From the Publisher
"In a world full of hype, noise, and confusion, the simple lucidity of The Same Sea is totally unexpected." -- New York Times Book ReviewThe Same Sea is Amos Oz's most adventurous and inventive book, a novel of lyrical beauty and narrative power. We meet the middle-aged Albert; his wife, whom he has lost to cancer; his prodigal son, who wanders the mountains of Tibet hoping to find himself; and his son's young girlfriend, with whom Albert becomes infatuated. The author himself receives phone calls from his creations, criticizing him for his portraits of them. A fever dream of chaos and order, love and eroticism, loyalty and betrayal. "A prose poem . . . at once melancholic and sensual." -- The New Yorker
