Between the backpack and the tent: Home, Zionism, and a new generation in Eshkol Nevo’s novels Homesick and Neuland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The relationship between travel and home are given new life in the novels of Eshkol Nevo. Framing the contemporary reality in narratives that explore Zionism, travel, and social activism, Nevo offers a conception of the new generation of Israeli writers torn between an Israeli identity, with its increasingly inclusive and polyethnic state, and a Jewish identity with its diasporic roots.
