I wrote my first tome, "Requesting My Loved One" in jail:
It was a voyage of painful self discovery. The stranger I saw in my mirror stared back and hard.
"Requesting My Loved One" and "Malignant Self Love" are twins. In the latter I generalized and non-fictionalized the former.
I won the 1997 New Prose Award of the Israeli Ministry of Education and Culture.
I thought it was ironic: a prisoner, writing about an amoral world through his own disintegration - and the Ministry of Education and Culture.
This is a new collection of short fiction. I cannot publish it in Israel because I had to leave it, exiled by my own profligacy.
The stories are copyrighted by me. Feel free to copy them, distribute them by any means, including electronic means - providing you give me due credit (simply add: Author - Shmuel Vaknin).
