9780156035668: The Amos Oz Reader

The "Reader "draws on Oz's entire body of work, loosely grouped into four themes: the kibbutz, the city of Jerusalem, the idea of a "promised land," and his own life story. Included are excerpts from his celebrated novels, among them "Where the Jackals Howl, A Perfect Peace, My Michael, Fima, Black Box, "and "To Know a Woman. "Nonfiction is represented by selections from "Under This Blazing Light, The Slopes of Lebanon, In the Land of Israel, "and Oz's masterpiece, "A Tale of Love and Darkness. "Robert Alter, a noted Hebrew scholar and translator, has provided an illuminating introduction.

Review:

"Bringing the same intensity of engagement and passion for poetic expression to fiction and nonfiction alike, [Oz] articulates the psychological complexity beneath the armor of Israel's bellicose politics and the tragedy of its geopolitical predicament. This well-organized volume reaches back to the 1960s, mixes genres, and showcases Oz's beautifully mythic prose...Timely and illuminating."-Donna Seaman, "Booklist""" "[T]his literary album contains striking snapshots by a gifted writer with a capacious heart and humane philosophy."-"Kirkus Reviews"
