An Improbable Friendship is the dual biography of Israeli Ruth Dayan, now ninety-eight, who was Moshe Dayan’s wife for thirty-seven years, and Palestinian journalist Raymonda Tawil, Yasser Arafat’s mother-in-law, now seventy-four. It reveals for the first time the two women’s surprising and secret forty-year friendship and delivers the story of their extraordinary and turbulent lives growing up in a war-torn country. Based on personal interviews, diaries, and journals drawn from both women—Ruth lives today in Tel Aviv, Raymonda in Malta—author Anthony David delivers a fast-paced, fascinating narrative that is a beautiful story of reconciliation and hope in a climate of endless conflict. By experiencing their stories and following their budding relationship, which began after the Six-Day War in 1967, we learn the behind-the-scenes, undisclosed history of the Middle East’s most influential leaders from two prominent women on either side of the ongoing conflict. An award-winning biographer and historian, Anthony David brings us the story of unexpected friendship while he discovers the true pasts of two outstanding women. Their story gives voice to Israelis and Palestinians caught in the Middle East conflict and holds a persistent faith in a future of peace.

The extraordinary true story of a secret forty-year friendship between two women who should have been bitter enemies. One: the beautiful Raymonda Tawil, the mother-in-law of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The other: Ruth Dayan, widow of General Moshe Dayan, the most celebrated Jewish general since Joshua and the man who spent much of his military career trying to hunt Arafat. The story of these two remarkable women's turbulent lives and their clandestine friendship, brilliantly told by award-winning author Anthony David, gives voice to Israelis and Palestinians caught up in the Middle East conflict. It also provides an insight into the Middle East's most influential leaders from two prominent women on either side of the conflict. That Ruth and Raymonda continue their friendship to this day, despite its possible danger, is a testament not only to their affection for each other but also their joint commitment to seeing an end to the violence in the Middle East. Theirs is an unwavering faith in a future of peace, and An Improbable Friendship a beautiful story of reconciliation.

A life of one of Israel’s greatest heroes, as seen through his daughter’s eyes Moshe Dayan was one of the greatest military leaders in Israel’s short history. A child of the first kibbutz movement in British Palestine, he went on to lead Israel to victory in the 1948 War of Independence and to liberate Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War. Dayan was not only a soldier but a politician, an archaeologist, and a larger-than-life figure who helped shape the state of Israel. In My Father, His Daughter, Yaël Dayan, who herself served in the Israeli Parliament, shares an uncensored look into her father’s life and her own conflicted relationship with him. With poignancy and candor, Dayan creates a profound yet nuanced profile of her father. She relates his strong national pride, his boldness in dealing with other world leaders, and his troubles at home to his disintegrating marriage and multiple affairs. As revealing as My Father, His Daughter is of the man behind the myth, it is also a snapshot of a loving relationship between Yaël and Moshe Dayan, and of a daughter’s admiration and respect for a complicated but loving father.

In the bestselling tradition of Tuesdays with Morrie and The Last Lecture, a dying father's deeply moving legacy for his sons is winning hearts and minds around the world. At just 38 and at the height of his military career, highly decorated soldier Colonel Mark Weber was diagnosed with deadly V gastro-intestinal cancer. Given just four months to live, he began to write a letter to his three young sons so that as they grew up without him they would at least have the lessons that living - and dying - had taught him about courage and fear, pride and humility, words and actions, and so much more. Over time that letter became the extraordinary Tell My Sons. This profoundly moving father's story has proved to be a gift that has reached far beyond his three sons. It is for anyone who could use the best advice a dying hero has to offer. As the bestselling author of Tuesdays With Morrie, Mitch Albom says: 'Mark Weber's story has touched me in such a profound way. It's real, brave, gritty, honest, inspiring and a gift to us all. Every page exudes courage, honesty, and an indomitable spirit'.

A vibrant, propulsive literary thriller that charts the high-stakes journey of a young man trying to find his place in a country that has lost its way​ As the 1980s draw to a close, South Africa is a maelstrom of political violence with the apartheid regime in its death throes. Young Martin Helger is the struggling odd duck at an elite private boys school in Johannesburg, with his father a rough-handed scrap dealer and his brother a mysterious legend. When a beautiful and manipulative American arrives at the family home, Martin soon finds himself wrenched out of his isolated bubble and thrust into the raw heart of the struggle. At the same time, secrets from the past begin to emerge and old sins long buried return in terrifying new ways, tearing at the Helgers, a second-generation Jewish family, even as the larger forces of history and politics tear apart the country as a whole. Mercy is in short supply and ultimately Martin must rely on alternative strengths to protect himself and fight for a better future. From the acclaimed author of the National Jewish Book Award–winning debut novel The Lion Seeker, The Mandela Plot is at once a riveting literary thriller, a moving coming of age tale, and an unforgettable journey through a world that entertains and terrifies in equal measure, and holds profound resonance for the present moment.
