  • This is a dark book, with a dark vision of contemporary Israel… The whole, rich, disturbing mixture makes one feel as if something dark is digging away at the foundations, something unnameable ready to emerge. It is one of the most powerful books you will read about present-day Israel.

    David Herman, Jewish Chronicle
  • These stories have both force and mystery, and they cast a quiet spell

    Scotland on Sunday
  • A powerfully bleak portrait of loneliness, confusion and cracked bonds

    The Times
  • These stories, in their humanity, may do more for Israel than any of the decisions we have been led to expect of its leaders in the months to come

    New Statesman
  • I enjoyed Amos Oz's Scenes From Village Life a great deal... it explores what is universal, what is entirely idiosyncratic, about daily life in Israel away from the obvious conflicts

    Kate Kellaway, Observer
