it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, biography, in-russian, kindle


I have never been in Israel and I have never been an immigrant. I have never lived under the constant danger of being killed in the midst of a long-run conflict. Then why every word in this book felt so familiar, so close to my heart? Some characters more, some less: but I could identify with the feelings, and see them in my heart. These people I never met -- and never really met anybody who could remind me of them -- I felt as if they were diverse parts of me, broken off by life, by immigration, by the need to survive, by the constant search of belonging, as if it all happened to me and I simply forgot the details... From the country I am born in to wherever I go -- I am a constant native foreigner on this planet.

A unique book about life, people, survival, communication, traditions, expectations, quirky national features and fate as it is.
