Oz Profile

The Scotsman has a very enjoyable interview with Amos Oz.

[His political stance] has brought Oz an influx of regular hate mail and he has been spat upon in the streets.
“It has only happened once or twice,” he says, dismissively. These “total strangers” don’t like the sound of Oz’s voice or what they read as they stumble, baited, nakedly angry and insecure, upon his articles in right-wing Israeli journals. Oz likes to brave that lion’s den. As he told me once: “I want to address those who disagree with what I believe in, rather than reaching the converted.”

Oz is also in The Guardian this weekend, with an excerpt from his novel, A Tale of Love and Darkness.
