Assaf Inbari Wikipedia
Assaf Inbari (Hebrew: אסף ענברי) (born 1968) is an Israeli writer, novelist and journalist. He currently teaches at Kinneret College and Alma College in Tel Aviv.
Inbari was born and raised on Kibbutz Afikim, the oldest of three children, and lived there until the age of 20. He studied Hebrew and comparative literature at Tel Aviv and Bar-Ilan Universities and completed his Ph.D. on the poetry of Hayam Bialik in 2008.
In 2005, he married his wife Naomi; the couple has one son and one daughter. He lives on Kibbutz Degania B (although not a member).
Inbari writes extensively for the Hebrew press and has published essays and short stories in a variety of journals.
In 2009 he published his first novel Home (Hebrew: הביתה). It relates the history of Afikim over three generations, from its founding in the Jordan Valley in the early 1930s by members of the socialist–Zionist youth movement Hashomer Hatzair, through its growth and development, to its present form, beset by privatization and individualism. The novel was awarded the 2010 Israel Book Publishers Association's Platinum Prize and was on the shortlist of finalists for the Sapir Prize for Literature.
