ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A new novel by the great Israeli author, winner of the Man Booker International Award, and a firm candidate for the Nobel Prize. #1 on the best-sellers list in Italy and Israel. A magnificent and revolutionary novel. - Politiken (Denmark) Tuvya Bruk was my grandfather. Vera is my grandmother. Rafael, Rafi, Erre, is, as you know, my father, and Nina ... Nina is not here. She is not here, Nina. But that was always her special contribution to the family, notes Guili, the narrator of Life Plays Games with Me, in her notebook. But for the special occasion that is Vera's 90th birthday party, Nina returns: she has taken three planes to get from the Arctic to the kibbutz to meet her mother, her daughter Guili, and Rafi's still intact veneration of her, the man whose legs still tremble in her presence. This time, Nina is not going to run away: she wants her mother to finally tell her what happened in Yugoslavia during the first part of her life. Vera was then a young Croatian Jew, hopelessly in love with the son of Serbian peasants with no lands or riches, Milosh, imprisoned on charges of being a Stalinist spy. Why was Vera deported to the re-education camps on Goli Otok Island and left alone when she was only six years old?
