Award-winning author Ayelet Gundar-Goshen joins HBI director Lisa Fishbayn Joffe in conversation about “The Wolf Hunt,” a head-on collision between the American dream and the Jewish longing for the promised land as the reality of racial tensions threatens to boil over. While the novel explores the burning questions of Jewish and Israeli identity, it is also a piercing psychological portrait of the relationship between parents and their children, a story about a mother forced to take on the role of a detective in search of a truth that might destroy her.

A clinical psychologist and author, Ayelet Gundar-Goshen’s first novel, “One Night, Markovitch,” won the Sapir Prize in 2012 for debut novels, the Italian Adei-Wizo Prize and the French Adei-Wizo Prize, and has been translated to 14 languages. Gundar-Goshen’s second novel, “Waking Lions,” won the 2017 Jewish Quarterly-Wingate Prize. The New York Times Book Review picked “Waking Lions” as “Editors’ Choice” and The Wall Street Journal selected it for its “Best Summer Reads” list. Her critically acclaimed third novel, “The Liar,” was published in English in 2019.

“The Wolf Hunt” is available at Amazon, Bookshop and your local bookseller. Please note: The recording of this event will be shared with registrants after the event for two weeks only. It will not be available to view on the HBI website.
