Shimrit Lustig

A shrewd businessman, Joseph Luria wanted to take over the world—and almost succeeded. When he dies during the deal of his life, he leaves behind him immense debts and a luxury house on a hill: a monument to fast, showy, and grandiose money making. His astonished widow and their actress daughter are left alone in the big house, lost among expensive art collections, their soaring memories, and the debris left after the crash.

Life is lived at its fiercest at the Luria house. This is a poignant and hilariously funny family story, an effortlessly conducted symphony of realism and fantasy that draws readers to its characters until its surprising ending.
