When David Horovitz emigrated from England to Israel in 1983, it was the fulfillment of a dream. But today, a husband and a father, he is torn between hope and despair, between the desire to make a difference and fear for his family's safety, between staying and going. In this candid and powerful book, Horovitz confronts the heart-wrenching question of whether to continue raising his three children amid the uncertainty and danger that is Israeli daily life. In answering that question he provides us with an often surprising, myth-shattering, and shockingly immediate view of a country perpetually at a crossroads, yet fundamentally different than it was a generation ago. The Israel that Horovitz describes is at once supremely satisfying and unremittingly harsh. It is a land of beauty and spirit, where the Jewish nation has undergone remarkable renewal and a vibrant society is constantly being reshaped. But Horovitz also describes how the unrelenting tension has produced a people that smokes too much, drives too fast, and spends far too much of its time arguing with itself. He makes clear the lasting effects of Yitzhak Rabin's assassination; the increasing incursions by the ultra-Orthodox into the domain of daily life; the anxieties that beset parents as their children approach the age of mandatory military service; and the constant fear of violent attack by fundamentalist extremists. (The book in fact opens, hauntingly, with a description of the aftermath of a bombing just outside a Jerusalem restaurant -- the very place where Horovitz had eaten lunch the day before.) As Americans wrestle with their feelings toward Israel, and as Israel struggles with the question of whether a Jewish state and the principles of democracy are truly compatible, Horovitz illuminates the myriad quotidian experiences -- both good and bad -- that define the country at this volatile time. Here is the moving, mordantly funny, and uncompromising account of one Israeli's life.

Puck rhymes with f*ck for a reason... And I intended to fully explore that reason, as soon as he finished rescuing me, along with the other women I had been kidnapped with. One of whom was a sassy, saucy woman named Layla. I tried to convince her, and myself, that Puck Lawson wasn't my type. She just laughed.
"Honey, Puck isn’t anyone’s type," she told me. "You don’t go looking for guys like Puck. They find you, and somehow, you’re never quite able to walk away after that.” Although, I had a feeling I might be unable to walk at all by the time he was finished with me...
What if Cinderella didn’t want to marry the Prince? And what if she discovered that a man who was in control of his life all day enjoyed giving up that control in the bedroom? Mariella goes to the prince’s balls to find a husband. Unfortunately, in trying to avoid one suitor she finds herself in the arms of the one man she doesn’t want.
Teodor is captivated by the woman he meets at the three events, especially by her openness and sexual skill. Thrilled to have found a bride before his coronation, he proposes, only to have Mariella turn him down. Mariella has been trapped in one situation that was out of her control, and has no desire to exchange it for another. In addition, she has experienced the pain of love lost and is determined not to go through it again. Still, Teodor intrigues her, so she offers a proposal of her own. They will live together until his coronation and then she will make her decision. Hopefully, she can enjoy him in her bed while keeping him out of her heart. Unbeknownst to them both, there is another who wants Teodor’s crown and will stop at nothing – not even murder – to get it. What will it take for Mariella and Teodor to live happily ever after?
