" Dolly City -a city without a base, without a past, without an infrastructure. Themost demented city in the world." In the midst of a futuristic-primitive metropolis, the accumulation of all our urban nightmares, Doctor Dolly (certified by theUniversity of Katmandu) finds a newborn baby in a black plastic bag, and decidesto become a mother. Overcome by unfamiliar maternal urges, Dolly dispenseswith her private lab of rare diseases and turns all her surgical passion onto herson. Ceaselessly cutting and sewing, Dolly is the scalpel-wielding version of theall-too-familiar Jewish Mother archetype, forever operating upon her son with destructive, invasive love. In this grotesque satire of war and the defensive measurestaken to survive it, Orly Castel-Bloom, one of Israelrs"s most provocative and original writers, turns her own scalpel upon that most holy of institutions, the myth ofmotherhood-and its implications in the life of a nation.

Orly Castel-Bloomwas born in TelAviv in 1960 andis a leading voicein contemporaryHebrew literature.She is the author of eleven booksand was twice the recipient of thePrime Minister's Prize.

Dalya Bilu lives in Jerusalem andhas been awarded a number ofprizes for her translation work,including the Israeli Ministry ofCulture Prize for Translation, andthe Jewish Book Council Award forHebrew-English Translation.
