Shani Boianjiu’s debut novel is a disconcerting and often surreal coming of age story set in the Israeli army. Written by a 25-year old Israeli dubbed as a hot new literary talent, it introduces three girl friends conscripted into endless boredom and danger, entering adulthood with guns. Boianjiu came to Jewish Book Week for the UK launch of The People of Forever are Not Afraid.
