New York 1, Tel Aviv 0: Stories by Shelly Oria
Enter the world of New York 1, Tel Aviv 0, where the characters are as intelligent and charming as they are lonely. A couple discovers the ability to stop time together; another couple lives with a constant loud beeping in their apartment, though only one of them can hear it. A father leaves his daughter in Israel to pursue a painting career in New York; a sex worker falls in love with the Israeli photographer who studies her.
These stories explore the tension between an anonymous, globalized world and an irrepressible lust for connection.
