CrocAttack!

Assaf Gavron

We met with one of Israel’s most exciting young writers who was translated in English and discovered a gripping, novel that explores the minds of both serial terrorist victim and suicide bomber. Politically incorrect, provocative, steeped in wit and irony,  this is a fast-paced tragicomic novel about the perfectly ordinary madness that resides within the Middle East.

"Blasts right through the cliches and the politically correct surface to touch teh chaotic and ambiguous core of the Israeli identity." Etgar Keret

Assaf Gavron is a musician, translator, editor, fast food commentator and captain of the Israeli Writers' Soccer Team.
