Publisher's Summary

"We were not a fit, the Holy Land and I..."

So begins the tale of a 5-year-old Jewish refugee arriving in the new State of Israel in 1949. As the author grows into a young pacifist, an aspiring musician, and a student of Arab culture, he often finds himself at odds with the macho and Zionist country he loves... and eventually leaves. Told alternately in poetry and prose, full of both laughter and heartbreak, Lost in the Dunes is a personal, refreshingly honest memoir of a boy - and a nation - coming of age.
