In a certain small village, something is off kilter. An elderly man complains to his daughter that he hears the sound of digging under his house at night. Could it be his tenant, a young Arab? But then the tenant hears the mysterious digging sounds too. The mayor receives a note from his wife: "Don't worry about me." He looks all over, no sign of her. The veneer of new wealth around the village-- gourmet restaurants and art galleries, a winery-- cannot conceal abandoned outbuildings, disused air raid shelters, rusting farm tools, and trucks left where they stopped. Amos Oz's novel-in-stories is a brilliant, unsettling glimpse of what goes on behind the surface of everyday life. Scenes of Village Lifeis a parable for Israel, and for all of us.
