Philip Abu Marlowe in Tel Aviv

The April 26 edition of Time Out Tel Aviv has an article about The Collaborator of Bethlehem that includes this, translated of course from Hebrew:

“Here comes the first Palestinian detective — Philip Abu Marlowe.”

I like the reference to my favorite fictional character, Chandler’s honest, sensitive, hardboiled shamus. The article goes on to add that “there are few journalists like Matt Beynon Rees who decide to tell the story of the conflict through more human and less sterile eyes.”

The book will be published in Hebrew by Keter early next year.
