About The Book
From one of Israel’s leading investigative journalists, piercingly honest portraits of Israeli men and women who, in the face of brutal and desperate forces, try-often without success-to hold onto their past, their identity, their sanity, and their hope.
The son of a Holocaust survivor descends into paranoia, “swept away like a demon-ravaged refugee ship”; a Bedouin boy kills his father with a stone; a Russian immigrant crashes his car-his sole, proud possession-and vanishes into the desert; a veteran is left with agonizing memories of his fallen comrades in the Yom Kippur War; a senior army officer who grew up believing himself to be an orphan discovers his mother living among Arabs in Jordan.
These are just a few of the people whose stories make up this stunning book. Brilliantly, Igal Sarna lets their unexpected and harrowing tales speak for themselves, carefully weaving individual voices into a narrative of shattering power. Like no other book before it, The Man Who Fell into a Puddle reveals the profound human suffering at the heart of the process of creating the Israeli nation.
