The story of A.B. Yehoshua, perhaps the greatest Israeli writer living today, who is dealing with a terminal illness, widowhood, and loneliness, but does not for one moment give up his joi de vivre, faces death with unflinching honesty, and still embraces a new book. A rare and fascinating look at one of Israel’s most beloved writers.
