An unnamed author waits in a bar in Tel Aviv on a stifling hot night. He is there to give a reading of his work but as he sits, bored, he begins to conjure up the life stories of the people he meets. Later, when the reading is done he asks a woman for a drink. She declines and the author walks away, only to climb the steps to her flat, later that night. Or does he?

In Amos Oz's beguiling, intriguing story the reader never really knows where reality ends and invention begins...

Review:

"A master class in interlocking character sketches, and a fable on the themes of sex, death and writing pitched somewhere between the fictional universes of JM Coetzee and Milan Kundera" ( Guardian)

"Delightful...a meditation, on the art of writing, the relationship between literature and life, between life and death...the work of a master. A book you are likely to return to" ( Scotsman)

"Oz writes with fluency and a sly humour" ( Daily Mail)

"A playful and meditative examination of old age, literary posterity and the juxtaposition between literature and real life" ( Metro)

"Beautifully balanced between humour and sorrow" ( Literary Review)

Review:

`Amos Oz's beguiling novella'.
