Efrat Mishori is a poet who was born in Israel in 1964. She has published seven volumes of poetry including As far as Efrat (1996), Bites of Little Fish (1999), The Physical Mouth (2002), and a fairytale in verse for children. In 2001, she received the Israeli Prime Minister’s Prize for Literature. Mishori, who calls herself "an ‘anti-poetical’ poet involved in an intimate relationship with language," included pop music in her 1997 one-woman show, “I am the Model of Poetry.” Her doctoral dissertation (Ph.D. 2006) dealt with Tel-Aviv as a transitional-object of the poet. Her new poetry book, Shall We Go for the Moon?, will be published in 2011.
