Description
The first book from the acclaimed, award-winning author of A Tale of Love and Darkness and the New York Times Notable Book, Scenes from Village Life . The Washington Post praised Israeli author Amos Oz as "one of our essential writers, laying out for our observation, in ever-increasing breadth and profundity, the mad landscape of our time and his place." Here, in his first book, is a disturbing and moving collection of short stories about kibbutz life. Each of the eight stories in this volume grips the reader from the first line, and convey the tension and intensity of feeling in the founding period of Israel, a brand-new state with an age-old history. Some are love stories, more are hate stories, and frequently the two urges intertwine. "A strong, beautiful, disturbing book. It speaks piercingly--whether wittingly or unwittingly, I know not--of a dimension of the Israeli experience not often discussed, of the specter of the other brother, of a haunting, an unhealed wound; it reminds us of polarizations everywhere that bind and diminish us, that may yet rend us." -- The New York Times "As you read, you feel yourself, in all these stories, sinking deeper into the loam of Oz's sensibility, a paradoxical mix of sensuality and disdain. A good collection by an important international writer." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
