Description

For Beyond 50's "Literary" talks, listen to an interview with Assaf Gavron. His novel called "The Hilltop" has been hailed as "the great Israeli novel" and is a bestseller in Israel. It's the first book of its kind to grapple with one of the most charged issues in Israeli society - and the world - in recent years: the settlements in the West Bank. Amidst this tense and often absurd landscape, the novel delivers a moving, universal tale of two brothers attempting to rebuild their lives and their relationship. Each of their lives becomes increasingly intertwined with those of the other zany and captivating resident of Ma' aleh Hermech C., whose settlement antagonizes their Palestinian neighbors, brushes up against the Israeli government, becomes the focus of a hothead "Washington Post" correspondent's story, and soon faces existential threats from every side.
