Eshkol Nevo is one of Israel’s most exciting new voices. He studied copywriting and psychology and both disciplines inform his work. He writes short stories, has published a nonﬁction book called The Breaking Up Manual, and two novels, World Cup Wishes and most recently, Homesick. Since 2008, he has been the chosen artist of Israel’s Cultural Excellence Foundation—one of Israel’s highest recognitions for excellence in the arts. He joins 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.
