A collection of intense, lyrical, and emotionally complex short stories by one of Israel's best-selling authors, Apples from the Desert earned brilliant reviews upon its first U.S. publication, in hardcover, in 1998.
"Though resonant with deep philosophical and social themes, this book teems not with images or ideologies, but with rich, exciting, believable stories.... (These) engrossing and skillful tales take you through the lives of real people, to the heart of their emotional and moral being", declared the Washington Post Book World.
Liebrecht's short fiction, available in paperback for the first time, explores the everyday tragedies emanating from strained relations between Arabs and Jews, women and men, older and younger generations in present-day Israel. Throughout the collection, Liebrecht reveals the impact of larger social and political conflicts within the private world of the home with a precision and a subtle ferocity reminiscent of the work of Nadine Gordimer.
