Local Paper

Shulamit Lapid
Lizzy Badihi is an industrious freelance journalist working for a local paper in Beersheba who will take on any assignment at any time. Single and unattractive, she puts on her plastic earrings and sets out to tackle the world. At a party, Lizzy becomes embroiled in a murder and despite her lack of police training, succeeds in unravelling the crime. While Lizzy trots from one press conference to another the social picture unfolds, warts and all. Amid the general squalor, Lizzy alone stands out as a sympathetic creature who, for all her humble background and common appearance, possesses natural integrity.

Nothing is stereotypical in this novel...no inspectors in raincoats, no policemen stalking in cars, only a 30-year-old journalist with huge flat feet, big breasts and a virgin to boot.
