Booknik's Review

Прикажите мне долго жить!

Пятидесятидвухлетний Рафаэль Майер, старейший из мужчин династии, рассказывает о себе и своей неординарной семье. Любовь и ненависть к родным не дают ему покоя, и единственным выходом для него становится жизнь в одиночестве вдалеке от семьи. Вопреки всеобщим ожиданиям и семейным легендам, он пережил всех мужчин династии — деда, дядек, отца, чью неестественную смерть ускорили обстоятельства. Теперь Рафаэль живет на пустынном юге Израиля вдалеке от своей матриархальной семьи и вспоминает детство.
