    DescriptionGabriel Josipovici's stories play hide and seek with the reader. Whether they take place in a seedy London nightclub in the sixties, in a brothel in Hamburg during the First World War, in the fevered world of Shakespeare's mind as he writes Twelfth Night or in that of the dying Borges as he dreams of Finland and the Kalevala, in an airport outside Berlin, in Bukovina in 1942...one thing is certain: you are never quite where you think you are and what is happening is never quite what you think is happening. No matter how short the story - and many are no more than two or three pages long - by the time you have finished reading you will have travelled an unimaginable distance, and will never be quite the same again. Heart's Wings gathers twenty-three stories written over the last fifteen years.

He read English at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, graduating with a First in 1961. From 1963 to 1996 he taught at the University of Sussex, where he is now Research Professor in the Graduate School of Humanities.

His plays have been performed throughout Britain and on radio in Britain, France and Germany, and his work has been translated into the major European languages and Arabic. In 2001 he published A Life, a biographical memoir of his mother, the translator and poet Sacha Rabinovitch (London Magazine editions).
    Review quote
    The mysteries of Gabriel Josipovici's brief, elliptical forms embody a disquieting and moving sensibility that rewards patient rereading Times Literary Supplement Josipovici is one of the best living writers in English Robert Nye, The Guardian
