Abstract:The linked short stories in this collection, which come together to form a novel, explore the boundary-crossings that both define and displace identity for women, Israelis and Jews. Set between 1982 and 2003, these stories traverse the borders between Israel and the United States, the personal and the political, the imperfectly-remembered past and the present time. Linked by one main character, as well as by setting and theme, the stories seek to integrate dissonant fragments of family stories, history, memory, and myth into a multidimensional narrative of family and the self. My method focuses on constructing narrative through juxtaposition and accumulation rather than conventional linear form. I also combine autobiographical subject matter with material that has been fully imaginatively transformed, a technique that is not dissimilar to the Surrealists' work with objets trouvés or certain types of collage. The stories draw on my own background as the daughter of an Israeli and as a secular Jew in examining questions of feminine and Jewish identity, and the relationship of American Jews to Israel; I seek to integrate the flexibility of fiction with the immediacy and intimacy of memoir in complex and resonant ways. Overall, the collection locates itself in the space created by what Gloria Anzaldúa has called “the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary,” the place where identity as well as genre are troubled and re-imagined, unsettled and re-formed.
