This week the Knesset gave preliminary approval to a bill that would criminalize saying “Nazi” under inappropriate circumstances. ... Many Israelis think that passing a law against a word is stupid and juvenile; others see it as fascist and anti-democratic. ... I wouldn’t be surprised if someone tried to outlaw those words in the future, too.— New York Times
A conversation is like a tunnel dug under the prison floor that you patiently and painstakingly scoop out with a spoon. It has one purpose: to get you away from where you are right now. And when you dig yourself a tunnel, there’s always a target on the other side: empathy that will lead to a fuck; male intimacy that will mix most excellently with a bottle of whiskey; something that will reestablish your great value as a tenant to the landlord who’s come to raise the rent.— "Car Concentrate"
"In a year that saw Alice Munro garner the ultimate accolade from the Swedish Academy, it was fitting that short stories got another high-profile salute in the form of Lynn Coady's Giller win for her collection Hellgoing. Dip into Wireless, about the travails of a hard-drinking travel writer, and see if you don't find yourself devouring the rest in one sitting. Elsewhere on the story front, my big discovery of the year was the Israeli backpackers' favourite Etgar Keret, whose Suddenly, a Knock at the Door - technically not a 2013 title, but widely available in Canada for the first time - is an ideal introduction to his less-is-more modern fable style."— Highlights from a year in literature, Ian McGillis

I think, traditionally, Israeli writers tell the story of the group, of the collective. You have the kibbutz stories, the army stories -- basically [you] take these people who come from different countries and try to create a whole out of them. In that sense, when I started writing, I felt that there was a kind of resentment from [the] older generation of readers and writers. Like, 'We're trying to put something together and you're working against us."-- Interview with HuffPo's Tom Teicholz
