a post-modern israeli masterpiece,that succeeds on being both pretentious and well- written with a strive for the authentic language ,at the same time.
taking elements mainly from french and american (both south and north)literature,Shimoni wrote 3 stories,distinguished in their style and length,each of them is named after differant part of a one room (a metaphor for human's life).
the gap between the simple,down to earth existence of the characters,and the metaphysical,uncomprehensible nature of the world is greatly described and the result is a rare deep and movinf experiance of reading. ( )
