About this product
- DescriptionJerusalem is a sweeping, epic work that follows a single family-three generations and fifteen very different people - as they are swept up in chaos, war, and nation-making from 1940-1948. Faith, family, and politics are the heady mix that fuel this ambitious, cinematic graphic vel. With Jerusalem, author-filmmaker Boaz Yakin turns his finely-honed storytelling skills to a topic near to his heart: Yakin's family lived in Palestine during this period and were caught up in the turmoil of war just as his characters are. This is a personal work, but it is t a book with a political axe to grind. Rather, it seeks to tell the stories of a huge cast of memorable characters as they wrestle with a time when thing was clear and path was smooth.
