Homesick

Homesick

Author(s): Eshkol Nevo

Location(s): Israel

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1995

It is 1995 and Noa and Amir have decided to move in together. Noa is studying photography in Jerusalem and Amir is a psychology student in Tel Aviv, so they choose a tiny flat in a village in the hills, between the two cities. Their flat is separated from that of their landlords, Sima and Moshe Zakian, by a thin wall, but on each side we find a different home – and a different world.

Homesick is a beautiful, clever and moving story about history, love, family and the true meaning of home.
