Om Between Friends

Winner of the National Jewish Book Award: A ';gorgeous, rueful collection of eight linked stories' capturing the collective dreams of Israel in the 1950s (Chicago Tribune). These eight interconnected stories, set in the fictitious Kibbutz Yekhat, draw masterful profiles of idealistic men and women enduring personal hardships in the shadow of one of the greatest collective dreams of the twentieth century. A devoted father who fails to challenge his daughter's lover, an old friend, a man his own age; an elderly gardener who carries on his shoulders the sorrows of the world; a woman writing perversely poignant letters to her husband's mistress. Each of these stories is a luminous human and literary study; together they offer an eloquent portrait of an idea, and of a charged and fascinating epoch. Award-winning writer Amos Oz, who spent three decades living on a kibbutz, is at home and at his best in this ';lucid and heartbreaking' award-winning collection (TheGuardian). ';Oz lifts the veil on kibbutz existence without palaver. His pinpoint descriptions are pared to perfection ... His people twitch with life.' The Scotsman ';A collection of stories ... that boasts the sense, scope and unity of a novel ... Breathtaking.' Irish Examiner ';A complex and melancholic vision of people struggling to transcend their individuality for the sake of mundanely idealist goals.' TheTimes Literary Supplement
