‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’ (2003)
by Amos Oz

Lee-Anne, Sylvia, Sandra and Andrew discuss Amos Oz’s 2003 ‘novelistic memoir’ ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’.

“Love and darkness are just two of the powerful forces that run through this extraordinary story. He takes us on a journey through his childhood and adolescence, along Jerusalem’s war-torn streets in the 1940s and 1950s, and into the infernal marriage of two kind, well-meaning people. Caught between them is one small boy with the weight of generations on his shoulders. And at the tragic heart of the story is the suicide of his mother, when Amos was 12-and-a-half years old.”

Music by Chopin, Beethoven & Schubert.
