Where the Jackals Howl by Amos Oz

Book Description

Where the Jackals Howl is prize-winning author Amos Oz's first collection of stories. On publication it received immediate critical acclaim and revealed Oz to be a master craftsman probing the emotional depths of his characters. The lives of ordinary Israelis are set against the backdrop of community life in a Kibbutz. The fate of these individuals, their drives, ambitions and idiosyncrasies, are grounded by the physical and social structure of their community as Oz portrays their world as a microcosm of the wider world.

Books By Author Amos Oz

Gender Medicine by Amos Oz Gender Medicine, Hardback (September 2016)

The groundbreaking call for reform, challenging the dangerous assumption that male and female patients can be effectively treated in the same way.

Elsewhere, Perhaps by Amos Oz Elsewhere, Perhaps, Paperback (September 2016)

The Kibbutz of Metsudat Ram lies in the valley of Jordan. The settlers go about their lives as the artillery rumbles in the distance. Among them are Reuven, the school teacher, his teenaged daughter, Noga, and Ezra, the truck-driver. As the seasons pass, so too do conflict and misunderstanding - all threatening to tear apart the community.

Soumchi by Amos Oz Soumchi, Paperback (September 2016)

When Soumchi, an eleven-year-old boy growing up in British-occupied Jerusalem just after World War II, receives a bicycle as a gift from his Uncle, he is overjoyed - even if it is a girl's bicycle. Ignoring the taunts of other boys in his neighborhood, he dreams of riding far away from them, out of the city towards the heart of Africa.

Judas by Amos Oz Judas, Hardback (September 2016)

Shmuel, a young, idealistic student, is drawn to a mysterious handwritten note on a campus noticeboard. This takes him to a strange house, where an elderly invalid man requires a paid companion, to argue with and read to him. But there is someone else in the house, too... A woman, who is trailed by ghosts from her past.
