This title is presented with a new introduction from the author. ""My Michael" is a beautiful work of great depth and lingers in the mind as a lyric song to his country's people as much as a moving love story". (Arthur Miller). It's 1950s Jerusalem. Hannah Gonen has just married and is thrilled and pained by her young well-meaning husband, Michael.
Haunted by her dreams of two boys who disappeared from Jerusalem after the establishment of the state of Israel, Hannah gradually withdraws from her husband into a private world of fantasy and suppressed desires. "A remarkable, precipient picture of the nature of women". - (A.S. Byatt).
