New Novella: JerusaLand, by Nathan Szajnberg

Categories: Books
lil'N.Szajnberg-TImagine, Professor Osef says to his eleven year old niece, imagine if Jerusalem were to be turned into an amusement park, a Disney land for Jews and Christians and Moslems.  The Temple Mount would be crowned with a rainbow-hued roller coaster; fireworks near David’s Citadel; a Lover’s Lane boat ride by the Western Wall.  This is how Professor Osef imagines Jerusalem that his niece would enjoy, not the dour stones paced by dour men.  Osef is about to leave the City he once loved. Join him as he does last rounds at the King David, the kosher burger spot, the send-offs by faculty colleagues. But, this is Israel and Death lurks in the shuk nearby.
