Amos Oz recommends
Scapegoat (1986)
Eli Amir
"In Scapegoat I found everything one looks for in an excellent novel."
The Ruined House (2017)
Ruby Namdar
"The Ruined House is a fascinating novel about the overwhelming presence of myth and historical trauma in our lives. A cross between Saul Bellow's disintegrating intellectuals and Bulgakov's mystical revelations, this is a fiercely inventive novel."
The Liar (2019)
Ayelet Gundar-Goshen
"Such a good book that touched me so deeply and strongly...Wonderful."
