In Chochana Boukhobza’s moving novel, The Third Day, two cellists travel to Jerusalem for a concert. For Elisheva, this is above all an appointment with her past and the nightmares of the camps; for Rachel, her gifted pupil, the return home forces her to face the difficult choices she has made.

Boukhobza spoke about her gripping thriller set in the late 1980s, in a rich multicultural Israel fraught with tension.
