Ce qu’en dit l’éditeur
Linked short stories set in a town in the midst of change: “One of the most powerful books you will read about present-day Israel.” —The Jewish Chronicle
 
“‘Scenes from Village Life’ is like a symphony, its movements more impressive together than in isolation. There is, in each story, a particular chord or strain; but taken together, these chords rise and reverberate, evoking an unease so strong it’s almost a taste in the mouth . . . ‘Scenes from Village Life’ is a brief collection, but its brevity is a testament to its force. You will not soon forget it.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
Strange things are happening in Tel Ilan, a century-old pioneer village. A disgruntled retired politician complains to his daughter that he hears the sounds of digging at night. Could it be their tenant, that young Arab? But then the young Arab hears the digging sounds too. And where has the mayor’s wife gone, vanished without a trace, her note saying “Don’t worry about me”? Around the village, the veneer of new wealth—gourmet restaurants, art galleries, a winery—barely conceals the scars of war and of past generations: disused air-raid shelters, rusting farm tools, and trucks left wherever they stopped. Scenes From Village Life is a memorable novel in stories by the inimitable Amos Oz: a brilliant, unsettling glimpse of what goes on beneath the surface of everyday life. Translated from Hebrew by Nicholas de Lange
 
“Finely wrought . . . Oz writes characterizations that are subtle but surgically precise, rendering this work a powerfully understated treatment of an uneasy Israeli conscience.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
“Informed by everything, weighed down by nothing, this is an exquisite work of art.” —The Scotsman
Biographie
Amos Oz, né à Jérusalem en 1939, est l'auteur d'une oeuvre aux multiples facettes. Depuis un premier succès international avec son roman Mon Michaël, il s'est imposé comme l'écrivain israélien le plus important de sa génération. Il a reçu de nombreux prix littéraires et distinctions à travers le monde (dont le prix Femina étranger pour La boîte noire). Parmi ses livres les plus marquants, Une histoire d'amour et de ténèbres (Gallimard, 2004) lui a valu un grand succès.
