Meet the Author: Kfir was born and raised in Italy, and moved to Israel as a teenager. He acquired the love for the English language from his father, a former U.S. soldier and WWII veteran, a voracious reader and a prolific writer. With a PhD in chemical engineering and a long family history that he needs to live up to, Kfir work as a patent attorney and heads the patent law firm that was established by his great-grandfather in Milan, Italy, in 1869. Kfir lives in Omer, Israel, with his full-time partner, Esther, their four children, Michal, Lilach, Tamar and Yonatan, and the dog Elvis. Writing has always been Kfir’s passion and for almost four years he wrote a weekly “Patents” column in Globes (Israel’s financial newspaper), which also yielded his only (if he can help it) non-fiction book, THE WORLD OF PATENTS, (a not-so-boring tale of what patents are about, in Hebrew), which was published in 2002 by Globes Press. Kfir loves writing short stories but has too many novels waiting to be written (and possibly not enough years ahead of him to write them all), so now he mostly writes full-length fiction. His other passion is working with other authors on stories he loves and that’s how he wound up serving on the editorial board of The Harrow Press as Anthology Editor. You can read about Kfir’s books here. He loves them all, but never had greater fun than when working on “HAVE BOOK WILL TRAVEL”, a YA fantasy that he wrote together with his son, Yonatan.

The story takes place in the 1970’s Italy. This book is about Roberto and his life. At times I felt bad for Roberto, then there were times I was shocked/disgusted by his actions. I feel that an event in Roberto’s life as a teenager has shaped his life forever. We learn about a event in the book. I think that has left a lot of damage to his mind/emotions. Alessandra is someone that Roberto has always had feelings for starting in elementary school into adulthood. In his eyes, she is perfect. Is it healthy to put somone on a pedastool in this way? This book stays with you and makes you question how you would react to different situations that are portrayed. I love the writing style of the author. It’s very easy to read and get sucked into the story very easily. I give this book a 5 out of 5.
