9780892553563: The Women My Father Knew: A Novel (Karen and Michael Braziller Books)

A literary mystery, set in New York City and bohemian Tel Aviv, by one of Israel’s most admired popular authors.

After his successful first novel, Meir suffers writer’s block. Then his father, poet and charmer of women, who supposedly died decades earlier, contacts him and they arrange to meet. Fragmented, troubling memories of a forgotten childhood time spent alone with his father rise to Meir’s consciousness. Swirling floodwater, a man hiding from the Gestapo, a woman flirting, a bloodstained sheet. What happened during that time, and why did his father disappear? While solving these riddles of the past, Meir inhabits the borderland between memory and artistic creation. There he finds emotions so deeply tangled in his being that they can only be expressed through art. He begins to write again―a story of a loving son who witnessed a seduction and perhaps also a murder. 0
