In June of 2011 Florida-based publisher Aqueous Books will release its second 2011 publication, "The Other Shore" by critically-acclaimed Israeli editor Fred Skolnik. His first published novel, the book is set in Israel in the 1980’s during a pivotal time in Israel’s development into a consumer society.

"The Other Shore" is set during the period between the Lebanese War and the outbreak of the first Intifada (1984-1989), a pivotal time which saw the final transition of Israel from a Zionist-socialist society to a Western-style consumer society. The novel follows the lives of representative characters across the entire breadth of Israeli society but focuses on two families – the Shachars, a kibbutz family, and the Goldsteins, representing the emerging Israeli middle class. The protagonists in effect vie to win the heart and soul of Israel itself, personified by the beautiful Ariela.

Now writing full time, he has published dozens of stories in the past few years in "TriQuarterly", "Gargoyle", "The MacGuffin", "Minnetonka Review", "Los Angeles Review", "Prism Review", "Underground Voices", and others.
