Sayed Kashua

Kashua was born in 1975 and attended the prestigious Israel Arts and Science Academy boarding school in Jerusalem. Israel’s most well-known Arab author, Kashua writes predominantly in Hebrew. His works explore themes of living between two worlds and feelings of being an outsider in Israeli society. Perhaps his most well-known work is the semi-autobographical television program Avaodah Aravi (Arab Labor) which ran from 2007 to 2012.
