From the Back Cover:

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year
[To Know a Woman has] the powerful undertow of myth . . . A rich and affecting novel. New York Times
Following the accidental death of his wife, Israeli secret service agent Yoel Ravid retires to the suburbs with his daughter, mother, and mother-in-law. After a lifetime of uncovering other people s secrets, he is forced to look back on his own: the desolate enigma of his wife s life and death, his years of service to the state, the riddle of his daughter s behavior. Amos Oz infuses Yoel s story with poetry, humor, and a vivid sense of the madness inherent in everyday existence.
His language is Hebrew, his setting Israel, his message is universal. Boston Jewish Times
