'There is no novelist writing today who catches the feeling of the moment more surely than Amos Oz' Scotsman

A powerful and tragicomic blend of politics and personal destiny, Black Box records in a series of letters the wrecked marriage Ilana and Alex. Seven years of silence following their bitter divorce is broken when Ilana writes to Alex for help over their wayward and illiterate son, Boaz, and old emotional scars are reopened.
