Bestselling 2009 Sapir Prize winner, Alon Hilu shed light on the present through his representation of the past.  He told the partly true story of the difficult friendship between asickly, but brilliant, Muslim boy and a dynamic Jewish settler, in the shifting world of nineteenth-century Palestine. It is a gothic tale of love, honour and betrayal.
