Product description


Holy Lands is a subtle equation of originality and emotion. An exchange of letters and emails--funny, biting, touching--between four members of the same family . . . The result: as many astonishing stories--did you know, for example, that in Israel people use pigs to pursue terrorists?--as there are moments of emotion, doubt, and love. Between exchanges of acerbic humor, Amanda Sthers reveals, with rhythm and reserve, each and everyone's flaws. (Direct Soir)

Drip[s] with a charming Jewish humor . . . A thoughtful and hilarious novel. (L'Avenir)

A small golden nugget that shouldn't fail to rise the ranks quickly. And for good reason. The author . . . has written a truly funny book: a series of hilarious correspondences undertaken by very colorful characters . . . While everyone in this small world exchanges letters and emails that are ironic, biting, conniving, and touching, Amanda Sthers uses the opportunity to reveal each person's secrets and to broach, always with a light touch, the religious as well as the familial . . . this rhythmic and lucid novel is made to devour. (Roman)

This touching novel makes you want to recapture the present with love. (Psychologies)

Book Description

A charming, hilarious, and heart-wrenching epistolary novel about a dysfunctional family struggling to love and accept each other--and a Jewish pig farmer in Israel.
