Eshkol Nevo Neuland
The wandering Jew has become the wandering Israeli, backpacking in far-flung places in search of meaning and identity. Neuland, an epic new work by feted Israeli novelist Eshkol Nevo, tells twin stories of those who found refuge in the newly established Israeli state and their offspring 60 years on who are starting afresh – yet again – elsewhere.
