With a string of international literary awards and bestselling novels to his credit, Assaf Gavron has earned his place as a foremost Israeli author under 50. In his most recent successes The Hilltop and Tel Aviv Noir, Gavron portrays an unvarnished, authentic Israeli society. “His clear and honest writing blasts right through the clichés and the politically correct surface to touch the chaotic, ambiguous core of the Israeli identity.” (Etgar Keret). Gavron will join us for three exclusive Canadian appearances.
