In the summer of 1989, at Tel-Kedar, a small settlement in the Negev Desert, the long time love affair between Theo, a sixty-year-old civil engineer, and Noa, a much younger school teacher, is slowly disintegrating. When a pupil of Noa's dies under difficult circumstances, the couple and the entire town are thrown into turmoil.
With characteristic subtlety and brilliance, Amos Oz tells a wry and tender story of frustrated ambition and love which is never quite fulfilled - bringing together stormy intrigue in a small community with gentle humour and an intimate anatomy of a relationship.

"Oz's sense of place brings Faulkner to mind. His quest for ideals is Tolstoyan, his hapless, decaying characters evoke thoughts of Bellow, but their intensity of feeling, their obsession with elementary issues is Dostoevskian" ( Sunday Telegraph)
"A commanding artist who ranks with the most important writers of our time" (Cynthia Ozick)
"Oz has imposed order on a literary landscape that, at least to his overseas readers, seethes with conflict" ( Guardian)
"An elegiac, exquisite portrait of a middle-aged love affair" ( Independent)
'Vivid, convincing and haunting' - New York Times
