'Vivid, convincing and haunting' New York Times

Theo and Noa are middle-aged, but not without passion. They met in South America and have been together for eight years following a tempestuous love affair. He is world-weary and protective, a semi-retired town planner whose ideas were once controversial. Noa is a teacher, fifteen years younger, who yearns for change and purpose. Their relationship is precipitated into crisis by the mysterious and possibly drug-related death of Immanuel, one of Noa's pupils. As Noa gets caught up in a community project to commemorate the boy, the balance of power between her and Theo begins to shift. Amos Oz's brilliant new novel brings together stormy intrigue in a small community with gentle humour and an intimate anatomy of a relationship.
