About this product
- DescriptionSOPHISTICATED AND SUSPENSEFUL . . . TAUTLY WRITTEN . . . Wilentz kws the world she writes about very well, and her descriptions have a solid specificity that lends authority to her fiction. The New York Times Book Review At a closed Israeli checkpoint, Marina, a Palestinian mother, clutches her ailing boy, desperate for access to Jerusalem and its doctors. When a young Israeli soldier waits too long before deciding to disobey orders, a martyr is born. Thus begins a graceful, painful, illuminating vel of the Middle East. . . . [Wilentz s] prose tugs at the reader. . . . The characters are magnetic. . . . [This] is a very human tale of regrets, revenge, and the elusive nature of absolution. Entertainment Weekly SO PRECISE, SO STARTLING, SO UNFORGETTABLE. . . . These characters are all pawns of history and politics, but Wilentz makes them live. Los Angeles Times MAGNIFICENT . . . Wilentz writes with a prose style reminiscent of The New Yorker s highest ambitions: crystalline, pure, faultlessly communicative. . . . Like the best documentaries, Martyrs Crossing allows us unprecedented access to a little-understood and often misrepresented part of the world. Chicago Tribune A BRILLIANTLY RESEARCHED MEDIDATION ON THE CRISIS IN THE MIDDLE EAST . . . Martyr s Crossing matches Damascus Gate in the quality of research and the mass of intriguing characters and yet it remains a lean thriller. The New York Observer
