The PEN World Voices Festival, Center for Jewish History and the Consulate General of Israel present Eshkol Nevo, one of Israel's most exciting new voices. Like many other successful writers before him, he studied copywriting, but then went on to psychology and both disciplines inform his work. He writes short stories, has also penned a non-fiction book called The Breaking Up Manual, and two novels, Homesick and World Cup Wishes. He has been the chosen artist of Israel's Cultural Excellence Foundation--one of Israel's highest recognitions for excellence in the arts--since 2008. He will be joined by Michael Orthofer, managing editor at the Complete Review and its Literary Saloon for a discussion about art, home, living under threat, and, of course, the art of breaking up.
Tickets: $15 general, $10 PEN, CJH members. Order at www.smarttix.com or 212-868-4444.
