Revue de presse


"Detailed and beautiful . . . As he writes about himself and his family, Oz is also writing part of the history of the Jews . . . We are in the hands here of a capable, practiced seducer."--Los Angeles Times

"This lyrical saga . . . succeeds both as a revelatory tale of the artist as young man and a gripping portrait of the young Jewish state itself."--The Miami Herald

Présentation de l'éditeur

Winner of the National Jewish Book Award

International Bestseller

"[An] ingenious work that circles around the rise of a state, the tragic destiny of a mother, a boy’s creation of a new self." — The New Yorker

A family saga and a magical self-portrait of a writer who witnessed the birth of a nation and lived through its turbulent history. A Tale of Love and Darkness is the story of a boy who grows up in war-torn Jerusalem, in a small apartment crowded with books in twelve languages and relatives speaking nearly as many. The story of an adolescent whose life has been changed forever by his mother’s suicide. The story of a man who leaves the constraints of his family and community to join a kibbutz, change his name, marry, have children. The story of a writer who becomes an active participant in the political life of his nation.

"One of the most enchanting and deeply satisfying books that I have read in many years." — New Republic

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This was an amazing memoir, beautifully written by Amos Oz 28 juillet 2016
Par Lucinda Monica - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This was an amazing memoir, beautifully written by Amos Oz, who was born in Jerusalem in 1939, witnessing the birth of the nation of Israel, and living through joyous and tragic events in his own family and his new country. The relationship between young Amos and his intellectual, immigrant parents is a central theme of his story. Amos' struggle to find his own voice and identity, especially after his mother's suicide, is beautifully written.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Looking Glass for Humanity 19 juillet 2011
Par Daniel Myers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
It is with a certain, very piquant, sense of humility that I pen this review. Oz's memoir is so textured, so full of the many layered joys and sorrows of life, anyone's life, that it rather overwhelms the sensitive reader, regardless of how well-read she or he may be. Whilst certainly tied to Jerusalem in the 1940's-1950's during which he came of age, Oz manages to weave a spell around the reader, all the while maintaining his Chekhovian eye for the particular, that transcends the particular circumstances, that inevitably sparks feelings of déjà-vu and forgotten moments from the reader's own childhood and early adolescence. I certainly found this to be the case with me. It is one of the few books that one can say, with complete lack of irony, that it will make you laugh and make you cry, both at the still, sad music of humanity and at its endemic foibles.

Everyone will have her/his favourite sections. One of mine was young Amos's remembrance of his deep, painful crush on his second grade teacher, a poet, who would speak of a child as "flooded with light." Of her, he says, "She was my first love. An unmarried woman in her thirties. Teacher Zelda, Miss Schneerson. I was not quite eight, and she swept me away, she set in motion some kind of inner metronome that had not stirred before and has not stopped since."

Of course, as other reviewers have noted, the book has a centripetal swirl, towards the eventual suicide of Oz's mother, and a parallel with the Jerusalem setting in what he has reconstructed of her privileged, then persecuted, girlhood in Eastern Europe. But this does not make the work ultimately tragic. It is another layer in this startlingly written record of one person's sojourn on this Earth, rich and strange as is the life of every person reading this review. A masterpiece.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A story of sorrow told in beautiful, joyous prose 23 novembre 2009
Par Arul V. Suresh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
There are 54 reviewers who recorded their thoughts before mine. So, my review includes some comments on those reviews.

I found the book to be very fascinating because I am very curious about Jews as people and Israel as a country. Amos Oz has gone through events that few people go through in their life ... the most difficult one is his mother's suicide. The story is told in a radiating style with his mother's suicide being the focus. Events either flow towards it or away from it. It is not easy to tell such a difficult, painful story. Amos Oz tells it very effectively and virtually takes you into his life. His prose is so beautiful. He is also very humorous.

As many commented, this book is not completely autobiographical. A bulk of it is on his childhood years. He was in kibbutz for nearly 35 years starting from when he was nearly 15, but less than one third of the book is devoted to it. While so much detail is shared with readers about his reading habits, the people influenced him, etc., the life-changing decision he made with respect to joining kibbutz is told as if he woke up one day and decided to do it. There is no detail on how he found out about it, what he thought about it initially, and how he ultimately came up with the conviction.

Someone has mentioned that there are nothing but street names in the first 70 pages and the book was so boring they could not continue. I feel sorry for the person because he missed the best parts of the book. Even in the first 70 pages, there are a number of events of interest. In fact the most poetical paragraph in the book is in the first 70 pages which describes how his mother acted in the presence of a famous writer (Agnon).

So. Beautifully descriptive and heart rending.
I liked the detailed a history intertwined with Oz's distinctive family. His incredible abilities to read, observe and understand
Are compelling as are the struggles of his family and life in Israel.
A beautifully written and humane book.
