The confessions of Noa Weber : a novel by Gayil Harʼeven( Book )

Acclaimed author Noa Weber has a successful "feminist" life: a strong career, a wonderful daughter she raised alone, and she is a recognized and respected cultural figure. Yet her interior life is bound by her obsessive love for one man--Alek, a Russian emigré and the father of her child, who has drifted in and out of her life. Trying to understand--as well as free herself from--this lifelong obsession, Noa turns her pen on herself, and with relentless honesty dissects her life. Against the evocative setting of turbulent, modern day Israel, this examination becomes a quest to transform irrational desire into a greater, transcendent understanding of love. The Confessions of Noa Weber introduces a startlingly talented writer in a rich tale that illuminates the desires, yearnings, and complexities of life in Israel

Ceaselessly cutting and sewing, Dolly is the scalpel-wielding version of the all-too-familiar Jewish mother archetype, forever operating upon her son with destructive, invasive love. In this grotesque satire of war and the defensive measures taken to survive it, Orly Castel-Bloom ... turns her own scalpel upon that most holy of institutions, the myth of motherhood--and its implications in the life of a nation"--From publisher description

Housebroken : three novellas by Yael Hedaya( Book )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
In a striking debut, three piercing, powerful novellas that unveil the hazards of love and desire. The men, women, and even animals in this enthralling collection live at the mercy of their hearts. Young and old, on two legs or four, they grope for love and tenderness, knowing that all connection is fraught with danger and all relationship random and evanescent. Yet the heart wants what it wants. The title novella, a wrenching account of the end of love, traces a gentle dog's transformation into a vicious beast as the couple who owns him breaks apart. In "The Happiness Game," the tenuous bonds between husband and wife are undermined by black crows and weak hearts, while "Matti" presents a chorus of voices -- doctors, nurses, jilted wife, dying husband -- that recounts an old man's passion for his lover, a fifteen-year-old Lolita. Wise and deft, tart yet tender, written in supple, beautifully inflected prose, Yael Hedaya's Housebroken navigates the moments of decision, betrayal, longing, and jealousy that torment the souls of wounded lovers
