Fear. It remains a constant focus of life in the Middle East. What we have, what we could lose, what others might or did take away from us.
The question is, do you control your fear, or does it control you?
Daniel Blum – scientist, father, soldier – has many reasons to fear. He lost more than he knows when the modern State of Israel fell, following a massive earthquake and Iranian-led attack. Torn from suburban family life and a budding career, Daniel is alone and scarred, enduring subjugation and terror in Hamas-controlled Northern Liberated Palestine.
Together with George Farrah, a figure from his past, Daniel journeys deep under the Carmel mountain, through Egyptian-controlled, quake-ravaged Tel Aviv, and ultimately to the ruins of a secret government research facility. Haunted, Daniel strains the bonds of duty and family as he confronts a world he no longer understands, discovers unintended consequences of his actions, and plumbs the true depth of his loss.
In the Middle East, tragedy on a biblical scale has been, for millennia, the starting point of many dark journeys. The first dystopian Israeli fiction in three decades to be set in a realistic post-Israel Middle East, Enfold Me is a compellingly cold journey, a cruel snapshot of a society in disintegration, and an examination of how one person can be both perpetrator and victim of tragedy.
