About the author (1975)

Born in Kiev, Russia, Haim Hazaz moved to Palestine in 1921. His early works are based on themes of village life among European Jews during crucial changes that uprooted Jewish life. However, he is not restricted in era or location in his writings. His fiction encompasses wide geographic, historic, and ethnographic variations, from stories on the biblical period to works dealing with Yemenite and other Jewish settlers who came to Israel from Europe and non-European countries. Hazaz is ranked among the greatest Hebrew authors. He was awarded the Israel Prize for Literature in 1953.
