Overview

"A generous imagination at work. [Oz’s] language, for all of its sensuous imagery, has a careful and wise simplicity." — New York Times Book Review

Situated only two miles from a hostile border, Amos Oz’s fictional community of Metsudat Ram is a microcosm of the Israeli frontier kibbutz. There, held together by necessity and menace, the kibbutzniks share love and sorrow under the guns of their enemies and the eyes of history.

"Immensely enjoyable." — Chicago Tribune Book World
