Last week Gib Van Ert, author of the recently reviewed A Long Time Ago, tweeted some warm words for my review. You know me, it always warms my heart to hear an author referring to my review. I therefore thought I would pay him back for his tweet. I would do so using his own currency: I would repay the author of a book about growing up in the shadow of the Star Wars franchise through my own previously untold Star Wars story.
Moshe goes on to tell a funny and sweet story about seeing films in Tel Aviv with his favourite uncle, who would always record their exact running time using his fancy new digital watch. He explains how he considers The Empire Strikes Back to be the first film he ever saw (in significance if not strictly chronology) and how Star Wars is the first film he did not see, in part because his mother told him it was "all stupid". It's a great read. Follow the link below.
