Synopsis

“Oz’s strangest, riskiest, and richest novel.” —Washington Post Book World

Israel, just before the Six-Day War. On a kibbutz, the founders of Israel and their children struggle to come to terms with their land and with each other. The messianic father exults in accomplishments that had once been only dreams; the son longs to establish an identity apart from his father; the fragile young wife is out of touch with reality; and the gifted and charismatic “outsider” seethes with emotion. Through the interplay of these brilliantly realized characters, Oz evokes a drama that is chillingly, strikingly universal.

“[Oz is] a peerless, imaginative chronicler of his country’s inner and outer transformations.” — Independent (UK)

“An exquisite thinker . . . Oz is a rare blast of sanity and intelligence.” — Observer (UK)

Translated by Hillel Halkin
