Sunday, 29 February 2004

In this session, the celebrated Israeli writer A B Yehoshua launched his latest novel, The Liberated Bride. At one level a bittersweet comedy of domestic manners set in late 1990s Israel, the novel is also a brilliant exploration of a politically divided society in which decent people, both Jews and Arabs, try to live alongside each other. In conversation with Linda Grant, and in front of an audience packed to capacity, Yehoshua considered how the simple aspirations of ordinary people illuminate the larger issues of life.
