Homesick, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


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.

Review by

Nevo provided many short descriptions of people and events all in a neighborhood between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. His characters included Israelis and Palestinians. I felt that he was able to use few words to make his characters feel human. I cared very much about them and was interested in their lives and problems.
