Bestselling writer Dorit Rabinyan, author of Persian Brides and Strand of a Thousand Pearls, talks about her work, in particular her new novel All the Rivers. Her story - of trying to bridge the gaps between Israelis and Palestinians - is so controversial that it is banned in Israeli schools as it risks damaging the 'identity of the nation' with its frank and tender depiction of a taboo relationship.Read More
