Moriel Rothman-Zecher: Sadness is a White Bird

Moriel Rothman-Zecher is a MacDowell Fellow and a rising literary star. In his lyrical and searing debut novel, Sadness is a White Bird, a young man is preparing to serve in the Israeli army while also trying to reconcile his close relationship to two Palestinian siblings with his deeply ingrained loyalties to family and country. Called "Nuanced, sharp, and beautifully written" by Michael Chabon, the novel--both a love store and an examination of a never-ending conflict that has shaped generations--is powerful and timely.
