Book Review: Memoir and Family Redemption

By David Biale

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2005

The author reviews Amos Oz's memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness, noting that this may well be the best thing Oz has written and that he redeemed his father and mother by placing their very human failings in the historical drama in which they took part. He states that they emerge no more heroic than before, but, like the historical drama itself, profoundly human.
