Deborah Winant

Sorrow about Yulia
This book is a metaphor as it deals with a symbolic existence of nameless people. Only the dead woman has a name. The characters are identified by their functions in the society where they live.The opening paragraph refers to the end of the story which makes it elliptical. Commentary is delivered by various groups of people encountered by the protagonist and works like a Greek chorus. It is a tragic story with humorous lines and it makes the reader aware of the need to search for self as it did for the nameless Resource Manager. It reads like a detective story which it is not. It deals with philosophical concepts and it is critical of wars in general and the situation in Israel in particular.Without giving the plot away, this review probably makes little sense.
