“This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.”
My name is Roy Isacowitz and I am a retired journalist, a writer and a blogger. Born in South Africa, I have lived in Israel for most of my adult life. I currently reside in Tel Aviv, where I write books and hide from the babble.
My recently published biography of my father, “Telling People What They Don’t Want to Hear: A Liberal Life Under Apartheid,” is available on Amazon.
Also available there is my collection of short stories, “The Ingathering of the Exiles: The Adventures of Remarkable Jews in Contemporary Israel”.
My blog, The Kibbitzer is a whimper; a forlorn attempt to get in the last word while all around fascists and madmen are banging away.
It is seriously-intended satire, based on current news in or about Israel and its totalitarian fantasies. If you can’t take a joke, particularly a joke about Israel, I’m sure there are other blogs that will make you happy.
For those unfortunate enough not to have had Yiddish-speaking grandparents, a kibbitzer is a backseat driver – a person who talks a lot and complains a lot but doesn’t actually do much.
