Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published in Hebrew as Shetayim dubim: Tel Aviv :  ĽAm  Ľoved, 2013.
Summary, etc.: In the year 1930, three farmers committed suicide here . . . but contrary to the chronicles of our committee and the conclusions of the British policeman, the people of the moshava knew that only two of the suicides had actually taken their own lives, whereas the third suicide had been murdered." This is the contention of Ruta Tavori, a high school teacher and independent thinker in this small farming community, writing seventy years later about that murder and about two charismatic men she loves and is trying to forgive--her grandfather and her husband--and her son, whom she mourns and misses.
Subject: Suicide > Fiction.
