The Author (unnamed), a literary celebrity in his forties, is in Tel Aviv on a stifling hot night to give a reading. Bored, he looks for distraction - and finds copy. On the way he stops at a cafe where he 'bumps into' some of his own characters. In his head he conjures up the life stories of the people he meets. "Every event, every factual detail, every discovery opens myriad doors to unexpected revelations...It is impossible to give a full account of this book's riches." / The Washington Post Book World "Fascinating, beautifully written and closer to a great 19th-century novel than to the ironic minimalism of our time. No serious reader should miss this testimony from an extraordinary writer." / The Forward

Rim p liv och dd (originaltitel: Charuzei Ha-Chaim Ve-Ha-Mavet) - Amos Oz

Sida vid sida ska de vandra,
brud och brudgum bredvid varandra

S lyder de vlknda raderna i poeten Tsefania Beit-Halachami bok Rim p liv och dd som ocks utgr titel fr Amos Oz roman. Det r roman om hur romaner vcks till liv och hur skrivarprocessen formar den. I djupa skildringar lyckas Amos Oz skildra hur en frfattare skriver och hur en handling vaknar till liv. Det r svrt, lttsmlt, svvande, egendomligt och frfriskt att lsa Rim p liv och dd.
