"In February 2000, Richard Zimler went to Australia for the Perth Writers' Festival. The day he arrived, he met a talented dancer who told him how much his novel The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon had meant to her. The tragic step she would take the next day would change Zimler's life for ever, and launch him into an intense, three-year investigation of her past." "He discovers a childhood lived in the shade of Mount Carmel in the 1950s, a time of tolerance between neighboring Arabs and Jews in the old districts of Haifa. As this peace becomes fragile, two girls - one Palestinian, one Israeli - nevertheless forge a lifelong bond. Zimler's quest uncovers the story of this friendship, though it leads him through a web of illusion, cruelty and deceit and finally to September 11, 2001, when the tragedy he witnessed in Perth is set in the starkest of political contexts."--BOOK JACKET.
