About this title
Seven years after her divorce and remarriage, Illana, an Israeli, writes to her ex-husband Alex, a professor in Chicago, asking for help with their rebellious son Boaz, and her letter precipitates a flurry of correspondence between Illana, Alex, Boaz, and Michel, Illana's new husbandFrom the Back Cover:
Seven years after their divorce, Ilana breaks the bitter silence with a letter to Alex, a world-renowned authority on fanaticism, begging for help with their rebellious adolescent son, Boaz. One letter leads to another, and so evolves a correspondence between Ilana and Alex, Alex and Michel (Ilana’s Moroccan husband), Alex and his Mephistophelian Jerusalem lawyer—a correspondence between mother and father, stepfather and stepson, father and son, each pleading his or her own case.
The grasping, lyrical, manipulative, loving Ilana has stirred things up. Now, her former husband and her present husband have become rivals not only for her loyalty but for her son’s as well.

Amos Oz was born in Jerusalem in 1939. He is the author of numerous works of fiction and nonfic¬tion, including his acclaimed memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness, which was an international bestseller and a recipient of the National Jewish Book Award.
