For this installment in our book series we will have a conversation on “Beaufort,” by Ron Leshem and translated by Evan Fallenberg. Here is what Goodreads says about the book— “By turns subversive and darkly comic, brutal and tender, Ron Leshem’s debut novel is an international literary sensation, winner of Israel’s top award for literature and the basis for a prizewinning film. Charged with brilliance and daring, hypnotic in its intensity, Beaufort is at once a searing coming-of-age story and a novel for our times. One of the most powerful, visceral portraits of the horror, camaraderie, and absurdity of war in modern fiction.”
