Description - Judas by Amos Oz
The Israeli master's exceptional final novel
SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2017
Shmuel - a young, idealistic student - has abandoned his studies in Jerusalem, taking a live-in job as a companion to a cantankerous old man. But Shmuel quickly becomes obsessed with the taciturn Atalia, a woman of enchanting beauty, who also lives in the house.
As the household's tangled, tragic past becomes apparent, so too does story behind the birth of the state of Israel. Journeying back into the deep past, Judas is a love story like no other by a master storyteller at the height of his powers.
