    This is a lovely, haunting book full of piercing honesty

    This memoir by a very gifted writer will never leave you. The piercing honesty and the lovely prose with which the author weaves his fascinating story have left an indelible and intricate tracing through my brain. Read it and you will see why.

    Where Oz Comes From

    If it is true that Oz wants to be remembered for 'The Same Sea', then, sadly, he has outwritten his own favorite with 'A Tale of Love and Darkness'. In 'The Same Sea' Oz began to write openly to his parents yet it is only here that we learn the full story. If we, as readers, love anything of Oz, this 'memoir' written in his twilight is his greatest gift to us, the simplest proof of his humanity, eroticism and insight into the world he has been so kind as to lend us.

    A gripping story

    A Tale of Love and Darkness is a hilarious though serious book about the life of the author in the historical setting of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Being the great storyteller he is, Amos Oz made the true events so easy to relate to, and as such this book is remarkable.
