Summary In his native Israel, Gil Hovav is beloved as a special national cultural treasure. Now, finally, with this deft translation of his utterly charming story collection that comes laced with 21 mouthwatering recipes, English-speaking readers will be able to appreciate why. Hovav is a masterful storyteller, a born raconteur. An unforgettable gallery of colorful uncles, aunts, and other family member—with food woven through as a lemotif--makes these autobiographical accounts of growing up in Jerusalem in the 60s and 70s read like short stories in the great tradition of Sholem Aleichem: tales told with great wisdom, tenderness, insight, and wit as tart as a bowl of Yemenite pickles. And who wouldn’t salivate over Hovav’s family recipes for sweet sour chorba tomato soup or his Aunt Levana’s eggplant and feta bourekas? Dig in, dear readers, pleasure is served.
