On Writing the Fantastic: Part 1

Shimon Adaf and Lavie Tidhar’s new book, Art & War: Poetry, Pulp and Politics in Israeli Fiction, is a dialogue about their approach to writing the fantastic, writing about Israel and Palestine, about Judaism, about the Holocaust, about childhoods and their end.

What is especially exciting is that this book extends the conversation even into their own fiction–and the book ends with two new short stories – Tutim by Tidhar, and Third Attribute by Adaf – in which each appears as a character in the other’s tale.

This week and next, Marcela reads selections from each of their dialogues and then their fiction.
