Turtle Soup for Breakfast

Reuven Miran
The 24 short stories in this collection depict ordinary life in Israel. Whether describing military life, Arab-Jewish relations or border settlements, Miran writes without affectation or false notes. In the title story a piano teacher escapes World War II with her concert grand piano. One morning her stepson shows up with a live turtle, which he cooks for her. Miran exhibits an acute understanding of physical and dramatic details, as well as open acceptance of human frailty.


This book reveals a magic that is not easily pinpointed....Miran knows how to tell a story.
