When “Not Me” first appeared in Israel, it caused a furious uproar. Now Shalev is one of the outstanding storytellers of our time whose voice carries political weight. For the first time, her book is now available in German (translation: Anne Birkenhauer).
A young woman serves up one story after another. Who knows what really happened to the narrator? But one thing is clear: she left her husband and daughter for her lover and is now falling apart. “Zeruya Shalev’s first novel ‘Not Me’ is one of the boldest works in postmodern Israeli literature.” (Avner Holtzman)
