Title Details
Judas by Oz, Amos & Nicholas de Lange, trans.
Judas
by Oz, Amos & Nicholas de Lange, trans.
 
SHORT-LISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE

“[A] magnificent novel . . . Oz pitches the book’s heartbreak and humanism perfectly from first page to last, as befits a writer who understands how vital a political role a novelist can play.” —New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice
 
“Scintillating . . . An old-fashioned novel of ideas that is strikingly and compellingly modern.” —Observer


Jerusalem, 1959. Shmuel Ash, a biblical scholar, is adrift in his young life when he finds work as a caregiver for a brilliant but cantankerous old man named Gershom Wald. There is, however, a third, mysterious presence in his new home. Atalia Abarbanel, the daughter of a deceased Zionist leader, a beautiful woman in her forties, entrances young Shmuel even as she keeps him at a distance. Piece by piece, the old Jerusalem stone house, haunted by tragic history and now home to the three misfits and their intricate relationship, reveals its secrets. 
  
At once an exquisite love story and coming-of-age novel, an allegory for the state of Israel and for the biblical tale from which it draws its title, Judas is Amos Oz’s most powerful novel in decades.
