Jerusalem 1947. British soldiers patrol the streets, and bullets and bombs are a nightly occurrence.

About the Author:

Born in Jerusalem in 1939, Amos Oz is the internationally acclaimed author of many novels and essay collections, translated into 30 languages. He has received several international awards, including the Prix Femina, the Israel Prize and the Frankfurt Peace Prize. He lives in Arad, Israel.

Review:

"Countries need writers as their voices of conscience; few have them. Israel has Oz" Washington Post "One of the greatest prose writers in contemporary fiction" The Times "Amos Oz is a great writer because he tells stories about real people in a way that no one else can" -- Alan Sillitoe "He has that mixture of lyrical intensity, utter seriousness and capacity for describing life in a few words which characterises some of the best Russian authors" -- Melvyn Bragg "There are times when you are reminded what it means to be in the presence of a genius...with Amos Oz you have to add wisdom and hope too" Scotsman
