The Hilltop by Assaf Gavron
On a rocky, beautiful hilltop stands Ma’aleh Hermesh C, a fledgling community flying under the radar. According to the government it doesn’t exist; according to the military it must be defended.
Hailed as “The Great Israeli Novel” (Time Out Tel Aviv) and winner of the prestigious Bernstein Prize, The Hilltop skewers the complex, often absurd reality of life in Israel, the West Bank settlers, and the nation’s relationship to the United States.
