Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "The manuscript was read and reviewed by me and other editorial staff. Everyone found it to be a beautiful and touching poem, written with impressive talent and restraint." - Noa Manheim, Head of the Original Literature Section, published by Kinneret, Zmora-Bitan, Dvir
  •  "Sarit Brik's debut book, Serenity Boat, offers an unmediated reading experience that takes the reader, gently yet purposefully, into the most personal and private places in the writer's soul, which are to be found in the souls of all of us, the readers. Sarit Brik dares to weave here, in a surprisingly mature debut piece, a delicate creation, but at the same time full of power, pain and experience. A piece of work that is not afraid to look directly at the questions found at the heart of every person's being, poignant questions about love, family, friendship, compassion, and the tortuous paths of the heart and mind, all from a unique, subtle, refined, yet controlled, compassionate and loving perspective. One that knows how to ferry even the most difficult attempts on a boat of serenity, towards the personal growth, beauty and light on the opposite bank." Tamar Bialik, Editor of the book, Head of the Reading Department and Editor-in-Chief of Kinneret-Zmora, Bitan
  • "At the age of fifty, Sarit Brik decided to revisit the open wound of her life: the suicide of her father, Israel Railways CEO Ehud Hadar. That is how her debut novel Serenity Boat was born, from whose pages flows the special connection she enjoyed with her father." From the Culture Supplement of the Makor Rishon newspaper, by Keren Melamed Margalit
  • "Sarit Brik, whose father committed suicide while serving as the CEO of Israel Railways, wrote an autobiography to tell her children about the darker parts of her life." From La-Isha, a weekly magazine for women, by Orit Merlin-Rosenzweig

From the Author

I've always loved to write, but I really only started after my dad's suicide. For years I wrote for myself, for the drawer, as they say, out of necessity, like an inner voice I had to make heard in order to save myself from going insane. A kind of therapy, thanks to which I was able to deal with the pain. Then, two years before my fiftieth birthday, I realized it was time to edit my manuscripts into a book, otherwise it would be too late, and in my own obsessive way I did so. I worked feverishly twenty-four hours a day, almost without sleep. It caught me like a virus and would not let go. The time elapsed since the events allowed me to reach layers that I could not have gotten into before. My mind was at work all the time. Pictures and words ran through my head even before they were transcribed. The words were being pronounced inside me even before being written down. They were with me in the shower, in bed, while driving, everywhere. Then there were the endless hours in the study room where I turned the words around and around, trying to convey the images, the essence of the emotions, distilled, constrained and without mannerisms. A plethora of emotions, stories, associations, memories, and yearning.
