I’m a Pajama Iraqi

I’m a Pajama Iraqi

A child immigrant from Iraq succeeds in breaking poetic and geographic boundries through his art. Ronny Someck symbolizes true Israeli poetry. His books have been translated into 44 languages, and his poems embody the essence of Israeli culture, connecting east and west, everyday life and high culture, the private and the public.
