Childish Things

My son’s pyromaniacal tendencies, Bibi, and bedtime stories that go awry

Real World

A hit Israeli reality-TV show makes something smart, layered, and truthful from a genre’s usual mush

Strange Bedfellows

Talking about lizards at a writers’ conference in Bali

Seeing Things

When fast-food-induced hallucinations of Chelsea Clinton precede Yom Kippur, extreme measures must be taken

Dog Days

A hot day in Tel Aviv, a bored child, and a discussion of the Commandments

The Hangover

After the World Cup, in Israel a relished distraction from daily life, the comedown is hard

Yours, Insincerely

Autographing books at a festival is not as much fun as it used to be

Food Fight

Make hummus, not war

Up in the Air

The blissful idleness, and useless information dump, of a frequent flyer

Idol Worship

When we were kids, I wanted to follow in my brother’s footsteps. Now, as adults, I’m reminded why.
