Aviva-No

Shimon Adaf
Shimon Adaf's third collection of poems is a powerful lament for his
beloved sister. Although it was published after three successful novels,
poetry clearly remains Adaf's most personal language, the most distilled and
the most appropriate for his conflicted soul.


ENGLISH TRANSLATION AVAILABLE (for publishers only).
