Description

Informationen zum Autor Dror Burstein was born in 1970 in Netanya, Israel, and lives in Tel Aviv. He teaches at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem as well as at Tel Aviv University, edits programs for Israel Radio's music station, and writes literary and art reviews. He has been awarded the Bernstein Prize (2005) and the Prime Minister's Prize (2006). Klappentext Emil, the unwanted child of two young parents, is adopted by Yoel and Leah, a childless couple. Yet, as the years pass, it becomes clear that Emil doesn't bear much resemblance to the parents who've loved and raised him. Is his name the only thing his real parents have left him? Kin traces the movements of Emil and his four parents as they walk through the same city, nearby but apart, searching for each other in the faces of passersby; until Yoel, now old, becomes determined to do the impossible: return his grown son--a lonely man approaching middle age--to his birth parents. In prose that is both minimal and subtly off kilter, acclaimed Israeli novelist Dror Burstein introduces us to an Israel that is as peculiar, and poignant, as Donald Barthelme's America: ranging from an apocalyptic future to the petty annoyances of daily life, from shifting continents to tiny heartbreaks. Zusammenfassung In prose both minimal and subtly off kilter, acclaimed novelist Dror Burstein introduces us--through the shifting relationships between an adopted child and his two sets of parents--to an Israel that is as peculiar, and poignant, as Donald Barthelme's America: ranging from an apocalyptic future to the petty annoyances of daily life, from sliding continents to tiny heartbreaks.
