Where The Jackals Howl
By

Rating
Where the Jackals Howl is prize-winning author Amos Oz's first collection of stories. On publication it received immediate critical acclaim and revealed Oz to be a master craftman probing the emotional depths of his characters. The lives of ordinary Israells are set against the backdrop of community life in a Kibbutz. The fate of these individuals, their drives, ambitions and idlosyncrasies, are grounded by the physical and social structure of their community as Oz portrays their world as a microcosm of the wider world.
