"Ardent, salty, whimsical, steamy, absurd . . . A wallop to the reader."
"Since I was little, I have thrilled at reading food-related passages in novels. But the food scenes in Some Day by Israeli novelist Shemi Zarhin are on another level. In one passage, Zarhin describes a dish so vividly I felt compelled to re-create it in my own kitchen ... My mouth watered."
--Leah Koenig in Modern Jewish Cooking
--Miami Sun Sentinel
"Zarhin has added his name to the luminaries of Israeli literature."
--The Arts Fuse
"This thrilling, fresh, and surprising novel ought to draw the eyes of the literati back to Israel."
"Masterful . . . haunting . . . sublime . . . Zarhin's characters are so real they fairly jump off the page."
--The Jerusalem Post
A surreal story of twisted fates, with food in Israel saturating every page. Compelling and haunting, there is an addictive bitterness to Shemi Zarhin's writing."
--Joan Nathan, author of The Foods of Israel Today and Jewish Cooking in America
A fantastical-realist universe in which ... cuisine, which greases the wheels of the plot and connects people, is just as key a protagonist as the other characters in the book."
"Beautiful ... reading the book feels like going back in time."
--Yael Stone, actor in Orange is the New Black
