prize-winning historian and biographer; here she turns her hand to fiction, revealing a razor-sharp eye, a finely attuned ear, and a keen sense of cultural dissonance. In them we encounter themes of adultery, love, jealousy, loss, guilt, encroaching age, et cetera, set in an Israel of many modes, and Israel shaped by its heritage, its history, and, above all, its inhabitants, Jew and Arab, all gathered together not so much in a melting pot as in a stew concocted of intractable, discordant elements. We are presented, in short, with an anatomy of Israeli society, a species of social tragic-comedy.
