Reading Circle 28: 'A Tale of Love and Darkness' by Amos Oz
Set across Istanbul and Oxford, from the 1980s to 2016, ‚Three Daughters of Eve‘ is a sweeping tale of faith and friendship, tradition and modernity, love and an unexpected betrayal.
Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife and mother, in on her way to a dinner Party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground – an old Polaroid of three Young women and their University Professor. A relic from the past – and a love – that Peri had tried desperately to forget.
Maria, Sandra and Andrew discuss the title, author and several main themes, as well as the narrative structure and style.
‚An intense, discursive and absorbing novel.‘ (Observer)
‚An intelligent, fierce and beguiling read.‘ (Financial Times)
‚A terrific book. Poetic, poignant, trenchant.‘ (Ian Rankin)
Music by Koeprueller (2006) and J.S. Bach
