The selection for July 18, 2019 is a novel:
Orly Castel-Bloom “An Egyptian Novel”
In 2015, Castel-Bloom won Israel’s highest literary award—the Sapir Prize—for her latest novel, “An Egyptian Novel.” Released in an English translation last month (translated by Todd Hasak-Lowy), English readers can finally delight in the tales of an Egyptian-Jewish family throughout generations. Castel-Bloom, currently a creative writing professor at Tel Aviv University, has written 11 books in the last three decades; only four are available in English. “Dolly City” (translated by Dalya Bilu), her most famous novel, is considered one of the most important works of postmodern Hebrew literature.
