Israeli satirist I’ve never heard of dies at 80

This post was written by guest blogger Dennis DiClaudio.

So, there was a Hungarian holocaust survivor named Ephraim Kishon who wrote brilliant social satire, targeted mainly at his home state of Israel, and he died the other day.

What the fuck?! How have I never heard of him? He’s supposedly, like, the best Israeli writer ever.

This kind of thing drives me nuts.
