An Acclaimed Israeli Novelist Calls for a Moral Revolution

Nir Baram, whose new novel, ‘At Night’s End,’ is his most personal work yet, talks about the death of his mother and the suicide of his best friend, and what he has learned from interviewing settlers and Palestinians

At the age of 42, Nir Baram has already achieved the status of a leading Israeli writer. He is exceptional in the breadth and complex structure of his novels, whose plots unfold in different time dimensions, are mediated by means of multiple narrators and address political, moral and social issues.

Baram’s new Hebrew-language novel, “Yekitzah” (English title: “At Night’s End”; Am Oved Publishers), is his first personal work of fiction. It was preceded by “The Remaker of Dreams” (2006), “Good People” (2010) and “World Shadow” (2013). With their panoplies of characters, diverse locales and range of periods, those three novels recall Russian novels or other classical works, though with the addition of Baram’s distinctive style, rife with descriptions and metaphors….

“I am so excited to hold this wonderful novel. while reading it I realized that this time you have put your heart in amongst the lines.

“One of the best coming of age novels I have ever read. A beautiful novel that describes the journey of a boy into adolescence in the midst of life’s turmoil – with the threatening progress of his mother’s disease, his longing for his estranged brother and his busy father, and above all his friendship with his best friend from childhood until they are both grown men.”

“At Nights End by Nir Baram deals with the inability to talk, an inability that is often the creator of literature. The novel deals with living in the imagination and with the painful awakening which is a crucial part of growing up. The other option is not to live. Reading this novel is like participating in a boxing match in which the hero and the reader are trying to escape the claws of the past and find a meaning in everyday life. Truthfully, it’s not easy to box while trying to live. Probably Baram’s best novel”
