Amos Oz sketches Israeli village life with oddities

Jump to Comments

Amid the mundane lives of Tel Ilan villagers, strange things are happening. Esteemed Israeli author Amos Oz ventures into Kafkaland, at times, in his new collection of stories, Scenes from Village Life (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). Unexpected and inexplicable events transpire at climactic moments in these eight stories. Oz is a world-class writer, so the reader will be simultaneously entertained by his felicitous prose, and befuddled by the digging noises underneath the house and stranger who gets in bed with an old lady. — Mordecai Specktor
