The Jerusalem DiaryHans Keller wrote his Jerusalem Diary in 1977 and 1979 during two visits that he and Milein Cosman made to the Mishkenot Sha’ananim, a residence for writers and artists. This Diary, which he described as an ‘anti-journal’, was initially a reaction to Saul Bellow’s To Jerusalem and Back. But the result is far more than a topical riposte: at a time of renewed turbulence in the Middle East, it is a sharp and insightful record of the artistic, social and political life of Israel at a crucial juncture in its history.

Wonderfully illustrated by Milein Cosman’s drawings, this book won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Book of the Year prize for 2001.
