9780099982005: Where the Jackals Howl

Where the Jackals Howl is prize-winning author Amos Oz's first collection of stories. On publication it received immediate critical acclaim and revealed Oz to be a master craftsman probing the emotional depths of his characters. The lives of ordinary Israelis are set against the backdrop of community life in a Kibbutz. The fate of these individuals, their drives, ambitions and idiosyncrasies, are grounded by the physical and social structure of their community as Oz portrays their world as a microcosm of the wider world.

About the Author:

Born in Jerusalem in 1939, Amos Oz is the internationally acclaimed author of many novels and essay collections, translated into over forty languages, including his brilliant semi-autobiographical work, A Tale of Love and Darkness. He has received several international awards, including the Prix Femina, the Israel Prize, the Goethe Prize, the Frankfurt Peace Prize and the 2013 Franz Kafka Prize. He lives in Israel and is considered a towering figure in world literature.

Review:

"It rarely happens that literature offers a more profound insight into politics and culture than does news reporting. Amos Oz has performed this rare service" * Times Literary Supplement * "Amos Oz makes the desert a place of jackals and miracles... A strong, beautiful, disturbing book" * New York Times * "A born storyteller" * Jewish Chronicle *
