I am convinced that he is one of the masters of contemporary fiction. There is his inordinate technical skill, fecundity of incident and character, and overall intensity.
The problems posed by Yoram Kaniuk go to the heart of modern man's deepest longings and emotional needs. His keen vision is unhesitatingly centered on what history may regard as the most characteristic experience of our unfortunate age, and this is true of few writers today. He is an enormous talent, both as an artificer of plot and as a virtuoso of language.
About the Author

Filled with gratuitous name dropping and badly manufactured stereotypes, Life on Sandpaper seems to be just another bad novel that has nothing at all to do with what really happened in intersubjective reality. But, nevertheless, its fabulist protagonist/author remains a hero in his own mind.
