Reading choosen passages of the third novel of the distinguished author Dorit Rabinyan
Tender and fiercely written, ALL THE RIVERS is a love story and a war story, a New York story and a Middle East story and an unflinching foray into the forces that bind us and divide us.
Originally published in Israel as Borderlife, ALL THE RIVERS became the center of a political scandal in January 2016 when the Israeli Ministry of Education banned it from high school curriculums on the grounds that intimate relationships between Jews and non-Jews threaten the Jewish identity. Viewed as a “black day to Israeli democracy,” the novel transformed overnight from a work of literature into a symbol of the threat to freedom of expression in Israel. Now an international bestseller that has been translated into seventeen languages, ALL THE RIVERS raises questions about the convergences of homeland and exile, borderlines and destinies.
