Israeli writer and philosopher Yaniv Iczkovits talks about his Sunday Times ‘Must Read’ and Agnon Prize-winning novel.

Described by Gary Shteyngart as a “story of great beauty and surprise”, and translated from the Hebrew by Orr Scharf, The Slaughterman’s Daughter takes place in the 19th-century Russian Pale of Settlement, and centres around the mysterious disappearance of devoted wife and mother Fanny Keismann.

Interviewed by Rebecca Abrams, an award-winning author and journalist and regular reviewer for the Financial Times.
