OPENING NIGHT - ESHKOL NEVO
From the internationally best-selling author of Three Floors Up,
a literary page-turner that delves into the deepening cracks in a
carefully constructed public persona.
A writer starts to answer a set of interview questions sent by a
website editor. At first, they are standard fare: Did you always
know you would be a writer? How autobiographical are your
books? Usually his answers are measured, calculated, cautious.
But this time, when his heart is about to break and his life is
about to crumble, he finds he cannot tell anything but the
truth. The naked, funny, sad, scandalous, politically incorrect
Every question he tackles opens a door to a hidden room of his
life. Each of his answers reveals that at the heart of every truth
there is a lie and vice versa. Surprising, bold, intimate, and
utterly engrossing, The Last Interview shows just how tenuous
the lines are between work and life; love and hate; fact and
fiction. And in exploring the many, often contradictory facets of
an Israeli authors identity, Eshkol Nevo also gives us a nuanced,
thought-provoking portrait of a country at odds with itself.
ESHKOL NEVO is one of Israels most successful living writers,
whose novels have been local bestsellers and widely translated.
Nevo grew up in Jerusalem, Haifa, and Detroit. He teaches
creative writing and thinking at the Bezalel Academy of Art and
Design, Tel Aviv University and Sapir College.
