Tales of the Ten Lost Tribes
Toby Press, 2008 - 156 עמודים
Taking its imagery from the legend of the ten tribes of Israel exiled by the Assyrians and lost to the pages of history beyond the River Sambatyon, Tales of the Ten Lost Tribes follows the life-journey of a wandering narrator who encounters a series of displaced persons: the uncle whose endless travels seem romantic but are in fact a camouflage for a life of failure and malaise; the professor whose mastery of many languages can never assuage the anguish of his lost mother tongue; the girl student who may literally be invisible; the young man who spends his night hours obsessively writing and rewriting the slim volume he can never finish. With each encounter the narrator inevitably moves on, dreaming of home, unable to resist the lure of the world's labyrinth.

The short stories were interesting, but I would have preferred more dialogue and less description. I would like to know how each one is related to the tribe to which it is assigned, but I'm not motivated enough to do any research. קרא סקירה מלאה
