Reviews

Shortlisted for the 2012 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award

Praise for Limassol

"Limassol grips the reader, stirs something in him and slaps him in the face. Sarid truly shines...The novel's achievement is its triple function: as a detective, a spy novel, and most notably as a briliant political critique."
--Haaretz

"In Limassol, Sarid performs open-heart surgery on Israeli society; without using anesthetic."
--Achbar Ha'Ir

"Limassol is the Israeli version of Dostoevksy's Notes from the Underground, a parable on the ailemnts of Israeli society as they manifest in the Israeli idea of security, in the culture, in the drug and crime industries, and in the Palestinian conflict."
--Zman Yerushalayim
