Born in the land of Israel between 1930 and 1954, these four authors are considered the most important and representative Israeli writers of the end of the century.
AMOS OZ (1939)
Is the most controversial Israeli novelist: at home he is vastly appreciated and, at the same time, severely criticised. His ability to investigate human emotions and sentimental relationships is acute and of unparalleled talent.
DAVID GROSSMAN (1954)
In a tense and intense portrait, develops a profound personal inquiry, that little by little becomes a very moving public confession (the first Grossman ever delivers in a television program). The deep, yet critical love he has for his land leads him to question its future.
YORAM KANIUK (1930)
Is the oldest, yet the less recognised - at least at home - of the four novelists. He is, in fact, a very uncommon personality. He was a soldier, a dish washer, a barman, a painter around half of the world.
ABRAHAM B. YEHOSHUA (1936)
An oriental Jew with an explosive Mediterranean personality, is probably the best known Israeli author around Europe and the world.
