    Pumpkinflowers eBook å Hardcover pumpkinflowers mobile, Pumpkinflowers KindleSlowly but steadily I made my way through Matti Friedman's stunning new book PUMPKINFLOWERS is a relatively slender volume and many of its chapters are uite short But it's powerful and intense and I read it carefully and in small doses I must add that as I read I was aware of an additional layer of meaning because my reading time coincided with Israel's Memorial Day and Independence DayPUMPKINFLOWERS has already been receiving a lot of excellent attention See for example these reviews Listen to Matti's conversation with The New York Times Book Review's Pamela Paul And read a related piece by Matti for TheAtlanticcomThen get your hands on a copy of the book

    Pumpkinflowers eBook å Hardcover pumpkinflowers mobile, Pumpkinflowers KindleThis book was recommended to me by a friend who served in the IDF as a lone soldier just a few years ago It was an ideal way to spend part of my Memorial Day Weekend It's a beautifully written glimpse into the experience of being in the military It's the story of a few individual soldiers who all served at the same station in Lebanon called the Pumpkin One of the soldier's story is the writer's own experience in the IDF The story and writing is very powerful and very personal When you are fighting it really doesn't matter if you support the right or left if you believe in the military or are a cynic if you are a star athlete an intellect a medic or all of three You may bring all of that with you but when the fighting begins it uickly fades away Yet for the majority of your time serving you mostly aren't fighting You spend your days washing pots and pans cleaning your living area reading training and swapping stories And then with no notice you are suddenly fighting and your only focus
