In a hilarious world which is despairing, characters like Ezra the albino and places like the Kibbutz dining room grass and the abounded children houses, were children used to live, away from their parents, are gathered together around the hero who is straggling against the Kibbutz, his dead wife, his lover, the rape of his son and first of all, against his own demands.
In a master hand the author reviles all human weakness as they come up to the surface in a society who wanted to create a new man, strong and fierce. This is a requiem to the biggest experiment of the 20th century – the Kibbutz.
In reconciliation but without mercy the author comes even with the Kibbutz Ideal and its institutes. He does it cleverly, trough the founder who order the young nurse to stick her finger to his ass because the doctor said so; through the bad gossip and the "good souls".
This is not a happy story nor it is sad. It is genuine and accurate. It takes the reader to the open space of this vest experiment, giving him to feel the breeze and smell the flowers, and at the same time, to touch the evil that human society can produce.
