House of Windows: Portraits from a Jerusalem Neighborhood by Adina Hoffman

Living in Israel for the past eight years, Adina Hoffman observed the nuances of life in a divided city. By focusing on the day-to-day rhythms of her close-knit neighborhood -- a sort of urban village located on the seam between the western (Jewish) and eastern (Arab) sides of Jerusalem -- Hoffman offers a rich, precise, and refreshingly honest portrait of a place that is often reduced to generalization and cliche. The narrative consists of intimate portraits: a Moroccan-Jewish grocer, an aging civil servant, a Palestinian gardener, a nosy mother of ten, and others. And its gaze and ambition gradually widen to take in larger questions of identity and exile.
