Chochana Boukhobza

Chochana Boukhobza at King's Place as part of Jewish Book Week

22/02/2012 from 13:00 to 14:30

During Jewish Book Week, Chochana Boukhobza will be at the French Institute to talk about her moving novel,The Third Day.

The Book

In The Third Day, two cellists travel to Jerusalem for a concert. For Elisheva, this is above all an appointment with her past and the nightmares of the camps; for Rachel, her gifted pupil, the return home forces her to face the difficult choices she has made.

Boukhobza talks about her gripping thriller set in the late 1980s, in a rich multicultural Israel fraught with tension.


The Author

Chochana Boukhobza was born in Tunisia, emigrating to Israel at the age of 17, before moving to France. Her first novel A Summer in Jerusalem won the Prix Mediterranée; and she was a finalist for the 1987 Prix Femina. She also writes screenplays.
