The Same Sea is Amos Oz’s most adventurous and inventive book, a novel of lyrical beauty and narrative power and the book by which he would like to be remembered. We meet the middle-aged Albert; his wife, whom he has lost to cancer; his prodigal son, who wanders the mountains of Tibet hoping to find himself; and his son’s enticing young girlfriend, with whom Albert becomes infatuated and who in turn sleeps with her boyfriend’s close friend.

In this human profusion is a fever dream of chaos and order, love and eroticism, loyalty and betrayal, and ultimately an extraordinary energy.
