Overview

“Anyone who has had experience of the sad and subtle ways in which human beings torment one another under license of family ties will appreciate the merits of A.B. Yehoshua’s A Late Divorce.” —London Review of Books

A powerful story about a family—and a country —in crisis.

The father of three grown children comes back to Israel to get a divorce from his wife of many years; another woman, newly pregnant, awaits him in America. Narrated in turn by each family member—husband and wife, sons and daughter, young grandson—the drama builds to a crescendo at the traditional family gathering on Passover Eve.

“Each character here is brilliantly realized . . . Thank goodness for a novel that is ambitious and humane and that is about things that really matter”—New Statesman

"A master storyteller whose tales reveal the inner life of a vital, conflicted nation.” — Wall Street Journal
