The Monkey

The Monkey by Boaz Izraeli

There is no Israeli short story writer, or simply no Israeli writer, who knows how to imagine extreme situations like Boaz Yzraeli; situations that supposedly diverge from the web of social and realistic conventions yet actually express this web in the most clear-cut manner through contrapositive means, or doubt, or failed attempts to hold on to the web or what it seems to be, and imagine these situations, as baseless as they are fundamental, with detail, precision and especially impeccable logic.
