This searing novel tells the journey of a young Israeli soldier, accompanied by his father on drive to meet with a military psychiatrist because he can no longer tolerate army life. Yair Assulin penetrates the torn world of the hero, whose journey is npt just that of a young man facing a crucial dilemma, but a tour of the soul and depths of Israeli society and of those elsewhere who resist regimented existence. Weary of being forced to be part of a larger collective, can one fulfill a yearning for an existence free of politics, the news cycle and the imperative for perpetual battle-readiness - without risking the respect of those we love most?
