9780099283959: The Same Sea

Nadia is dead. Her widower, Albert, comforted by his old friend Bettine, is trying to put his life back together. His son, Enrico, has gone to find himself in Tibet. Enrico's girlfriend, Dita, is being friendly and daughterly to Albert- but his responses are less platonic. Meanwhile, Dita has another lover, and a slightly repellent film producer lusts after her too. Through these intersecting triangles of desire and loss comes an intimate, everyday tale of unrequited love, attachment and grief- surprising, heartbreaking, funny, poetic and simply unmissable.

Book Description:

Published in hardcover by Harcourt, 2001, 0-15-100572-9

From the Back Cover:

“In a world full of hype, noise, and confusion, the simple lucidity of The Same Sea is totally unexpected.” — New York Times Book Review

The Same Sea is Amos Oz’s most adventurous and inventive book, a novel of lyrical beauty and narrative power. We meet the middle-aged Albert; his wife, whom he has lost to cancer; his prodigal son, who wanders the mountains of Tibet hoping to find himself; and his son’s young girlfriend, with whom Albert becomes infatuated. The author himself receives phone calls from his creations, criticizing him for his portraits of them. A fever dream of chaos and order, love and eroticism, loyalty and betrayal.

“A prose poem . . . at once melancholic and sensual.” — The New Yorker

AMOS OZ was born in Jerusalem in 1939. He is the author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, including his acclaimed memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness, which was an international bestseller and a recipient of the National Jewish Book Award.
