Among Friends - a conversation with Amos Oz
Amos Oz, Israel's leading writer, is often mentioned as a likely candidate for the Nobel Prize for literature. In 1998 he won the Israel Prize for literature and the prestigious Goethe Prize, a triennial award for excellence in literature. His book My Michael is one of the one hundred best sold books in the 20th century and A Story of Love and Darkness was an international sensation. In January 2013 his latest book, Among Friends appears, a magnificent portrayal of the members of a kibbutz community, who, in spite of their collectivist society are a bunch of lonely individuals, left to their own devices. He talks about his work with Michel Krielaars, editor of NRC Handelsblad's book pages. In English.
