Praise for Jonathan Wilson's A Palestine Affair
"Like the best of historical fiction, Wilson's story is placed in an imagined past, but it is really happening right now . . . You're likely to stay up late reading."
- The Washington Post Book World
"An engrossing, complex, and fearless tale of politics, arts,
murder, sex, and history (personal and global)."
-Anita Diamant, author of The Red Tent "A Palestine Affair evokes, quite tangibly, the days of the Mandate. This is a true and touching act of the imagination. The book's very sexy, a nostalgic and provocative envisioning of that time. I recommend it highly."
-David Mamet "Worth reading? An Englishman might say: 'Rather.' An American would put it differently: 'You bet it is!' "
