    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 Abravanel, the daughter of a deceased Zionist leader, a beautiful woman in her 40s, 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.

    It is the story of a boy growing up in the war-torn Jerusalem of the 40s and 50s in a small apartment crowded with books in 12 languages and relatives speaking nearly as many. His mother and father, both wonderful people, were ill-suited to each other. When Oz was 12 and a half years old, his mother committed suicide - a tragedy that was to change his life. He leaves the constraints of the family and the community of dreamers, scholars, and failed businessmen to join a kibbutz.

    Set in 1950s Jerusalem, My Michael is the story of a remote and intense woman named Hannah Gonen and her marriage to a decent but unremarkable man named Michael. As the years pass and Hannah's tempestuous fantasy life encroaches on reality, she feels increasingly estranged from him, and the marriage gradually disintegrates. Gorgeously written and profoundly moving, this extraordinary novel is at once a haunting love story and a rich, reflective portrait of a place.

    We meet the middle-aged Albert; his wife, whom he has lost to cancer; his prodigal son, who wanders the mountains of Tibet hoping to find himself; and his son's enticing young girlfriend, with whom Albert becomes infatuated and who in turn sleeps with her boyfriend's close friend. In this human profusion is a fever dream of chaos and order, love and eroticism, loyalty and betrayal, and ultimately an extraordinary energy.

    L'onorevole Pesach Kedem trascorre quel che gli resta da vivere a casa di sua figlia Rahel, in fondo al villaggio. È stato un uomo importante, ma ora la vecchiaia e i dispiaceri della vita politica lo hanno incattivito. Ma più di ogni altra cosa lo ossessiona un mistero: chi sta scavando ogni notte nella cantina di sua figlia? Il paese lo taccia di delirio, ma il giovane studente arabo che anima i pettegolezzi del kibbutz sembra pensarla proprio come l'ottuagenario: nel buio segreto della notte, qualcuno scava.

    A Mezudat Ram, un kibbutz isolato nel Nord del paese, circondato da nemici e sormontato dall'ombra di cupe montagne, si svolge la vita di una comunità di coloni, dediti all'agricoltura e all'allevamento, allo sport, alla musica, al dibattito, ma soprattutto alla purificazione. A trent'anni dalla fondazione del kibbutz, infatti, sono essenzialmente gli ideali di miglioramento personale e collettivo che sostengono i kibbutzim e il miglioramento si attua anche grazie al pettegolezzo.
