Ayelet Tsabari : The Best Place on Earth: Stories

(Short Stories, 272 pp. 2016)

These eleven stories, set between Israel and Canada, feature mothers and children, soldiers and bohemians, lovers and best friends, all searching for their place in the world. Tsabari's Mizrahi characters grapple with love, violence, faith, the slipperiness of identity, and the challenges of balancing old traditions with modern times.
