By Amos Oz
“[A] lovely, rueful assortment . . . that lays naked the private human longings.” — Chicago Tribune
In Between Friends, Amos oz. returns to the kibbutz of the overdue Fifties, the time and position the place his writing begun. those 8 interconnected tales, set within the fictitious Kibbutz Yekhat, draw masterly profiles of idealistic women and men enduring own hardships within the shadow of 1 of the best collective desires of the 20th century. a loyal father who fails to problem his daughter’s lover, an previous pal, a guy his personal age; an aged gardener who contains on his shoulders the sorrows of the area; a girl writing perversely poignant letters to her husband’s mistress. each one of those tales is a luminous human and literary research; jointly they provide an eloquent portrait of an idea, and of a charged and engaging epoch. Amos ounces at domestic. And at his best.
