Art and War: Poetry, Pulp and Politics in Israeli Fiction

Availability: Ready to download

Shimon Adaf and Lavie Tidhar are two of Israel’s most subversive and politically outspoken writers.  Growing up on opposite sides of the Israeli  spectrum – Tidhar in the north of Israel in the Zion-ist, socialist Kibbutz; Adaf from a family of religious Mizrahi Jews living in Sderot – the two nevertheless shared a love of books, and were especially drawn to the strange vi Shimon Adaf and Lavie Tidhar are two of Israel’s most subversive and politically outspoken writers.  Growing up on opposite sides of the Israeli  spectrum – Tidhar in the north of Israel in the Zion-ist, socialist Kibbutz; Adaf from a family of religious Mizrahi Jews living in Sderot – the two nevertheless shared a love of books, and were especially drawn to the strange visions and outrageous sensibilities of the science fiction that was available in Hebrew. In Art and War, they engage in a dialogue that covers their approach to writing the fantastic, as they question how to write about Israel and Palestine, about Judaism, about the Holocaust, about childhoods and their end. Extending the conversation even into their fiction, the book contains two brand new short stories – Tutim by Tidhar, and Third Attribute by Adaf – in which each appears as a character in the other’s tale; simultaneously political and fantastical, they burn with an angry, despairing intensity.

    He disfrutado mucho este libro. Las reflexiones de Lavie y Shimon sobre la escritura y la vida me han resultado interesantísimas, especialmente los capítulos de Lavie que, por momentos, me han tocado la fibra sensible. Los temas son variados, la escritura, la ciencia ficción, la política, el humor, la infancia en el kibbutz, sus viajes ... y las reflexiones inteligentes y razonadas. No comparto siempre el punto de vista con el autor pero siempre admiro su forma de presentarlo. Muy recomendado par He disfrutado mucho este libro.

Muy recomendado para cualquiera interesado en alguno de los dos autores, en la escritura, en la ciencia ficción y diría que incluso en Israel.

    La parte de las conversaciones MUY interesante. En cuanto a los relatos, el de Tidhar normalito y el de Adaf no lo he llegado a acabar porque no me estaba entreando (y porque no me estaba enterando de nada). Francamente recomendable por la primera parte, que es el grueso del libro.
