About the Author
A. B. Yehoshua (1936-2022) was born in Jerusalem to a Sephardi family. Drawing comparisons to William Faulkner and described by Saul Bellow as "one of Israel's world-class writers," Yehoshua, an ardent humanist and titan of storytelling, distinguished himself from contemporaries with his diverse exploration of Israeli identity. His work, which has been translated into twenty-eight languages, includes two National Jewish Book Award winners (Five Seasons and Mr. Mani) and has received countless honors worldwide, including the International Booker Prize shortlist and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize (Woman in Jerusalem).
STUART SCHOFFMAN, a journalist and translator, is a fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem and editor of Havruta: A Journal of Jewish Conversation.

"A wise, masterfully understated work by one of Israel's towering literary figures." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"An old-fashioned book, free of cynicism, encroaching technology and intricate plotting, but imbued with a heartfelt and optimistic view of humanity -- in other words, a book filled with feeling and moral values." -- New York Times Book Review

"One of Israel's world-class writers." -- Saul Bellow

"[Yehoshua is] an Israeli Faulkner." -- Harold Bloom, The New York Times

"The Only Daughter is an act of gentle love, full of generosity." -- Tuttolibri

"We all need them, brothers and sisters and writers who speak to us as if they were our older brothers (and sisters). A. B.Yehoshua is." -- La Repubblica

"Yehoshua knows how to probe the human soul through characters who peek out from the pages at us all, as if to say, 'Hey, watch out it's about you, too.'" -- Doppiozero
