Reviews

"It's hard not to be completely swept away by World Cup Wishes... very readable and eloquent, but above all it is moving" -- Liran Danash * Maxim * "[Nevo] has an astute sense of drama and an ability to shape well-rounded characters...He has all the skills needed to fill a significant role in Israeli literature" -- Omri Herzog * Haaretz * "It brings tender emotional savvy to bear on the question of whether friendships - particularly those tight, testy bonds between groups of men - help people to grow as individuals or, in fact, hold us back" * Daily Mail * "What started as a realistic novel about everyday life in Israel evolves into a story about storytelling. In doing so, it confirms Nevo as one of the best young Israeli writers today" * Jewish Chronicle *
