Not the Israel My Parents Promised Me

This is the last work of the late, great Harvey Pekar, who passed away two years ago at the age of 70: an autobiographical, narrative account of Pekar’s own relationship to the Land and State of Israel (which he never visited). It’s a political work, but primarily a personal story of lessons half-learned, allegiances formed and broken.
