An article in NEXOS, one of Mexico most important Magazines:

“While reading Nir Baram I thought of Dostoevsky’s Demons, and how one passes through pages and pages without knowing what is the question of the novel. However, at the end, I discovered to my surprise that there is nothing more fascinating than reflecting on the theme of “Demons”. Something similar happens to me with Nir Baram. I know the comparison is risky… Baram bursts onto the literary scene with novels written in a way that confronts readers with their deeds, novels that engage in dialogue with the narrative of the early and mid-twentieth century while demanding a reflection on the present and future. Two of them, “Good people” and “world Shadow” have captivated the world of literature.

Hanoch Marmari the former editor of Haaretz in an article about World Shadow in’The Seventh Eye Journal’ : “A literary miracle, a novel that builds a glorious floor above the capitalist mall inside which we all lost our way.

Haaretz – Neri Livneh

November 11, 2013EN

The famous and popular columnist of Haaretz Neri Livneh also writes about World shadow: ” This great novel is the only good thing to emerge from the social protest that took place two summers ago…There are three different voices in the book in three completely different styles. There is the voice of the individual, Gavriel Mansour, the tragic hero of the book. Mansour’s voice is heard through the narrator in beautiful Hebrew with a wonderful power of description. The other voices are delivered directly, without the narrator’s mediation. There is the voice of the American campaigners, whose polished, witty and purposeful style is expressed in their email exchanges. The voice of the protesters, who are trying to organize a worldwide strike with one billion participants, is also heard directly.”
