Judas by Amos Oz( Book )

66 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 1,584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winner of the International Literature Prize, the new novel by Amos Oz is his first full-length work since the best-selling A Tale of Love and Darkness. 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 Abarbanel, 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 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"--
Jews and words by Amos Oz( )

29 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors roam the gamut of Jewish history to explain the integral relationship of Jews and words. Father and daughter tell the tales behind Judaism's most enduring names, adages, disputes, texts, and quips. These words, they argue, compose the chain connecting Abraham with the Jews of every subsequent generation. From the unnamed, possibly female author of the Song of Songs through obscure Talmudists to contemporary writers, they suggest that Jewish continuity, even Jewish uniqueness, depends not on central places, monuments, heroic personalities, or rituals but rather on written words and an ongoing debate between the generations
In the land of Israel by Amos Oz( Book )

50 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and Hebrew and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Notebook in hand, Amos Oz traveled throughout Israel and the West Bank -- to cities, towns, and obscure corners -- to talk with workers, soldiers, religious zealots, aging pioneers, new immigrants, desperate Arabs, young fanatics, dreamers, and visionaries. He asked them where Israel had come from, where it was now, where it was headed. What he heard is memorably recorded here in their distinctive voices, alongside Oz's keen descriptions, observations, and reflections. Oz tells the truth as he sees it and others see it, with courage and brutal frankness. This scrupulously is accurate, but passionate, reporting on the most urgent questions facing Israel today"--Publisher's description

67 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fima lives in Jerusalem, but feels that he is in Jerusalem by mistake, that he ought to be somewhere else. In the course of his life he has had several love affairs, several ideas, has written a book of poems that aroused some expectations, has thought about the purpose of the universe and where the country has lost its way, has spun a detailed fantasy about founding a new political movement, has felt longings of one sort or another, and the constant desire to open a new chapter. And here he is now, in his early fifties, in this shabby flat on a gloomy wet morning, engaged in a humiliating struggle to release the corner of his shirt from the zipper of his fly." "With rare wit, intimate knowledge of the human heart, and his usual storytelling mastery, Amos Oz portrays a man - and a generation that dreams noble dreams but does nothing"--Jacket

Rhyming life & death by Amos Oz( Book )

21 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ingenious, witty, behind-the-scenes novel about eight hours in the life of an author. A literary celebrity is in Tel Aviv on a stifling hot night to give a reading from his new book. While the obligatory inane questions ("Why do you write? What is it like to be famous? Do you write with a pen or on a computer?) are being asked and answered, his attention wanders and he begins to invent lives for the strangers he sees around him. Among them are Yakir Bar-Orian Zhitomirski, a self-styled literary guru; Tsefania Beit-Halachmi, a poet (whose work provides the novel's title); and Rochele Reznik, a professional reader, with whom the Author has a brief but steamy sexual skirmish; to say nothing of Ricky the waitress, the real object of his desire. One life story builds on another--and the author finds himself unexpectedly involved with his creations

Gender medicine : the groundbreaking new science of gender- and sex-related diagnosis and treatment by M Glezerman( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over millions of years, male and female bodies developed crucial physiological differences to improve the chances for human survival. These differences have become culturally obsolete with the overturning of traditional gender roles. But they are nevertheless very real, and they go well beyond the obvious sexual and reproductive variances: men and women differ in terms of digestion, which affects the way medications are absorbed. Sensitivity to pain is dependent on gender. Even the symptoms of a heart attack manifest differently in a man than in a woman. And yet the medical establishment largely treats male and female patients as though their needs are identical. In fact, medical research is still done predominately on men, and the results are then applied to the treatment of women. This is clearly problematic and calls for a paradigm change--such a paradigm change is the purpose of Gender Medicine."--Publisher's website
Between friends by Amos Oz( Book )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oz lifts the veil on kibbutz existence without palaver. His pinpoint descriptions are pared to perfection. His people twitch with life."--Scotsman In Between Friends, Amos Oz returns to the kibbutz of the late 1950s, the time and place where his writing began. These eight interconnected stories, set in the fictitious Kibbutz Yekhat, draw masterly profiles of idealistic men and women enduring personal hardships in the shadow of one of the greatest collective dreams of the twentieth century. A devoted father who fails to challenge his daughter's lover, an old friend, a man his own age; an elderly gardener who carries on his shoulders the sorrows of the world; a woman writing poignant letters to her husband's mistress--amid this motley group of people, a man named Martin attempts to teach everyone Esperanto. Each of these stories is a luminous human and literary study; together they offer an eloquent portrait of an idea and of a charged and fascinating epoch. Amos Oz at home. And at his best. Translated from the Hebrew by Sondra Silverston "--

The story begins : essays on literature by Amos Oz( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these playful and perceptive commentaries, Oz shares his rich and rewarding experience as novelist, critic, and teacher. As he analyzes the opening sections of novels and short stories by such writers as Gogol, Kafka, Chekhov, Garcia Marquez, Raymond Carver, and with passing reference to other classics of world literature, Oz instructs, challenges, guides, and he entertains. Who hasn't been through the experience of sitting in front of a blank page, with its toothless mouth grinning at you? Some great writers write and rewrite the first sentence of a book a hundred times and never get beyond it. Others, presumably, give up altogether and, perhaps in despair, decide to begin just as it comes to them." "Oz explores with passion and wit why beginnings are as important as endings. He highlights opening paragraphs in which authors make promises they may not deliver, or deliver promises in unexpected ways, or deliver more than they have promised. It is a game that miraculously and playfully engages both writer and reader."--Jacket
