Conference Proceeding: Lost (and Found) in Translation: New Israeli Literature in English

It is an established fact in the literary world that Americans just aren’t that motivated to read fiction in translation. Only three percent of all books published in the United States each year are in translation, but the small number of books being translated from Hebrew has been steadily increasing. Rachel will discuss some of these new books that are now available to those of us who are not quite fluent enough to read them in their original Hebrew, as well as trends in Israeli literature and books written in English by native Hebrew speakers.
