AB Yehoshua, one of Israel’s foremost writers and public intellectuals, considers how Jewish culture is now reflected through the prism of contemporary Israeli society. What are the cultural consequences of Israel's recent social and political upheavals?
AB Yehoshua is the recipient of many prizes, including The National Jewish Book Award and was shortlisted for the first ever International Man Booker. Pushkin Children's Books has recently published his critically acclaimed The Story of Crime and Punishment, the retelling of Dostoyevsky's classic.
