Death of a Donkey

Yoram Kaniuk
Kaniuk wrote the stories collected in this book over a period of 12 years: from 1961-1973. Some are set in the United States, where Kaniuk worked for 10 years as a painter, a barman, a waiter in restaurants; others are set in Israel, after his return in 1958. Written in Kaniuk's inimitable style, they reflect a very unique viewpoint - sometimes emotional with subtle humor, at others with longing and compassion. What all these stories have in common is the loneliness of people living in a big city, the need for human company, and nostalgia for his youth.
