The People of Forever are not Afraid Paperback



This is longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction.

Yael, Avishag and Lea grow up together in a tiny, dusty village in Israel.

They attend high school, gossip about boys, and try to find ways to alleviate the universal boredom of teenage life.

Then at eighteen they are conscripted into the army.

Yael trains marksmen, Avishag stands guard watching refugees throw themselves at barbed-wire fences and Lea, posted at a checkpoint, imagines the stories behind the familiar faces that pass by her day after day.

All of them live in that single intense second before danger erupts, all of them trying to survive however they can.

It is shortlisted for The Jewish Quarterly Wingate Prize.
