A masterpiece of storytelling. Of two real people, an Israeli and a Palestinian man, who both lost teenage daughters (one to a suicide bomber and one to an Israeli soldier's bullet) and who have become close friends and allies in a attempt to reshape common understanding of the conflict.  The novel is brilliant, empathic, illuminating - it will cause you to rethink much of what you "know" and ask questions you didn't know to ask.  The book is not political, it simply weaves together an incredible number of stories and perspectives and history.
