MORE THAN 2 MILLION EXEMPLAIRS SOLD in the WORLD Love and darkness are just two of the powerful forces that through Amos Oz is extraordinary, moving and moving.He takes us on a seductive journey through his childhood and adolescence, along Jerusalem is torn apart by the war of the streets in the 1940s and 50s, and in the infernal marriage of two kinds, well-meaning people: his meticulous, logical father, and his dreamer, romantic mother.Caught between them is a little boy with the weight of generations on his shoulders.And at the tragic heart of the story is his mother’s suicide, when Amos was twelve and a half years old.Oz history plunges into 120 years of family history and paradox, the saga of a Jewish love-hate affair with Europe that extends from Vilna and Odessa, through Poland and Prague, to Israel.The farce and sorrow, history and humanity make this magical portrait of the artist who saw the birth of a nation, and came through his turbulent life and his own.It’s a memory like no other, and it shouts out to read and wept on it.Previous winners of the 2013 Franz Kafka Prize include Philip Roth, Ivan Klima, Elfriede Jelinek, Harold Pinter and John Banville.
