Overview

“Brilliant and insistent . . . The prose is sharp as a cameo, simple yet compelling, smoky, precise, lustrous, eerie.” — Boston Sunday Globe

Here Amos Oz captures the atmosphere of hatred in which Jews have lived, died, and struggled for understanding.

In Crusade, a band of soldiers journeys toward the Holy Land, killing any Jews they encounter; but soon the Crusaders face their own reckoning, as disease and deprivation take their toll.

Late Love
portrays an aged lecturer in modern Israel with paranoid visions of the destruction of his people at the hands of the Soviets. He is out of touch with a younger and saner generation, but knows they must be warned.

“Powerfully written, with subtlety and flagrance delicately balanced.” — Austin American-Statesman
