Amos Oz: Between Friends
Book Presentation with the Author and Ulrich Matthes
13 March 2013
In his new collection of short stories, Amos Oz builds on his great successes and returns to the time that inspired him the most – his kibbutz years. The eight stories are set in the fictional kibbutz Jikhat and draw beautiful portraits of women and men who indulge in their own dreams and their own pain, always in the shadow of the great dream of the collective. Each story is a literary gem, all together they make the image of a great idea.
"These stories ... tell of the elemental forces of human existence. Of loneliness. Of love. Of loss. Of death. Of longing. Of sacrifice and of desire. So of the basic things that affect everyone." (Amos Oz)
A cooperation with the Literaturhandlung.
