Tomer Gardi, born in 1974 in Kibbuz Dan in Galiläa, studied Hebrew literature and educational science in Jerusalem and Berlin. He was editor of the journal »Sedek: A Journal on the Ongoing Nakba«, a project of the Isreali-Jewish initiative Zochrot that aims to make the memory of the expulsion of the Palestinians part of public debate. Tomer Gardi’s literary essay Stein, Papier was published in 2011. Broken German, Tomer Gardis first novel written in German, caused broad discussion in Germany on literature and migration. Otherwise You’ll Get Your Money Back, his second novel, was published in Hebrew 2018 and in German translation in 2019. With his novel And Nothing Never Ends he won the Prize of the Leipzig Bookfair 2022. He is currently working on a novel about the lives and work of food delivery workers in five different cities in the world, one of them is Delhi.
