Israeli crime fiction that Noir offerings. The genre is hot, Tel Aviv is exotic, and this volume is outstanding" ( Library Journal , starred review).

Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched with the summer '04 award-winning bestseller Brooklyn Noir . Each book is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the respective city. For Tel Aviv Noir , Etgar Keret and Assaf Gavron have masterfully assembled some of Israel's top contemporary writers into a compulsively readable collection.

Along with Gon Ben Ari's story "Clear Recent History"-- winner of the Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Award for Best P.I. Short Story --this anthology includes brand-new stories by: Etgar Keret, Gadi Taub, Lavie Tidhar, Deakla Keydar, Matan Hermoni, Julia Fermentto, Shimon Adaf, Alex Epstein, Antonio Ungar, Gai Ad, Assaf Gavron, Silje Bekeng, and Yoav Katz; translated by Yardenne Greenspan.

Jewish Journal 's Noteworthy Books for the New Year

"There's a marvelous underlying tension to [the stories], a paranoid tinge, as if some vast monstrous conspiracy is lurking behind every misdeed and bad stroke of luck."-- San Francisco Book Review

"The collection reflects much of the daily reality of the city, but not the sort one is likely to read in tour guides . . . There's a complexity and virtuosity to plot and prose that leaves the reader with a sense of satisfaction and appreciation, despite the typically devastating denouement of the tales . . . Superb."--PopMatters

"Consistently strong . . . Definitely one of the highlights in the long-running Akashic series."--
