In the wake of a terrorist attack, Max Benamu manages to escape and takes a car which does not belong to him. He speeds down the road toward the Dead Sea. He crashes into a truck and is mistaken for the owner of the Fiat Punto who perished in the attack. After many months in a coma, he awakens to find he is in a completely different life, perhaps a life he had dreamed, or perhaps he is dreaming now. Suddenly he is freed from an untenable relationship and begins playing the part of someone else. Seemingly everyone knows he is not himself but no one can back off. He begins to spy on his former life and finds everything there goes along better without him. The novel Muriel is a challenge to that which we think of as our inner self, the identity crisis, and the lies of the modern world.
Max becomes another person out of the crisis of his own supposed death and escapes his mediocre and stressful reality to find a new life and a new love, or is it a new life? Is it a paralel life that he has been living in another dimension?
