Join author Eshkol Nevo as he presents his book The Last Interview: A Novel


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 sent to him by a website editor. At first, they stick to the standard fare: Did you always know you would be a writer? How autobiographical are your books? Have you written any stories you would never publish? Usually his answers in these situations are measured, calculated, cautious. 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. Each of his answers reveals that at the heart of every truth there is a lie–and vice versa. Surprising, bold, intimate, and utterly engrossing, The Last Interview shows just how tenuous the lines are 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.


Eshkol Nevo is one of Israel’s most successful living writers, whose novels have all been bestsellers in Israel and published widely in translation. Nevo grew up in JerusalemHaifa, and Detroit. He is the grandson of Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, for whom he was named.

He teaches creative writing and thinking at the Bezalel Academy of Art and DesignTel Aviv University, Sapir College and the Open University of Israel.
