Israeli Novel of Ideas Overpowers Story

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/arts/article/israeli_novel_of_ideas_overpowers_story_20040102

Can a work of fiction be important without being successful? If so, it would look pretty much like "Foiglman," by the distinguished Israeli author, Aharon Megged. "Foiglman" was originally published in Israel in 1988 and is being issued here for the first time in English by Toby Press, a Connecticut-based firm with an active editorial office in Jerusalem that has been busily acquiring backlists of leading Israeli writers. Megged's book is a novel of ideas in which ideas completely overpower the novel itself.
