Hebrew literature

Last night in the nextbook series:

Meir Shalev - Writer, Novelist - at Henry Gallery. He was marvelous-- funny, sensitive, aware, honest. Interested in audience response. Interacted with audience, not the page. Packed house. I went home knowing myself better. Not everyone who speaks on home and exile can do that for me.

His 6th novel is A Pigeon And A Boy
