Magic on Lake Kinneret

Yoram Kaniuk
One morning, a young girl gets out of bed and sets off on a journey of murderous violence and emotionless relief. Motivated by a strange blend of apathy, curiosity and repulsion, she is accompanied only by her beloved Potonovsky, an embryo preserved in a jar of formalin, neither dead nor alive. And as she acts out her uncontrollable lust for the dark side of existence, this thoughtful yet cold-blooded young woman examines life from the "mundane side of things," as she calls it.
With somber and daring narrative power, Yoram Kaniuk breathes life into his distraught young character. Newly republished in 2008, this breathtaking and shocking novella was first published in 1994 under a pen name.

Kaniuk certainly knows how to write!

Kaniuk deviously celebrates life and everything else through the slipping mind of a brilliant, desperate 18-year-old.
