Inhaltsangabe: "An Improbable Friendship" is the dual biography of Israeli Ruth Dayan, now ninety-eight, who was Moshe Dayan s wife for thirty-seven years, and Palestinian journalist Raymonda Tawil, Yasser Arafat s mother-in-law, now seventy-four. It reveals for the first time the two women s surprising and secret forty-year friendship and delivers the story of their extraordinary and turbulent lives growing up in a war-torn country. Based on personal interviews, diaries, and journals drawn from both womenRuth lives today in Tel Aviv, Raymonda in Maltaauthor Anthony David delivers a fast-paced, fascinating narrative that is a beautiful story of reconciliation and hope in a climate of endless conflict. By experiencing their stories and following their budding relationship, which began after the Six-Day War in 1967, we learn the behind-the-scenes, undisclosed history of the Middle East s most influential leaders from two prominent women on either side of the ongoing conflict. An award-winning biographer and historian, Anthony David brings us the story of unexpected friendship while he discovers the true pasts of two outstanding women. Their story gives voice to Israelis and Palestinians caught in the Middle East conflict and holds a persistent faith in a future of peace."

Rezension: There are many powerful men in this riveting bookMoshe Dayan, Yasser Arafat, Ezer Weizman, among othersand enough intrigue, violence, and danger to fill a thriller. But the two suns at the center of this illuminating dual biography are womenbrilliant, passionate, driven feminists whose unique friendship should serve as a model for international relations and people-to-people dialogue. Without downplaying their political, cultural, and religious differences, Anthony David deftly describes what fuels the enduring relationship between Ruth Dayan and Raymonda Tawiltheir capacity to honor the dignity and aspirations of the other and their indefatigable quest for peace. Had Ruth and Raymonda been in charge, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would have ended four decades ago. Think about that as you dive into this compelling story. Letty Cottin Pogrebin, author of "Single Jewish Male Seeking Soul Mate" and founding editor of "Ms." magazine
To someone like me who has been deeply involved in pursuing peace between Israelis and Palestinians for fifty years, this book reveals unexpected nuggets of gold in describing the unlikely friendship between the much older Ruth Dayan and the fearless beauty, Raymonda Tawil. This untold story through the eyes of two extraordinary women, both feminists, pursuers of peace who never gave up, is a compelling read. Especially riveting is the account of their respective daughters, Yael Dayan, writer and activist, and Suha Tawil, widow of Yasser Arafat. It s a revelation. Lilly Rivlin, filmmaker and longtime peace activist"
