    Three Russian-Jewish women take three very different paths after the fall of the tsar. Clara, the revolutionary, becomes Chava in Palestine where she joins the legendary G’dud Ha’Avodah, the socialist Labour Battalion. Her younger sister Manya heads for America, changing her name to Marion in a bid to fulfil her dream of being an actor. Their niece, Zipporah, a committed Zionist, hides from the Soviet secret police until she convinces Clara to help her get to Palestine.
    As the Lonely Fly is an epic story of persecution, migration and dispersal during tumultuous events of the 20th Century, which shines a light on the intertwined fates of Jews and Palestinians – a scenario with deep contemporary resonance. An urgent and moving novel from one of this country’s most gifted story-tellers.
