About THE WOLF HUNT
The Wolf Hunt is a head-on collision between the American dream and the Jewish longing for the promised land, as the reality of racial tensions threatens to boil over. While the novel explores the burning questions of Jewish and Israeli identity, it is also a piercing psychological portrait of the relationship between parents and their children, a story about a mother forced to take on the role of a detective, in search of a truth that might destroy her.
The Wolf Hunt is an international bestseller, published in 17 countries, and met with rave reviews around the world. Winner of WIZO prize, Italy, 2023.
