Eshkol Nevo: Three Floors Up

(Fiction, 304pp. Hebrew 2015; English translation 2017)

Three tenants in a suburban Tel Aviv apartment building each tell their stories, and in the process explore the connections between identity, memory and loneliness. The first in an urgent conversation with an old friend, now a writer, in a restaurant; the second in a rambling letter to an old friend now in the U.S.; and the third in short clips to an answering machine.
