NY Times review of “A Perfect Peace“
At ten minutes after two in the morning, Yonatan woke from a troubled sleep. A bloody, faceless corpse had been brought into the tractor shed on an army stretcher. It’s your father, buddy, the corps commander said, tapping Yonatan on the shoulder. He’s been hacked to death with a dagger by two-legged beasts. But my father is a sick old man, protested Yonatan, trying to talk or bargain his way out of the truth. Your father was butchered with biblical cruelty, barked the corps commander. Instead of just standing there answering back, why don’t you get off your ass and try to patch him together.
…….for the rest, come to Chevra this Shabbat!
