Secondhand. Very good condition. Minor wear to book corners and edges.
The Fig Tree is a tender book of true stories about family, journeys and home.
Arnold Zable, the bestselling author of Cafe Scheherazade, describes remarkable people struggling through tragic times and rejoicing in the unexpectedness of life itself. Zable writes with wonderful feelings about the Greek villagers who made the long journey to and from Australia, about those lost in the Holocaust and postwar diaspora, and about Jewish actors and writers who found new audiences in their adoptive country.
At the heart of this book is Zable's understanding of our obligations to the wanderers among us, to the dispossessed and the stateless. He makes a gift of their stories in The Fig Tree, celebrating the common threads of humanity that bind us all. (back cover)
