Reading Circle 28: 'A Tale of Love and Darkness' by Amos Oz

Maria, Sandra and Andrew discuss an extraordinary novel: an intimate portrait of a family and an  epic tale of hope and struggle. This road novel examines the power – and limitations – of  family bonds.
Set deep in Mississippi, a broken family are laid bare, exposed to racial discrimination and violence. This is a topical – and still timeless novel.
We summarize the plot, look at the characters and how they interact, and analyse the narrative power, reading several extracts.
