Assaf Inbari (Hebrew: אסף ענברי‬) (born 1968) is an Israeli novelist and journalist. He teaches at Kinneret College and Alma College in Tel Aviv.


Assaf Inbari was born and raised on Kibbutz Afikim,[1] the oldest of three children, and lived there until the age of 20.[2] He studied Hebrew and comparative literature at Tel Aviv and Bar-Ilan Universities and completed his Ph.D. on the poetry of [[Hayim Nahman Bialik] in 2008.[2]

In 2005, he married Naomi; the couple has one son and one daughter. He lives on Kibbutz Degania B.

Literary career[edit]

In 2009 he published his first novel Home (Hebrew: הביתה‬). It relates the history of Afikim over three generations, from its founding in the Jordan Valley in the early 1930s by members of the socialistZionist youth movement Hashomer Hatzair, through its growth and development, to its present form, beset by privatization and individualism.[3] The novel was awarded the 2010 Israel Book Publishers Association's Platinum Prize[4] and was on the shortlist of finalists for the Sapir Prize for Literature.[5]
