Adon, Lili, and Shuki play out their dangerous dance of life in the salty air in front of the sweeping variety of Jaffa’s human fabric: owners and residents of cafés, an extended family with all its peculiarities, Catholic and Greek Orthodox monks, superstitious fishermen, a business owner and an unwilling mistress.
Life in all its complexity plays out between Adon and Lili, especially as Lili begins to have glimpses of what lies beyond her brutal existence so far.
The tension rises from page to page as Shlomo Kalo, nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature, weaves another marvelously written and realistic fictional tapestry packed with insights into the darker side of life, as well as a soul lifting depiction of people struggling to make a difference – or who are just getting by on their wits and love of each other.
In LILI, from pain and conflict comes hope and salvation
“Lili is an ambitious, sweeping book, especially moving at the end…Shlomo Kalo is, obviously, a writer of talent, vision and significant accomplishment.” Daniel Menaker, HarperCollins, US
