Críticas:

Publisher's Weekly "Best Books of the Year" list.

"A moving, unsentimental reckoning with death and renewal."

New York Times Book  Review  "100 Notable Books of the Year."

"[An] astonishing new novel...Like sacred music, the deepest chords resound."

New York Times Book Review "100 Notable Books of the Year."

Publisher''s Weekly "Best Books of the Year" list.

"Compelling reading...[A Woman in Jerusalem] is a realistic tale of everyday life in Israel, gracefully told, that sometimes has a mythic quality; at other times it is playful."

"An elegantly structured, thoroughly accessible story, albeit one with rich philosophical layers...A WOMAN moves us with deep insights into the meaning of home, belonging and the fate of the stranger."

"The author beautifully renders a humanity that transcends culture and ritual, the distinctly personal engagement of a lonely man and the woman in his care, no obstacle too great in a quest for the fulfillment of a promise."

"Yehoshua is examining a deeper question: what does it mean to be human--humane--especially during troubled times? ''When Jerusalem is burning, does any of this matter?'' The answer for both the author and his main character seems to be: ''more than ever.''"

Reseña del editor:

A woman in her forties is a victim of a suicide bombing at a Jerusalem market. Her body lies nameless in a hospital morgue. She had apparently worked as a cleaning woman at a bakery, but there is no record of her employment. When a Jerusalem daily accuses the bakery of "gross negligence and inhumanity toward an employee," the bakery’s owner, overwhelmed by guilt, entrusts the task of identifying and burying the victim to a human resources man. This man is at first reluctant to take on the job, but as the facts of the woman’s life take shape—she was an engineer from the former Soviet Union, a non-Jew on a religious pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and, judging by an early photograph, beautiful—he yields to feelings of regret, atonement, and even love.

At once profoundly serious and highly entertaining, A. B. Yehoshua astonishes us with his masterly, often unexpected turns in the story and with his ability to get under the skin and into the soul of Israel today.
