An interesting look at the lives of contemporary Israeli Arabs, caught in a difficult limbo between Jewish Israelis and Palestinians. Kashua focuses on two educated men who take very different approaches to the problem of their Arab identity. While Kashua tries to inject some humor into the proceedings I found the hypocrisy of one of the main characters really frustrating and hard to deal with, even as I realized that was the point of his character. Overall, recommended if you are interested in Israeli society and the notion of the fluidity of ethnic and familial identity in general.
