Publisher's Synopsis

The Israeli master's exceptional final novel

SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2017

Shmuel - a young, idealistic student - has abandoned his studies in Jerusalem, taking a live-in job as a companion to a cantankerous old man. But Shmuel quickly becomes obsessed with the taciturn Atalia, a woman of enchanting beauty, who also lives in the house.

As the household's tangled, tragic past becomes apparent, so too does story behind the birth of the state of Israel. Journeying back into the deep past, Judas is a love story like no other by a master storyteller at the height of his powers.


'A hero of mine, a moral as well as literary giant' Simon Schama

'One of his boldest works of all' Boyd Tonkin, Financial Times

'Amos Oz…brought so much beauty, so much love, and a vision of peace to our lives. Please hold him in your hearts and read his books' Natalie Portman

Judas is the first novel selected for the Amos Oz reading circle established by Natalie Portman.
