This volume presents the Old Testament book of Samuel, with an introduction by Meir Shalev. In two parts, the book tells the story of one of the most charismatic of Old Testament characters, King David and his meteoric rise and inevitable fall.
Meir Shalev was born in 1948 on Nahalal, Israel’s first moshav, and is one of Israel’s most celebrated novelists. His books have been translated into more than twenty languages. A columnist for the Israeli daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, Shalev lives in Jerusalem and in northern Israel with his wife and children.
