Judas By Amos Oz Cover Image
By Amos Oz

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER and winner of the International Literature Prize. At once an exquisite love story and a coming-of-age novel, an allegory for the state of Israel and for the biblical tale from which it draws its title, Judas is one of Amos Oz’s most powerful novels.

Jerusalem, 1959. Shmuel Ash, a biblical scholar, is adrift in his young life when he finds work as a caregiver for a brilliant but cantankerous old man named Gershom Wald. There is, however, a third, mysterious presence in his new home. Atalia Abravanel, the daughter of a deceased Zionist leader, a beautiful woman in her forties, entrances young Shmuel even as she keeps him at a distance. Piece by piece, the old Jerusalem stone house, haunted by tragic history and now home to the three misfits and their intricate relationship, reveals its secrets.

“[A] magnificent novel . . . Oz pitches the book’s heartbreak and humanism perfectly from first page to last.”—New York Times Book Review

“Scintillating . . . An old-fashioned novel of ideas that is strikingly and compellingly modern.”—Observer

“Oz has written one of the most triumphant novels of his career.”—Forward

“A [big] beautiful novel . . . Funny, wise, and provoking.”—Times (UK)
