Israel: my home, my friend, my chaperone, my guide, my heart.
Israel: my exile, my otherness, my boundary, myopia, my shadow.
Spectrum for an Untouchable is an experimental book that aspires to explain Israel, and what it means to be Israeli, from an autobiographical standpoint. The writing draws upon the color spectrum, interweaving it with memories, shapes, unseeable images, and gaps of vision in order to describe and question a place. Israel is written of as a person. It is a break-up that can never be complete, and a love that can never be fulfilled. It is a dream space that intertwines fear and pain with recognition and hope.
