Erez Maor – Outsider is an episodic novel and each chapter is a self-contained story.
Using first person narration, the book unravels Erez Maor’s life story after his abandonment by his
mother, a young woman of Yemenite descent, and his adoption by an affluent couple of Russian-Polish descent. Erez does not remember his early childhood, but he assumes that he was
adopted because he doesn’t resemble his parents at all.
Despite the deep identity crisis he experienced, he describes most of his childhood and youth in an optimistic tone – as a child and youth he finds escape in books and adventures with his friends.
