From the internationally best-selling author of Three Floors Up, a literary page-turner that delves into the deepening cracks in a carefully constructed public persona.
A writer tries to answer a set of interview questions. At first, they stick to the standard fare: Did you always know you would be a writer? How autobiographical are your books? Usually his answers in these situations are measured, calculated. But this time, when his heart is about to break and his life is about to crumble, he finds he cannot tell anything but the truth. The naked, funny, sad, scandalous, politically incorrect truth.
Every question the writer tackles opens a door to a hidden room of his life. Surprising, bold, intimate, and utterly engrossing, The Last Interview shows the tenuous lines between work and life, love and hate, fact and fiction. And in exploring the many, often contradictory facets of an Israeli author’s identity, Eshkol Nevo also gives us a nuanced, thought-provoking portrait of a country at odds with itself.
