Dark Prune

Yigal Zur takes us on a grim journey into the world of Ethiopian Jews in Israel. For the first time in Israeli literature, Dark Prune reveals the cruel reality of their life in an unwelcoming country tainted by racial prejudice. A story of death and passion evolves into a social-political suspense novel that moves at a breathtaking pace. In the harsh encounter between army life and the new immigrants from Ethiopia, Dark Prune

exposes the murky depths of the heart and soul of Israeli society, which turns an ugly face to its dark-skinned brothers.
