Lily is a young emigrant student exploring the wonders and terrors of her new land when she meets the man of her dreams.

Ami, a former actor, is handsome, intelligent and exciting - but, like his beautiful, disintegrating country, he has a terrible flaw - he is an army interrogator.

However, as Lily and Ami's unexpected passion grows, so too does the shadow that hangs over them - the unspeakable horrors which Ami's work forces him to face.

In today's world, where danger, terrorism and the possibility of war are a part of all our lives, no novel could be more brilliantly, terrifyingly contemporary. Yet TEN THOUSAND LOVERS is set in Israel in the Seventies: a dazzling backdrop to a universal story of passion, suffering and the transcending power of love.
