Meir Shalev, Barbara Harshav (Translation). As I read THE LOVES OF JUDITH I began to feel that the author must have written children's books because of his whimsical didacticism and his love of the tiny beauties of nature. Turns out he did. His desire for miracles outstrips his feeling for tragedy.

A woman with three loves and a son with three fathers: a universal story of passion and personal destiny by the award-winning author of A Pigeon and a Boy. When the mysterious Judith arrives in a small agricultural village in Palestine in the 1930s, she attracts attention of three men: Moshe, a widowed farmer; Globerman, a wealthy cattle dealer; and Jacob, who loses his wife-the most beautiful woman in the village-because of his obsession with Judith, who insists on living in a cowshed rather than settling down with any.

Four Meals Meir Shalev, translated by Barbara Harshav Canongate £10 .

Life wrecks the human frame, the past oppresses, memory drapes a patchy shawl over the shoulders, chaffing at the skin. Shalev's novel has much in common with the current trend for literary genealogy championed by diverse camps.

A woman with three loves and a son with three fathers: a universal story of passion and personal destiny by the award-winning author of A Pigeon and a Boy. When the mysterious Judith arrives in a small agricultural village in Palestine in the 1930s, she attracts attention of three men: Moshe, a widowed farmer; Globerman, a wealthy cattle dealer; and Jacob, who loses his wife—the most beautiful woman in the village—because of his obsession with Judith, who insists on living in a cowshed rather than settling down with any of her admirers. When she gives birth to Zayde, all three suitors consider him their son, and Zayde, who tragically loses Judith, imbibes their triple wisdom and their distinct versions of his origins. As Zayde pieces together the beguiling story of the singular woman who was his mother, Meir Shalev weaves a magical novel of the joys and secrets of village life, of an unconventional family, and the unexpected fruits of love.

Great book

My favorite Israeli written. Magical realism, in a wonderful story.
sergant
This is a fable with lots of things to think about. Best of all the writing is delicious!

It's a very difficult book and quite dense. There are many gems inside. You must take your time...can't skim this one. I read it for my Book Club and talking about it helped immensely. It is a very visual book full of magical realism. Sometimes you have to suspend your practical side to enjoy it. It is like one big Chagall painting!

Well written. Complex. A very unusual love story. I read it twice, back to back, as the characters, plot, and events were described in explicit and unique detail.
Prince Persie
A marvelous Israeli writer--well worth reading

I chose this rating because I love the way he uses the language. I am intrigued by the the way he describes the people and the feelings and thoughts that drive them.
People who enjoy reading, taking in all the details, respecting the characters, feeling the place, would enjoy this book.
A fantastic novel rich in imagination describing the characters.
I liked the way the autor resumes in few words the main events that take place during the novel.
