Between Friends, by Amos Oz

In Between Friends, Amos Oz returns to the kibbutz of the late 1950s, the time and place where his writing began. These eight interconnected stories, set in the fictitious Kibbutz Yekhat, draw masterly profiles of idealistic men and women enduring personal hardships in the shadow of one of the greatest collective dreams of the twentieth century. It can be read as a novel made up of eight stories, or as a skein of stories woven into a novel, in which characters cross over from strand to strand and patches are clarified or continued in other patches, lending the whole narrative a growing sense of uneasy familiarity. A devoted father who fails to challenge his daughter’s lover; an elderly gardener who carries on his shoulders the sorrows of the world; a woman writing perversely poignant letters to her husband’s mistress. Each of these stories is a luminous human and literary study; together they offer an eloquent portrait of an idea, and of a charged and fascinating epoch. 

Access to the Book:

The book can be ordered as a Kindle e-book, paperback or hardback at Amazon and I’m sure other online book sources.

Happy Reading! And “see you” in May.
