Regards and Happy Pesach,
The five stories explore the self-destructive streaks of her subjects: a young married couple, sinking into boredom, a young girl in a Russian immigrant family suffers from her step-father's hostility, a Tel Aviv journalist infects his lover with Aids, an intelligent young woman tells her life story as an inmate in a psychiatric hospital, a successful fashion photographer, working between bouts of bulimia and self-mortification.
Kimchi's characters talk about themselves in an idiomatic, uninhibited language, sometimes coarse, sometimes violent. The rough force of these stories and their protagonists assign the author to a very distinctive place in Israeli literature today.
