Book of the Lunch

Monday, May 7th, 12:00 p.m. (Pulka Room).
Rita Jacobs reviews and discusses Three Floors Up by Eshkol Nevo. Behind the cold, steel-reinforced doors that separate the living spaces in an Israeli apartment high-rise, three loosely-connected first-person confessional narratives unfold. Collectively, the novella-length chapters offer a compelling critique of Israeli society. But Nevo’s chief strength lies in his ability to fashion wonderfully-relatable characters whose troubled voices, as well as mysterious and impulsive moods, render the work a page-turner.
