Praise

“It’s impossible not to be awestruck by the depth and power rendered in [Ayelet] Tsabari’s stories.”Elle
 
“Tsabari creates complex, conflicted, prickly people you’ll want to get to know better.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“There’s remarkable scope in Ayelet Tsabari’s The Best Place on Earth, which interweaves stories of discrimination, loss, displacement, sex, death, religion, and a host of other issues. And yet, despite the range of viewpoints and the different facets of Israeli society explored, this is a collection that always stays intensely personal, the broader forces of history moving not merely across nations but within the souls of her beautifully conceived characters.”—Phil Klay, National Book Award–winning author of Redeployment
 
“With incredible compassion and a delicate touch, Ayelet Tsabari explores the heartbreak inherent in forming bonds, whether with another person or with a whole country. The Best Place on Earth, a complicated love song to Israel, is a sure-footed and stunningly skillful debut.”—Shelly Oria, author of New York 1, Tel Aviv 0
 
“Powerful . . . brilliant . . . These stories . . . depict minorities so skillfully, with such a light and accurate touch.”The Daily Beast
 
“Highly recommended . . . Compelling and compassionate; [Tsabari’s stories] speak out from the heart of Israeli society and experiences. . . . The stories of The Best Place on Earth leave you wishing they wouldn’t end.”The Times of Israel

“This short story collection is a fiction debut for Tsabari, but it demonstrates that she is already a talented storyteller. . . . Her writing has an immediacy and power that invites readers into her characters’ psyches. . . . Tsabari’s characters will step off the page to captivate readers.”—Publishers Weekly
