"I read the book with wonder and emotion. The love between Michaela and Rivi is depicted precisely and delicately. . . . It's beautiful." -- Amos Oz

"More than anything else, the book is a temple of love to the imaginary, and to literature as an option for deep and vigorous living." -- Time Out

Written by best-selling Israeli author Judith Katzir, Dearest Anne is a stirring record of an artist's coming-of-age during the 1970s and the story of a hidden, erotic love affair between a teenaged girl and her married teacher, Michaela.

After reading Anne Frank's diary, young Rivi starts a series of writing notebooks that document the angst of growing up in rural Israel. The entries reveal how her crush on her literature teacher develops into a poignant and turbulent love affair that lasts for years before its scandalous end. Decades later, the grown Rivi, now a mother, wife, and established author, comes to terms with the forbidden love that shaped her life.
