A sweeping novel featuring dozens of characters from all walks of life and points of view, City of a Thousand Gates presents an unforgettable portrait of modern-day Israel and Palestine. Always human and never dogmatic, Sacks’s novel captures the tensions, dreams, aspirations, and fears of those dealing with boundaries, gates, and prejudices every day of their lives.
