Description

As he starts to question the assumptions of his faith and the Zionist teachings of his youth, Jonathan Garfinkel hears a curious, touching story about a house in Jerusalem that is shared between a Palestinian and a Jew. It impels him to make his first-ever trip to Israel—and the West Bank—and to confront the truths and myths of his upbringing. Ambivalence is a book about connections and separations, about the perils of what links us and the distortions in what divides us. Vivid and dramatic in style, this provocative memoir is as much a portrait of life as a portrait of the Middle East.
