The successor to Israel Short Stories and Tel Aviv Short Stories, the new anthology is a salute/tribute to Israel's 65th anniversary. Though the settings and themes are quintessentially Israeli, the narrative voice is that of the "insider/outsider" - the Anglo (English-speaking) resident. The more than 45 authors are expatriates from the ., USA, Canada, South Africa, India, etc. Many of the stories reflect Israel's complicated reality. One story explores how love is not enough to breach the political void between an Israeli soldier and her American boyfriend.

Tel Aviv Short Stories. Some stories deal with universal situations from an Israeli perspective, like the differences between an immigrant generation and its native-born children. Shelly Goldman and Joanna Yehiel, ed. Ang-Lit Press, 2009. And still others have timeless themes that could play out anywhere, like dating, infidelity, jealousy, revenge, and murder. Unfortunately, too many of the stories ignore the injunction to show, don’t tell. They devote pages to exposition, or else they seat two friends in a café to relate narrative through dialogue.

Listen to books in audio format. William Goldman well. a lot less than the man of her dreams?

Listen to books in audio format. a lot less than the man of her dreams? As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dad's recitation, and only the "good parts" reached his ears. Now Goldman does Dad one better.

America" is a science fiction short story by American writer Orson Scott Card, originally published in the January 1987 issue of Asimov's Science Fiction magazine. It was reprinted in Card's short story collection The Folk of the Fringe. This story begins before the war that destroys America. In it, a teenage boy named Sam Monson travels to Brazil with his father. While there, he begins dreaming about a woman who lives in a nearby Indian village named Anamari.

The tales and stories in this collection were casually written at different periods and under different influences. As a rule, it may be said that Mary Shelley is best when most ideal, and excels in proportion to the exaltation of the sentiment embodied in her tale. Virtue, patriotism, disinterested affection, are very real things to her; and her heroes and heroines, if generally above the ordinary plane of humanity, never transgress the limits of humanity itself.

English tea and scones prove to be a hard sell in Jerusalem; a trip to the beach changes the way an American teen feels about herself, living in Israel and Russian whores; a dowry-less Orthodox girl commits identity theft to meet her match; a slick, obnoxious lawyer is outmaneuvered by his ex-partner’s wife; a kibbutz couple miss their friend when he becomes a she; learning German is no panacea for loneliness a middle-aged bachelor discovers; a father-ofthe- bride outgrows sibling rivalry; two women, one from Israel, the other from Gaza, confront a common enemy – cancer. These are just some of the themes in this exciting short fiction anthology featuring 70 stories written in English and set in Israel. Quirky, poignant humorous or heartbreaking, the stories, written by over 50 authors, mostly native English-speaking Israel residents and expatriates from the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, India, etc, provide a kaleidoscope of contemporary Israeli society – not the whole story but the Anglo narrative in this dynamic, multi-cultural State now in its sixth decade.

I think this is a real anthropological gem. This collection of stories will take you on a literary tour through the diverse aspects of the culture of Israel. The short biographies of the authors are a special treat.

Stories are very linear; tbey do not really address complexity of situation. The writing style is also average, not well - written.

amusing stories, definitely some are more memorable than others. Sadly the good ones are too short and lag the detail I enjoy from full length novels, but perhaps this style is just not my cup of tea.
