Description


The haunting poetry of [Oz’s] prose and the stunning logic of his testimony make a potent mixture.” —Washington Post Book World

Amos Oz was one of the first voices of conscience to advocate for a two-state solution. As a founding member of the Peace Now movement, Oz has spent over thirty-five years speaking out on this issue, and these powerful essays and speeches span an important and formative period for understanding today’s tension and crises. Whether he is discoursing on the role of writers in society or recalling his grandmother’s death in the context of the language’s veracity; examining the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a tragicomedy or questioning the Zionist dream, Oz remains trenchant and unflinching in this moving portrait of a divided land.

“[Oz is] the modern prophet of Israel.” —Sunday Telegraph (UK)
