One father. Two brothers. Two great religions. One mutually hallowed patch of ground for centuries both have claimed and called home. Now they bitterly contest. Inexorably, inevitably, where must this seemingly endless tragic circle lead? Part historical, part fictional, The Bomb challenges the reader to walk this long sad mile in the shoes of both sides. The characters are gut wrenchingly real, the events are overwhelmingly tragic, precisely because they are far more historical than they are fictional. Can there ever be peace by any other path, except to admit the humanity of both sides, each finally granting the other this appropriate and proper dignity? In The Bomb, the reader is forced to come face to face with the unspeakable monstrousness of the violence, its very human perpetrators. It refuses to deny the humanity of either side. The Bomb pleads for that far better world we of every race, every nation, every religion, and every ideology hope, dream and yearn, the one that is finally and at long last worthy of our intelligence and moral dignity.
