Summary
International Bestseller Winner of the International Literature Prize Finalist for the Man Booker International Prize A New York Times Editors' Choice "[A] magnificent novel . . . Oz pitches the book's heartbreak and humanism perfectly from first page to last." — New York Times Book Review "Scintillating . . . An old-fashioned novel of ideas that is strikingly and compellingly modern." — Observer 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 forties, 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. At once an exquisite love story and a coming-of-age novel, an allegory for the state of Israel and for the biblical tale from which it draws its title, Judas is Amos Oz's most powerful novel in decades. "Oz has written one of the most triumphant novels of his career." — Forward "A [big] beautiful novel . . . Funny, wise, and provoking." — Times (UK)
