'In this ambitious new study, Dvir Abramovich takes for his subject hitherto marginalized but certainly not marginal works of recent Israeli fiction, and makes not only the works themselves but the cultural context in which they appeared interesting and accessible to the general reader. What is fascinating in his approach is how Abramovich traces the acceptance of such disparate ethnic and genre fictions into mainstream modern Hebrew literature back to historical events and social phenomena in the early years of Israeli statehood. ... The aim of Abramovich s excellent study is to highlight the social context as well as the artistic achievement of these voices of recent Israeli fiction, and to make those insights available to English-language readers."(Provided by publisher).
"This book provides a wide-ranging survey of a large number of Israeli novels and short stories written in the 1980s and 1990s and brings together a range of fresh critical perspectives that will benefit teachers and students of Hebrew literature and fans of literature in general.
