Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A writer travels to Israel to research a novel, but he ends up drawn into the Suez Crisis How did Gideon Zadok, an American novelist and screenwriter, end up pinned by artillery shells in Mitla Pass? It was never his plan to fight someone else's war. He came to Israel to research a book, but also to escape a crumbling marriage, a dysfunctional family, and the pressures of newfound success in the States. But in fleeing from personal troubles he charged headfirst into one of the great global crises of the twentieth century. Perhaps Leon Uris's most introspective work, Mitla Pass portrays a man caught between his own demons and the epic sweep of Middle Eastern history. This book features an illustrated biography of Leon Uris including rare photos from the author's estate. Uris is to the twentieth century what Charles Dickens was to the nineteenth. -Associated Press Leon Uris (1924-2003) was an author of fiction, nonfiction, and screenplays whose works include numerous best-selling novels. His epic Exodus (1958) has been translated into over fifty languages. Uris's work is notable for its focus on dramatic moments in contemporary history, including World War I and its aftermath, the birth of modern Israel, and the Cold War. Through the massive success of his novels and his skill as a storyteller, Uris has had enormous influence on popular understanding of twentieth-century history.
