With surprising humor and powerful insight, Ulysses on Bottles tells the story of two unlikely companions who meet in prison: an Israeli-Arab literature teacher nicknamed Ulysses and a successful Israeli-Jewish attorney who takes on his case pro bono.

Evron wrestles with people living in separate realities where a life of privilege is pitted against a life of scarcity, and the story raises profound questions about absolute morality and personal freedom.
