Assaf Gavron

Of Gavron's sixth novel, The Hilltop, published this year in English, Amos Oz wrote the work "shimmers with wisdom, truth, humour and melancholy." The New York Times called it "structurally brilliant." One of Gavron's novels was adapted for stage by Habima, Israel's national theater and others have been optioned for film and television. His English to Hebrew translations of J.D. Salinger, Phillip Roth, and Jonathan Safran Foer are highly regarded. (Photo by Fana Feng)
