A TABLE FOR ONE is set in the intimate Jerusalem cafes of the 1950s and 1960s, where the scent of the fresh roasted coffee and cigarette smoke wafted in with the elan of a lost European culture. Appelfeld found that it was only in a cafe - and only in a Jerusalem cafe - that he could write his novels, shaping meaning and wholeness out of the fragments of his painful past. A TABLE FOR ONE is an interchange between one artist and another, father and son, about their city, Jerusalem. It brings together an unknown side of Aharon Appelfeld's writing, with the subtle, haunting paintings of his son, Meir Appelfeld, who studied fine art at the Royal Academy of Art, London, and exhibits widely.
