Winner, National Jewish Book Award

“[A] gorgeous, rueful collection . . . that lays bare the deepest human longings.” — Chicago Tribune

In Between Friends, Amos Oz returns to the kibbutz of the late 1950s, the time and place where his writing began. These eight interconnected stories, set in the fictitious Kibbutz Yekhat, draw masterly profiles of idealistic men and women enduring personal hardships in the shadow of one of the greatest collective dreams of the twentieth century. A devoted father who fails to challenge his daughter’s lover, an old friend, a man his own age; an elderly gardener who carries on his shoulders the sorrows of the world; a woman writing perversely poignant letters to her husband’s mistress. Each of these stories is a luminous human and literary study; together they offer an eloquent portrait of an idea, and of a charged and fascinating epoch. Amos Oz at home. And at his best.

“Lucid and heartbreaking.” — Guardian (UK)

“All Israeli life is here, rendered in loving detail.” — Mail on Sunday (UK)

Sandy Lipovsky, March 18, 2010 (view all comments by Sandy Lipovsky)
The publisher promised a tale of love then and now and the importance of returning to a home of one's own. There are two stories in this book, one set in the 'now' and the other set in the 'then'.--yet both stories ovrrlap and near the end of the book are woven into something beautiful.

I loved this book and will have some of the images with me for many many months.
