Weeping Susannah, by a Ukrainian Israeli 'actress, journalist, playwright and director', has arrived mostly unheralded, with no flattering quotes, minimal press releases and an unenticing cover.

Weeping Susannah, by a Ukrainian Israeli 'actress, journalist, playwright and director', has arrived mostly unheralded, with no flattering quotes, minimal press releases and an unenticing cover. It is, however, literature, in the Russian tradition - quirky and soul-examining, with that heightened sense of the mystery of everyday life. Susannah's life is mysterious in that, as an adult, she spends it entirely with her widowed mother, whom she allows to take care of her like a baby

An highly original, hilariously funny and moving tale of obsession and human frailty. People don't ask Susannah Rabin whether she's related to the great Israeli leader anymore, in fact mostly people don't ask Susannah anything. She and her mother have cloistered themselves, so that Susannah won't have to be exposed to strangers, be disgusted by them, so that she can function. Just. Their tiny world is invaded when Susannah's glamorous, enigmatic cousin, Naor, arrives from New York. Naor refuses to accept that Susannah is mentally ill, and slowly wins her affection. But their friendship makes Susannah's mother anxious. What is he really doing in Israel? In the end it is this fallible, mixed up young man who will help Susannah discover the way to escape herself and be free. Weeping Susannah is a stunning debut novel about a woman's quest for freedom, set against the vivid melting pot of modern Israel, a nation in search of its own identity.
