At 10.20pm on Saturday 1 August 2009, a man walked along Nachmani Street, a residential road in central Tel Aviv. He went into the apartment block at number 28 and down a flight of steps to the basement flat, where a song by Blur was playing on the stereo amid the sound of laughter and conversation. There, the man shot 13 people, killing 26-year-old Nir Katz and 16-year-old Liz Trobishi, before returning up the steps and disappearing into the promenading crowds. His identity remains unknown.

He was an overbearing and unbearable man, and he was unpleasant to live with; but he was a poet." It was with these words that the French author Christiane Rochefort chose to sum up her lover, the Israeli journalist, writer and artist Amos Keinan, who has died in Tel Aviv. "Amos wakes up every morning and tries to decide whom he is going to hate today," said his friend (on some mornings) and contemporary Dan Ben Amotz. Even Keinan's wife, the film scholar Nurit Gertz, who had written a heart-clenching biographical book about him, failed to describe him as a particularly pleasant human being. However, Keinan's famous feisty rudeness, often supported by consuming an excessive amount of whisky, did not stop hundreds of Israelis, friends and foes alike, from attending his funeral, and lamenting one of the last icons of a generation gone.
