My Michael, by the renowned Israeli author Amos Oz
Set in 1950s Jerusalem, My Michaelis the story of a remote and intense woman named Hannah Gonen and her marriage to a decent but unremarkable man named Michael. As the years pass and Hannah’s tempestuous fantasy life encroaches upon reality, she feels increasingly estranged from him and the marriage gradually disintegrates. Gorgeously written, profoundly moving, this extraordinary work is a haunting love story and a reflective portrait of a place.
