by Amos Oz
Edited by Nitza Ben-Dov
Introduction by Robert Alter

A rich and varied selection of writings - from the early 60s to the present - by Amos Oz, one of Israel's leading novelists, public intellectuals and political activists. The Amos Oz Reader draws on Oz’s entire body of work, loosely grouped into four themes: the kibbutz, the city of Jerusalem, the idea of a "promised land" and his own life story.

Included are excerpts from his celebrated novels, among them: Where the Jackals Howl, A Perfect Peace, My Michael, Fima, Black Box and To Know a Woman. Nonfiction is represented by selections from: Under This Blazing Light, The Slopes of Lebanon, In the Land of Israel, and Oz’s masterpiece, A Tale of Love and Darkness. Robert Alter, a noted Hebrew scholar and translator, has provided an illuminating introduction.
