Raising Sparks


Wednesday 10th October 2018 at 6:30pm  |  Daunt Books Hampstead


Ariel Kahn‘s debut novel, shortlisted for this year’s Not the Booker prize, is a magical-realist love story set in modern-day Israel. Betrayals, rituals and a prophecy that she will die young lead teenager Malka to travel from her ultra-orthodox Jewish community in Jerusalem to the mystical mountain city of Safed, and on to the secular city of Tel Aviv, seeking answers. Alternating between the points of view of Malka and her father’s most promising student, Moshe, Raising Sparks is a celebration of mystical texts, discovering one’s inner power and the highs (and lows) of first love. Ariel will be chatting about the book with Ian Black, former Middle East editor for the Guardian, and author, most recently, of Enemies and Neighbours.
