Description

‘A hero of mine, a moral as well as literary giant’ Simon Schama

Amos Oz, the internationally acclaimed author of A Tale of Love and Darkness and Judas, grew up in war-torn Jerusalem, where as a boy he witnessed first-hand the poisonous consequences of fanaticism.

In How To Cure a Fanatic Amos Oz analyses the historical roots of violence and confronts truths about the extremism nurtured throughout society. By bringing us face to face with fanaticism he suggests ways in which we can all respond.

From the author of A Tale of Love and Darkness and Man Booker International Prize shortlisted Judas.

‘He was the conscience of Israel’ Roger Cohen, New York Times
