7 Israeli expat writers to watch

Israelis get around the globe, as anyone who has traveled to Thailand, Goa or Patagonia knows. Writers, too, are known for living outside the lands of their birth – Czech-born Milan Kundera lives in Paris and writes in French; Jhumpa Lahiri moved to Rome in 2012 and wrote her first book in Italian earlier this year and last year Arab-Israeli writer Sayed Kashua decamped to Champaign, Illinois, and continues to write in his adopted tongue, Hebrew.

So perhaps it comes as no surprise that there’s no shortage of Israeli writers who have made their homes in various corners of the world. Some have adopted the language of their resident country and choose to write in it; others continue to write in Hebrew.
