A leading Israeli investigative journalist shares a series of candid, intimate portraits of men and women who, trapped in the middle of harrowing events, brutal conditions, violence, and terror, struggle--often unsuccessfully--to preserve their past, their identity, their sanity, and their hope. 20,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
From one of Israel's leading investigative journalists, 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 book. Igal Sarna lets their tales speak for themselves, weaving individual voices into a narrative of power. The Man Who Fell into a Puddle reveals the profound human suffering at the heart of the process of creating the Israeli nation.
