Book Review: An Egyptian Novel by Orly Castel-Bloom

Posted on October 26, 2017




“A recurring theme is how and to what extent characters recover from setbacks, displacement, and disappointments. Tel-Aviv, particularly north Tel-Aviv (an established affluent neighborhood in the later chapters/stories but new construction in the early ones) where the Kastil brothers and their families live, gives the book a sense of place.” — from my review of An Egyptian Novel by Orly Castel-Bloom in New York Journal of Books
