It is a surreal and unsettling place. Each villager is searching for something, and behind each episode is another, hidden story. In this powerful, hynotic work Amos Oz peers into the darkness of our lives and gives us a glimpse of what goes on beneath the surface of everyday existence. There are few marriages, or even healthy intimate relationships. Instead, Oz writes of strange familial relationships rising from odd circumstances.

At the same time that Oz describes the land the way a lover describes his beloved, the connection to the beloved grows ever more tenuous with each word. Oz writes from a generation dying out, a generation finding it increasingly hard to connect to the next generation or to themselves.

This theme emerges most explicitly in the penultimate story, Singing. Here, a group of people weaned on Zionist songs and values, gather together in what I imagine a Camp Massad reunion looks like to sing away the pain and conflict, amongst like-minded peers.

The only young person mentioned in the story is the dead son of the hosts, a 17 year old boy who shot himself under his parents bed. In fact, few young people appear in the book. In an attempt to keep up, or to hide from memories, the town attempts to renovate itself with new cultural markers.
