    Summary Muck By Dror Burstein ä PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free Muck By Dror BursteIt’s hard to refer to something so apocalyptic as an entertainment but that’s primarily what it is a brilliant entertaining display of imagination and literary including translation skills This novel is singular in many ways including the way Burstein melds together the biblical and contemporary It is also a critiue of present day Israel amazingly with an omission of Palestinians that is not right wing because Jeremiah lived in an era of tribes far smaller than Palestinians; politically it’s making fun of the right’s insistence of seeing the land of Israel in historical terms — when does this stopHowever what makes this novel is not the politi
