Hezy Leskly (1952-1994) was born in Rehovot, Israel, the only son of Czech parents. After leaving high school without graduating he went on to study photography and dance. He began writing at the age of fourteen and published his first poems four years later. At 22 he settled in Holland, where for seven years he studied multi-media at the Open Academy of Art in The Hague. In 1980 he returned to Israel and worked for the next ten years as dance critic for a Tel Aviv weekly. He created several performances and choreographed several dances. His last book was published posthumously.
