Past Continuous, Paperback / softback Book

Past Continuous Paperback / softback



A reissue of one of the classic works of twentieth-century Jewish fiction; Past Continuous depicts the crises in the lives of three Israeli men - Goldman, Israel, and Caesar - as they attempt to focus their lives and extract meaning from chaos.

The reader is drawn into a mass of family tangles and social exhaustion -- wives and ex-wives, passing mistresses and crushing marriages, desperate intrigues and disappointments, the loss of children, friends, ideals.

Past Continuous is a brilliant tour de force, a Joycean panorama of the lives of three men, their families, their lovers, and their friends in the quintessentially modern city of Tel Aviv.

As much a novel about Tel Aviv - its landscape, its idiosyncratic atmosphere, and its history - as it is about the human condition.
