Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“An exemplary instance of a writer using his craft to come to grips with what is happening politically and to illuminate certain aspects of Israeli society that have generally been concealed by polemical formulas.” —The New York Times

Notebook in hand, Amos Oz traveled throughout Israel and the West Bank in the early 1980s to talk with workers, soldiers, religious zealots, aging pioneers, new immigrants, desperate Arabs, and visionaries, asking them questions about Israel’s past, present, and future. What he heard is set down here in those distinctive voices, alongside Oz’s observations and reflections. A classic insider’s view of a land whose complex past and troubled present make for an uncertain future.

“Oz’s vignettes . . . wondrously re-create whole worlds with an economy of words.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"Israel's foremost novelist probes in this powerful book the painful questions facing a divided people. Oz shows how the pluralism of political life in his country has enlarged the gulfs separating the Sephardim and Ashkenazim, the secular and religious Jews, the doves and the hawks, and the nationalists from the humanists. Much of the prose captures actual accounts of individuals Oz interviewed in 1982, whose frightening perceptions illustrate why peace between Israelis and Palestinians has not been reached. This controversial book is a must on the reading list of any serious student of Middle Eastern Affairs." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Synopsis:

In the early 1980s, Israel's celebrated novelist Amos Oz traveled throughout his country, recording its history as spoken by its inhabitants. First published in English 10 years ago, this timeless, astonishingly relevant work has been updated to include events of the past decade.

Synopsis:

Oz traveled throughout Israel and the West Bank in the 1980s and spoke with many people about the past, present, and future of his country. What he found is memorably set down here. New Authors Note and Postscript; map. Translated by Maurie Goldberg-Bartura. A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book
