The Drive represents a new landmark in Israeli fiction ... Israel's own The Catcher in the Rye.
--The Los Angeles Review of Books

This searing novel tells the journey of a young Israeli soldier at the breaking point, unable to continue carrying out his military service, yet terrified of the consequences of leaving the army. As the soldier and his father embark on a lengthy drive to meet with a military psychiatrist, Yair Assulin penetrates the torn world of the hero, whose journey is not just that of a young man facing a crucial dilemma, but a tour of the soul and depths of Israeli society and of those everywhere who resist regimentation and violence. Weary of being forced to be part of a larger collective, can one fulfill a yearning for an existence free of politics, the news cycle and the imperative of perpetual battle-readiness--without risking the respect of those we love most? A compelling story of an urgent personal quest to reconcile duty, expectations and individual instinct.
