520    In this book, the Israeli author has created a genre-
       defying drama, part play, part prose, pure poetry, to tell
       the story of bereaved parents setting out to reach their 
       lost children. It begins in a small village in Israel, 
       where a man announces to his wife that he is leaving, 
       embarking on a journey in to an undefinded place where he 
       hopes to find and to speak to their dead son. The man, 
       called simply Walking Man, paces in ever-widening circles 
       around the town. One after another, all manner of 
       townsfolk fall into step with him (the Net-Mender, the 
       Midwife, the Elderly Math Teacher, even the Duke), each 
       enduring his or her own loss. The walkers raise questions 
       of grief and bereavement: Can death be overcome by an 
       intensity of speech or memory? Is it possible, even for a 
       fleeting moment, to call to the dead and free them from 
       their death? The answer to such questions is a hymn to 
       these characters, who ultimately find solace and hope in 
       their communal act of breaching death's hermetic 
520    Announcing I have to go, a grief-stricken Israeli villager
       takes leave of his bewildered wife, embarking on a journey
       to there -- an impossibly undefined place where he hopes 
       to find and to speak with his dead son. As he sets out 
       walking, in ever-widening circles around his village, the 
       Walking Man becomes a Pied Piper of Bereavement
