A collection of conversations, held over a period of five years, between Chertok (an American-born writer who has lived in Israel since 1977) and eighteen leading Israeli authors. They talk about literature, contemporary Zionism, the lure of Diaspora, women in Israel, the Palestinians, and Judaism's official, cultural, and religious faces. A fine composite portrait of contemporary Israel and an illuminating view of the writers' personal styles and beliefs.
