Yona Wallach lived to write, and wrote to live. Their short lives raged like a bushfire in the world of Hebrew poetry, leaving behind a devastated field that has yet to germinate again… but perhaps never will. The fuel for their fire was life itself. The more it burned, the more she scorched herself, until finally there was nothing left.
Higher tells about ten years from this remarkable life, from the last years of her youth to her late twenties. It all begins with her breakout into the world of contemporary poetry, tells the story of her dramatic fall and ends with her return to the world of Hebrew poetry.
