A Man and a Woman and a Man

A Man and a Woman and a Man Savyon Liebrecht

From one of Israel's most acclaimed authors, here is a powerful novel of intertwined passion and mourning. In the unlikely setting of a Tel Aviv nursing home, Hanutal, wife and mother, falls in love "in a blinding storm of emotion." While visiting her mother, a Holocaust survivor with Alzheimer's, she meets a man tenderly caring for his father in the room across the hall. After an exchange of only a few words, she cannot forget him. As her mother begins to reveal disturbing secrets from the war and painful memories are awakened, Hamutal grows more and more obsessed, until finally she believes that only this man can bring her joy in the midst of such sadness. 

Praise for the Book:
