13.11.2015 - A.B. Yehoshua

The Faulkner of Israel, as Abraham B. Yehoshua (1936) has also been called. With 11 books, translated into 30 languages, Yehoshua is one of Israel’s most important contemporary authors. He is known not to eschew controversial topics, a committed author for whom everything, as he himself puts it, ‘perfocibly revolves around the fundamental questions about life and death’.

At Crossing Border he will talk about his latest book The Retrospective. Yair Moses, an aging movie director, has been invited to attend a retrospective of his early works in Santiago de Compostela. The story that unfolds revolves around maybe one of man’s most typical characteristics: his ability to show mercy and compassion.

A.B. Yehoshua will be interviewed by Michel Krielaars
