An erotic tale of jealousy, obsession, and revenge suffused with the rich flavors and intoxicating aromas of Israel's Mediterranean coast. An unnamed narrator writes a letter to an old college friend, Adam, with whom he has been staying since his abrupt return to the States from Israel. Now that the narrator is moving on to a new location, he finally reveals the events that led him to Adam's door, set in motion by a chance encounter with Uzi, a spice merchant whose wares had developed a cult following. From his first meeting with Uzi, the narrator is overwhelmed by an animal attraction that leads him to derail his life, withdrawing from friends and prolonging his stay in a small town north of Tel Aviv. As he becomes increasingly entangled in Uzi's life-and by extension the lives of Uzi's ex-wife and children-his passion turns sinister, ultimately threatening the well-being of all around him. Written in a devious style that keeps you guessing until the end, The Parting Gift is an engrossing page-turner and a shrewd exploration of the roles men assume or are forced to take on as lovers, as fathers, as Israelis, as Palestinians.
