master novelist A.B. Yehoshua’s most recent book, The Retrospective
(published in Israel in 2011), Yair Moses, an aging Israeli film
director, arrives in the holy city of Santiago de Compostela for a
retrospective of his earliest work. A rotation of Spanish monks, film
connoisseurs, and his frequent and troubled star, Ruth, accompanies him.
But on Moses's mind is the bad blood between him and his estranged
screenwriter, with whom he collaborated on the honored films, and an
unusual painting hanging in his hotel room.
