The Hilltop, Paperback

Description

A brilliant and hilarious satirical novel about the state of twenty-first century Israel On a rock-strewn hilltop in the heart of the West Bank stands a lone second-hand shipping container, a generator and some goats.

On this contested land, Othniel Assis - under the wary gaze of the neighbouring Palestinian village - installs his ever-expanding family.

As he cheerfully manipulates government agencies, more settlers arrive and, with a hodge-podge of bankers, teachers, kibbutzniks and townies, religious and secular, the outpost takes root.

But when a curious journalist stumbles into their midst, the settlement becomes the focus of an international diplomatic scandal.
