This chapter discusses short stories and novels that were all written during a period of bitter debates regarding 1948 and al-Nakba. These works also take into account a series of traumatic events in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: the massive settlement of a Jewish population in the West Bank, often conducted with blind brutality; the first intifada (1987–93); the collapse of the 1993 Oslo Accords; and the second, unprecedentedly violent al-Aqsa intifada (2000–2005). These works include Amos Oz's Tale of Love and Darkness, Yitzchak Laor's Hineh adam, Eshkol Nevo's Homesick, and Alon Hilu's Achuzat Dajani (The House of Rajani).

Keywords:   short stories, novels, Israeli literature, Jewish Israeli writers, al-Nakba, Amos Oz, Yitzchak Laor, Eshkol Nevo, Alon Hilu
