All the Rivers by Dorit Rabinyan, Jessica Cohen (Translator)

A controversial, award-winning story about the passionate but untenable affair between an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man, from one of Israels most acclaimed novelists

Bernstein Prize winner Rabinyans modern take on forbidden love between young dreamers on opposite sides of a bitter cultural conflict enthralls and delights. Liat, an Israeli Fulbright scholar studying in New York City, has a chance meeting one afternoon with the affable Hilmi, a Palestinian painter on an artists visa that explodes into an intense love affair. Banned by the Israel Ministry of Education as too controversial for the high school curriculum, the novel was defended by literary icons Amos Oz, David Grossman, and A.B. Yehoshua, among others. It has become the focal point of a fierce debate about freedom of speech in Israel and the persistent fear of Jews marrying Arabs.
