Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A wonderfully engaging, exquisitely controlled, luminous work." — Washington Post Book World

In the autumn, Molkho's wife dies. The years of his loving attention are ended. But his newfound freedom is filled with the erotic fantasies of a man who must fall in love. Winter sees him away to the operas of Berlin and a comic tryst with a legal advisor who has a sprained ankle. Spring takes him to Galilee and an underage Indian girl. Jerusalem in the summer presents him with an offer from an old classmate to seduce his infertile wife. And the next autumn it is Nina (if only they spoke the same language!), whose yearning for her Russian home leads Molkho back to life.

A. B. Yehoshua is the widely acclaimed author of numerous novels, including JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE MILLENIUM, MR. MANI, THE LOVER, OPEN HEART, and THE LIBERATED BRIDE. One of Israel's preeminent writers, he has been awarded the Israeli Prize, the Koret Jewish Book Award, and the National Jewish Book Award. He lives in Haifa.

Synopsis:

In the autumn, Molkho's wife dies and his years of loving attention are ended. But his newfound freedom is filled with the erotic fantasies of a man who must fall in love. Winter sees him away to the operas of Berlin and a comic tryst with a legal advisor who has a sprained ankle. Spring takes him to Galilee and an underage Indian girl. Jerusalem in the summer presents him with an offer from an old classmate to seduce his infertile wife. And the next autumn it is Nina (if only they spoke the same language!), whose yearning for her Russian home leads Molkho back to life.

Five Seasons is a finely nuanced, unabashedly realistic novel that provides immense reading pleasure.
