KN Book Club: "Judas" by Amos Oz

Location: Paula Flicker's Home

Judas is a recent novel of ideas by Amos Oz. Oz could no more create a dry novel of ideas without interesting characters and plot than..well, you supply your favorite unlikely event for comparison.

In this novel of nineteen-sixties Jerusalem, Shmuel Ash, lovelorn graduate student and lukewarm socialist, abandons his thesis ('Jewish Views of Jesus') to care for a frail, elderly Zionist living in a funereal villa. There he meets a cynical beauty who lost both her father and husband in the mid-century wars, backroom and battlefield, that defined the contours of Israeli statehood.

Plenty of copies at local libraries and available in paperback and electronic form if you prefer to own it.

Kol Nashim book club meets 7:30 pm on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at members' homes.

RSVP to so Paula can scale the snacks. Looking forward to seeing many of you there.
