City of Blok is the sequel to Louvish’s first novel and i. he most clearly focused, primarily because it concen¬trates specifically on the heady years of Israeli nationalism which reached a new peak with the election of Menachem Begin in 1977 and the Lebanon War in 1982. City of Blok is set during these fateful five years and opens with Avram Blok – The Man with No Past – leaving his Jerusalem asylum (his place of refuge in The Therapy of Avram Blok)

This is a satire on modern Israel revealing how the human capacity for survival defies the most absurb challenges. The subject is an amnesiac and non-conscientious objector, Avrom Blok, a man without a past who was released from the State Mental Hospital into a Middle East due to be redeemed by the Camp David Peace Treaty. Riven by social, political and religious schisms, haunted by every step of its history, the city girds itself for a resumption of its millenial agonies. Mad Rabbis, corrupt politicians, trapped dreamers, resurrected historical figures living way past their allotted time, crowd and battle their way through the streets of the capital watched over by the ever present Department of Apocalyptic Affairs. Simon Louvish also wrote "The Therapy of Avrom Blok" and "The Death of Moishe-Ganef".
