It is widely accepted that the short story is the most difficult genre in fiction because it is so condensed. This anthology includes 50 short stories from modern Hebrew literature covering the first half-century as Israel`s existence as a modern state. They are the product of three literary periods: the Palmach Generation, the State Generation, and the Generation of the 90`s, which includes some postmodernist writers. Israel has a rich tradition of storytelling and storytellers. The works included here reflect a broad spectrum of styles and subjects in order to acquaint the reader with Israel`s best short-story writers.
