Native gathers together for the first time a selection of personal essays, first published by Haaretz between 2006 and 2014, exploring questions of identity, cultural divides and the deeply-rooted complexities of a tragic conflict, alongside witty and intimate depictions from his personal life as both a father and husband. Kashua writes with poignancy and candour about his children’s upbringing and encounters with racism, as well as the rising social and political tensions that led him to emigrate from Jeruslaem to the US in 2014.
