Yitzhak Averbuch Orpaz, winner of the Israel Prize for Literature, “tore the umbilical cord of his soul with his teeth” and immigrated to Israel. His personal life was full of turmoil and he apologizes to his children for his behavior. From Orpaz’s point of view, if he were not a writer he would not be.
