Publisher Description

Eight interlinked family dramas set on an Israeli kibbutz from the masterful storyteller behind A Tale of Love and Darkness

'On the kibbutz it's hard to know. We're all supposed to be friends but very few really are'

Ariella, unhappy in love, confides in the woman whose husband she stole.

Nahum, a devoted father, can't find the words to challenge his daughter's promiscuous lover.

The old idealists deplore the apathy of the young, while the young are so used to kibbutz life that they can't work out if they're impassioned or indifferent.

In this short story collection Amos Oz reveals the secrets and frustrations of the human heart

'Lucid and heartbreaking' Guardian

Review

All Israeli life is here, rendered in loving detail Mail on Sunday Presents us...with a complex and melancholic vision of people stuggling to transcend their individuality for the sake of mundanely idealistic goals -- Michael Sayeau Times Literary Supplement Engaging collection... Beautiful, spare prose -- Lucy Popescu Independent on Sunday Deeply affecting chamber piece... -- Ben Lawrence Daily Telegraph Oz is a quiet, plain, compelling writer -- Alan Taylor Herald Oz lifts the veil on kibbutz existence without palaver. His pin-point descriptions of individuals and spaces...are pared to perfection in order to resonate. His people twitch with life -- Tom Adair Scotsman There's a beautiful economy and simplicity to Oz's storytelling The Times Oz is brilliant at compact images in which a small action expresses a complexity of unarticulated emotion -- Rebecca Abrams Financial Times Between Friends is arguably something new, a collection of stories, but so interlinked by theme, setting and its rolling cast that it boasts the sense, scope and unity of a novel... The writing, tight and delicate, is technically breathtaking -- Billy O'Callaghan Irish Examiner Lucid and heartbreaking... Explores the always uncertain relationships between men and women, parents and children, friends and enemies, in a clear, clipped language perfectly suited to the laconic tone of the narrative and impeccably rendered into English by Sondra Silverston -- Alberto Manguel Guardian
