Description

No Man's Land is a novel told in the spirit of Joseph Heller, drawn with the wide brushstrokes of Tom Robbins, with the quirkiness of character inspired by Anne Tyler and the narrative verve of Robert Altman. No Man's Land confirms a great truth-a great truth being a commonplace everyone tries to ignore-that the century-long conflict in the Middle East really is complicated, and that if there were an easy solution it would have been implemented generations ago. Recounting the course of the week that culminated in the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin in November 1995, No Man's Land tells of kibbutz farmers, real-estate developers, Arab refugees, right-wing settlers, archeologists, protesters for and against-and the news media-who all converge on a disputed tract of land: a baseball diamond built on the site where ancient prophets once spoke. Terry Seas, the novel's narrator, receives an oracle on the pitchers mound foretelling murder, and must struggle against fate to prevent disaster, even if it destroys all chance of finding true love.show more
