On Our Shelves (as of this morning) Published:
Mariner Books, 10/2002
Part novel, part collection of poems, part ghost story, part biblical allegory, this secular literature from Israeli author Amos Oz defies any attempt at clarification. Which may be the point, for the closest Oz comes to a plot is drawing the distance between a son and father in grief, and the silence that springs when we ache to see our loved one again. This is a good, good...book?
