Supported by her famous parents – poet Natan Alterman and actress Rachel Marcus – Tirza Atar became, too, a well-known artist in Israel of the 1960s and 70s. She started out as an actress but made her name as a poet, lyricist and the author of children’s books. Her success, beauty and young family, however, were not enough to save her from recurring bouts of depression and a premature death. A Bird in the Room is both a celebration of remarkable creativity and a moving portrayal of a tortured soul.
