Item description for Lunar Eclipse by Alona Kimchi...
The five stories explore the self-destructive streaks of her subjects: a young married couple, sinking into boredom; a young girl in a Russian immigrant family suffers from her step-father's hostility; a Tel Aviv journalist infects his lover with Aids; an intelligent young woman tells her life story as an inmate in a psychiatric hospital; a successful fashion photographer, working between bouts of bulimia and self-mortification.
Kimchi's characters talk about themselves in an idiomatic, uninhibited language, sometimes coarse, sometimes violent. The rough force of these stories and their protagonists assign the author to a very distinctive place in Israeli literature today.
