In his new novel, renowned Israeli author Yehoshua shelves discussions of Mideast politics for a more emotional reading of Israel’s many divisions, exploring the delicate dance of class, race, and belief through a contemporary comedy of manners that is alternately humorous and deeply melancholy. A neurotic, stubborn, but sympathetic professor of Algerian history searches for the cause of his eldest son’s divorce five years before — a shadowy event that haunts both men. Between the professor’s obsessing and meddling, ”Bride” deftly ties Mideast history, internecine academic battling, Arab-Jewish relations, and marital dysfunction into a moving drama that, typical of the region, offers no simple resolution.
