The book

An abandoned woman searching for love, a deeply religious immigrant caretaker, a disillusioned researcher trapped in her marriage. Three women whose lives seem as far apart as possible, united by a common secret.

When Orna meets Gil on an online dating site, their lackluster affair seems like nothing more than a way to stave off the pain of her recent divorce. But soon it becomes clear that Gil may not be exactly who he claims to be. And Orna’s own lies may be weaving an unexpected trap for her.

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the gritty Holon neighborhood in Tel Aviv, this enigmatic and intelligent novel is in fact an intricate puzzle. Mishani’s first standalone book explores Israel’s forgotten margins, unearthing complicated layers, conflicts, and prejudices. At turns shocking, deceptive, and subversive, Three is a slow burning psychological thriller from one of Israel’s most beloved writers.

“A sophisticated literary ‘apparatus’ [ . . . ] Three is written like a Shakespearean play [ . . . ] It will be remembered as a work that heralded a new-wave in Israeli fiction just as My Michael by Amos Oz once did.” —Haaretz Book Review

“A subtly narrated, moving novel.”—Sylvia Staude, Frankfurter Rundschau

“The twist around which this book is constructed affects not just the content of the novel and its plot but disrupts the whole genre.”—Yedioth Ahronot
