Summary
Brooklyn, 1975. Shaltiel Feigenberg--professional storyteller, writer and beloved husband--has been taken hostage: abducted from his home, blindfolded and tied to a chair in a dark basement. His captors, an Arab and an Italian, don't explain why the innocent Shaltiel has been chosen, just that his life will be bartered for the freedom of three Palestinian prisoners. As his days of waiting commence, Shaltiel resorts to what he does best: telling stories--to himself and to the men who hold his fate in their hands.
