Review: A History of the Middle Eastside, by Jonathon Narvey
Review here: http://www.libertaspost.com/
A History of the Middle Eastside, written by Jonathan Narvey and published late last year, follows a long line of books exploring complicated political issues through satire. And it does it well.Basically, History is a crime noir allegory for the history of Israel, starting with the influx of European Jews into Israel ( then known as Palestine ) in the late 1940's in the wake of the Second World War, and the Israelis' battle for independence following the withdrawal of the British from the Mandate of Palestine and the UN's creation of the Partition Plan for Palestine.
I hope that in the spirit of good neighbourliness people will read books by our neighbours and friends in this field. Jonathon Narvey is one such friend, as is Walker Morrow. Anything else is a bonus. Narvey is a clever guy and a good writer. I haven't read the book above but my expectation is that he's done a fine job. Please let us know if you agree, and feel free to review this book as well. I might even do so myself if I can bring myself to write a review.
