Sallah by Ephraim Kishon( visu )
8 editions published between 1964 and 1990 in Hebrew and English and held by 96 libraries worldwide
Kishon's subversive satire of Israeli bureacracy initiated the production of a series of films centering on Ashkenazi/Sephardi tension. The story takes place in the fifties during a period of mass immigration to Israel. Topol stars as Sallah, the alternately wily and humble hero who lives with his large family in the ma'abara, spartan transient camps, overwhelmingly populated by Sephardic arrivals who were supposed to stay only for a short time but remained for years. Lazy, amiable Sallah, whose major talent is backgammon, demands shikkun (permanent housing) as he was promised. In his attempt to obtain it, he tries his luck at various schemes ranging from selling a gigantic bulldog from the kibbutz to a bourgeois couple, selling himself to rival political parties and trying to sell his daughter to the man offering the highest marriage price
