Winner, Prix du Meilleur Livre Étranger

An aging Israeli film director has been invited to the pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela for a retrospective of his work. When Yair Moses and Ruth, his leading actress and longtime muse, settle into their hotel room, a painting over their bed triggers a distant memory in Moses from one of his early films: a scene that caused a rift with his brilliant but difficult screenwriter—who, as it happens, was once Ruth’s lover. Upon their return to Israel, Moses decides to travel to the south to look for his elusive former partner and propose a new collaboration. But the screenwriter demands a price for it that will have strange and lasting consequences.

A searching and original novel by one of the world’s most esteemed writers, The Retrospective is a meditation on mortality and intimacy, on the limits of memory and the struggle of artistic creation.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Retrospective

"A pure pleasure . . . Yehoshua’s best book in years." — Maariv

"Yehoshua, as usual, succeeds in conveying surprising ideas in a fascinating and convincing manner, and in a beautiful language." — Ha’ir

Praise for Friendly Fire

"Few novelists handle such complex themes with Yehoshua's wit and creativity, and in these and many other respects, this poignant novel, with its duet-like chapters, succeeds brilliantly in transcending the Israeli context to examine the human condition." — Miami Herald
Praise for A Woman in Jerusalem

“A masterpiece, a compact, strange work of Chekhovian grace, grief, wit and compassion.” — Washington Post Book World
