On Writing the Fantastic: Part 2

Last week we heard the first part of this two-part podcast featuring Shimon Adaf in his and Lavie Tidhar’s 2016 multigenre collaboration Art & War: Poetry, Pulp and Politics in Israeli Fiction. This week we feature Lavie Tidhar.

The book is a dialogue about Adaf and Tidhar’s 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.
