Tale(s) of Love and Darkness

I started reading Amos Oz's novel A Tale of Love and Darkness last night and have read about 50 pages so far. Even though I have not read much of it yet, I have the feeling that I picked a masterpiece when I chose it in the public library a couple of days ago.

This book is about national history (Oz's Zionist parents arrived in Israel before World War II), personal stories, stories written by others, memories and telling stories but above all it is a tale that questions the way you remember things and weave them so that they become your own inner and/or public story.

Shabbat Shalom!
