Israeli culture's top ten || Israeli literature's No. 1: Prof. Menachem Perry
Professor Menachem Perry, 70, Scholar, editor and publisher.
Professor Menachem Perry is the great patriarch of literature in Israel. Not for nothing does he arouse a good deal of antagonism; after all, patricide is a part of the culture. He is extremely knowledgeable, with distinct tastes and firm views in a world that has a hard time both expressing such things and being able to choose.
