"There is no novelist writing today who catches the feeling of the moment more surely than Amos Oz" ( Scotsman)
"Amos Oz is one of the finest novelists of this entire period.MY MICHAEL is a beautiful work of great depth and in some indescribable way lingers in the mind as a lyric song to his country's people as much as a moving love story." ( Arthur Miller)
"Amos Oz is a commanding artist who ranks with the most important writers of our time.MY MICHAEL, an early work, reveals him to have been from the first everything we know him to be today: a visionary fabricator of breathtaking power and wit, as well as a crafty interpreter of difficult souls." ( Cynthia Ozick)
"What stands out...is Oz's strident lyricism" (Rosanna Boscawen Observer)
"Slow, thoughtful, self-assured and highly sophisticated, full of the most skillful modulations of tone and texture. A modern Israeli Madame Bovary...distinguished by its warmth, its lyricism and remarkable technical control" ( New York Times)
'A moving love story' Arthur Miller
'A remarkable, percipient picture of the nature of women' A S Byatt
