A wealthy Israeli family is at a precipice in their lives in this nuanced, contemporary novel. As Amanda Gruber, the matriarch of the family, undergoes an invasive cosmetic procedure, Lirit, her rebellious daughter, takes over operations at the family's pajama factory. Her brother Dael serves in the Israeli Army as a sniper, while Irad, their neglectful father, a genius scientist, travels to the United States to conduct research on flak jackets. Textile details the gradual disintegration of a family strained by distance and the corrosive effects of militarism and consumerism.

Boring. May interest those readers more familiar with Israeli culture and Tel Aviv landmarks.
