Oct 19, 2011 — Israeli writer Amos Oz rarely settles for a happy ending. His latest book, Scenes from Village Life, doesn't have one and, according to Oz, neither does the recent release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
Dec 1, 2004 — Amos Oz's latest is A Tale Of Love And Darkness, a memoir of growing up in Jerusalem in the turbulent 1940s and '50s, when a war-torn Israel was achieving statehood. Oz's home life was as intense as the world outside. The book follows Oz through his mother's suicide to a growing interest in politics and writing.
