Amos Oz grew up in the war-torn Jerusalem of the 1940s and 1950s, and his extraordinary memoir is simultaneously tragic, comic, and utterly honest. It is the magical self-portrait of a gifted writer who witnessed the birth of a nation and lived its turbulent history, but also his search through 120 years of family history for answers about his mother's suicide when he was 12 years old.
Signed by Oz on title page.
