THE ONE FACING US.
Edition: First US printing.
New York: Henry Holt, (1998.) dj. Hardcover first edition - Young Israeli author's first novel to appear in English, translated by Marsha Weinstein. "Esther - seventeen years old, wild and rebellious - is sent to live with her hardheaded uncle Sicourelle, who is charged with straightening her out. But Esther resists his plans - which include marriage to a cousin - and in the privileged indolence of postcolonial Africa she looks to the past instead. With sepia portraits and scraps of letters, Esther pieces together the history of her family, a once-grand Egyptian Jewish clan, and its dispersal from Cairo in the 1950's to Israel, Africa, and New York. " Illustrated with photographs at the head of each chapter. 296 pp. ISBN: 0-805048804.
