A Tale of Love and Darkness

by Amos Oz - £9.99  Vintage (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099450030 | ISBN 10: 0099450038

The author takes us on a seductive journey through his childhood and adolescence in Israel, along Jerusalem's war-torn streets in the 1940s and 50s, into his Russian immigrant parents' infernal marriage. Caught in the middle is one small boy with the weight of generations on his shoulders. And at the tragic heart of the story is the suicide of his mother, when Amos was twelve.
