    Yaakov Shabtai (1934–81) (Hebrew: יעקב שבתאי‎) was an Israeli novelist, playwright, and translator. Other works by Shabtai include Uncle Peretz Takes Off, a collection of short stories, and Past Perfect (Sof Davar), a continuation of Past Continuous in terms of narrative and style, published posthumously.

    Past Perfect is the second novel by Yaacov Shabtai, who blasted the world of Hebrew letters with his novel Past Continuous. He died in his early forties, and left this book largely unfinished. His widow winnowed down the material and created this novel. The subject matter and Shabtai's tone and technique make this novel difficult reading, probably only suited to a fan of his work (I am one). But if you can get past the boredom of reliving someone's daily frustrations, there is so much to Past Perfect that speaks very deeply to what it means to be human. Shabtai puts them all on display.

    YA'AKOV SHABTAI (1934-1981) was an Israeli novelist, playwright, and translator. He combined a bleak, realistic outlook with a humor unusual on the Israeli literary landscape, bringing a touch of Yiddish irony and fluency to the archetypically local scene.
    Shabtai's most remarkable and permanent work is PAST CONTINUOUS , a portrait of three middle-aged Israeli men whose lives in Tel Aviv over a nine-month period are presented in the context of two events in the "life" of one of them. The flow of the narrative mixes past and present, thoughts and events, to create a stream of consciousness that moves from one character’s mind to another, often through objects and experiences. Written as a single paragraph, it was the first novel to be written in vernacular Hebrew. In its English translation the novel received international acclaim as a unique work of modernism, prompting critic Gabriel Josipovici of The Independent to name it the greatest novel of the decade, comparing it to Proust's "In Search of Lost Time". In a 2007 survey among 25 top Israeli publishers, editors, and critics, the novel was chosen the best Hebrew book written in Israel since the foundation of the state in 1948.
    PAST PERFECT , edited by the author's widow together with the critic Dan Miron and published posthumously, serves as an indirect continuation of Past Continuous in terms of narrative, prose style, and themes. Here the narrative has been broken down into four parts, and divided further into paragraphs, albeit lengthy ones. The first part is written in the same stream of consciousness mode as the earlier novel, moving seamlessly between the protagonist's thought and external events. The later parts of the novel move away from this style, towards a more varied narration, until the very end, when his death and rebirth are described in a lyrical, almost magical-realist style.
