9780099521020: Rhyming Life and Death

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...

From the Back Cover:

"The title . . . suggests the motif that has haunted [Oz's] work almost from the beginning of his career . . . A fanciful and exploratory look."
Alan Cheuse, San Fransisco Chronicle

Eight hours in the life of an author. Tel Aviv, a stifling hot night. A literary celebrity is giving a reading from his new book. And as his attention wanders, he begins to invent lives for the strangers he sees around him: here, a self-styled cultural guru, Yakir Bar-Orian Zhitomirski; there, a love-starved professional reader, Rochele Reznik; to say nothing of Ricky the waitress, the real object of his desires. Reality and fiction blend in this ingenious poignant novel from the celebrated author of A Tale of Love and Darkness.

"Evocative . . . beautifully translated by Nicholas de Lange."
Liesl Schillinger, New York Times Book Review

Amos Oz is a prize-winning novelist and essayist whose honors include the Prix Femina, the Israel Prize, the Frankfurt Peace Prize, and the Prince of Asturias Award for Letters. His memoir, A Tale of Love and Darkness, was awarded the Koret Jewish Book Award in 2005.

Nicholas de Lange is a professor at the University of Cambridge and a renowned translator. He has translated Amos Oz's work since the 1960s.
