Feathers by Haim Beʼer( )

32 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Experimental in structure and mood, Feathers features kaleidoscopic jumps in time, back and forth in the narrator's memories from boyhood to adulthood. Its moods swing wildly from hilarity to the macabre, from familial warmth to the loneliness of adolescence. Jerusalem and its inhabitants, as well as the emotional life of the narrator, are splintered and reconstituted, shattered and patched. This fragmentation, combined with a preoccupation with death and physical dissolution and dreamlike flights of imagination, evokes an Israeli magical realism."--BOOK JACKET
ʻEt ha-zamir by Haim Beʼer( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in Hebrew and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pure element of time by Haim Beʼer( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pure Element of Time is constructed in the form of a triptych, in which the two end panels frame the central and principal scene. The first part focuses primarily on the narrator's grandmother, a living archive of the family's history, as well as a natural storyteller whose tales entrance her grandson. The third part, which occurs principally after his father's death, depicts the author's first steps as a writer. The middle part, the heart of the book, interweaves Be'er's childhood and adolescence with the story of his parents' marriage - a second and late marriage for both, into which each brought a difficult burden from the past. The deepest, most significant relationship is the one between the boy and his mother, with whom he forms an alliance - opposing his embittered father - which is never broken. Be'er reveals his mother as the book's true heroine, for she shapes her son's character and sets him on his path as a writer."--Jacket
