This was my first book by Amos Oz - he's really an incredible writer. Oz was born in 1931 in Jerusalem and writes about growing up in Israel. The story is about his personal life, which has fascinating characters and stories, but the backdrop is the creation of Israel in 1948, and the subsequent struggles and conflicts. Really a great book, with beautiful writing. I read the English translation, but the original in Hebrew must be amazing.
