Miryam Sivan is a writer and lecturer of English Literature at the University of Haifa in Israel. She is a former New Yorker who has lived in Israel for twenty years. Much of her fiction is about the experiences of ex-pats in love, in flux, in the liminal space between cultures, languages, and historical epochs. In addition to numerous scholarly publications and a book-length translation of Leah Goldberg’s poems, many of her stories have appeared in Lilith, Arts and Letters, Wasafiri, Jewish Quarterly, and other publications. A collection of short stories, SNAFU and Other Stories, was published in 2014. Her novel, Make it Concrete, will be published in the spring of 2017.
