“Once in a while it is worth turning on the light to clarify what is going on …”

(From the closing paragraph of Rhyming Life and Death by Amos Oz)

I began writing the novel I’m working on inspired by Amos Oz, Aharon Appelfeld and Denis Johnson. You should check them out. And this wonderful interview with Amos Oz that this quote is from.

Regrettably, I do not own Rhyming Life and Death because the Strand does not have a copy of said book. I have To Love a Woman and Fima, both of which are spectacular.
