Back Yard

Uri Tzaig
Uri Tzaig's first book, Back Yard, is a collection of six stories. In "Tel Aviv, Summer 1993," Tzaig uses the main character's intense dialogs with himself to open a window on his inner world: a Jewish man gripped by sexual desire for a Palestinian worker and terrific curiosity about him.
"Kiryat Gat, Summer 1991 - Berlin, Winter 1993" tells of a dusty town in the south of Israel, where a rape is committed in the middle of the day.

Tzaig's writing is meant as a critique of ordinary fiction, which is still based on what the postmodernists call - with an implied sneer - romantic individualism.
