Joseph Madmony’s (Restoration) probing fictional biography of a top Israeli general turned politician (Alon Aboutboul) encompasses 40 years of Israeli history while providing an intimate portrait of an obstinate man whose principles come before everything else. Just the right hint of Madmony’s characteristic mystical overtones adds to its allusive weight.
