The Boston Book Bums blog has just reviewed The Tel Aviv Dossier:
The book’s strength comes from its unapologetic balance of surrealism and biblical authenticity. While some may get hung up on the weirdly comedic moments juxtaposed by death and revelation, the strangeness is actually magnified by realizing the writing team might be showing us new books of the Bible, but with a dark slap stick touch.
And an interview with Lavie and myself has just been published by SF Signal, celebrating the 2nd edition of the book:
CT: You’re both flexible writers but which format are you most comfortable with? The short story or the novel? What do you think are the strengths of each?
LT: I’m more flexible than Nir because I have less of a body mass. The guy is huge! Did you know he played a monster in a horror movie? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFXQfn47cwU) And that’s not make-up, either!
NY: I only look huge to you, lad, because of my charisma. That’s quite understandable. However, I take pity of you small people – I’m talking here about your mental capacities, of course – so my reign is generous and peaceful.
