Bachelors and Widows

In this book the protagonists, all bachelors and widows, drift along in their own concentric circles of loneliness. Each one leads his or her life through a series of personal ceremonies while dreaming of a different life—until the moment their routine is shattered, and new, strange and thrilling possibilities burst into their lives. The tragi-comic carnival atmosphere of the four novellas are characteristic of Pinkus’s prose—a style that has brought him unique status in Hebrew literature as one of the best-loved and best-selling writers of his generation.

Pinkus writes like a magician, with a wonderful eye for the nuances of human behavior.... Through his eyes, even the pettiest and ugliest suddenly seem amusing, poignant and even

lovable. Ha’aretz
