Need to see what others rated it so highly for and what I missed. To me this was a disjointed collection of narratives taking place in a bucolic Israeli village that is on the cusp of change and modernization/monetization. As a result, bizarre things are happening (a stranger comes to town and crawls into bed with an old lady, the mayor's wife disappears, there are sounds of digging from underneath the teacher's house, but no evidence of it. None of it is ever resolved or explained. There are tensions between old and new, and considerable consternation about an Arab student living/working on the teacher's farm (and ironing her underwear) and I get that all of this is probably an undercurrent of fear of change and latent nationalism, and is billed as "a memorable novel in stories" with "unsettling glimpses of what goes on beneath the surface of everyday life" but I just couldn't grasp it as a whole.

Just that. Vignettes of life in an old Israeli village. Lives loosely intersect where everyone knows everyone else. The text is lyrical and evocative with characters vividly drawn - the affable mayor, friend to all but distant to his wife, the former MK suspicious of the Arab student lodger, and hearing digging under foot at night. Some characters, especially women, yearn to break away. Others, mainly men, yearn to hold on to the past. You can feel the sun beating down, hear the wind through the cypress trees, hear the night sounds of dogs barking and, sometimes, shots ringing out. Somewhere close there is strife and villages that are not so "normal" as the last story describes; but here are ordinary village lives. ( )

This is a very delicate little book, in which nothing much seems to be happening - we get seven snippets from the ordinary lives of ordinary people in a village called Tel Ilan, created as a farming community by Jewish pioneers a century ago, and now slowly turning into a "beauty spot". The characters from each story pop up in the background of one or two of the others, but there isn't anything like a connected plot; even within the stories themselves there's no conventional dramatic resolution. And there are borderline strange things going on that are never quite explored or explained. But we learn a good deal from the "throwaway" background details about how small communities work, about families, about the state of Israel and its relationship with its history, about art and work and culture, about life and death and old age, and much else.

Another writer I will have to read more of. And almost a motivation to try to learn Hebrew... ( )

Loneliness, lethargy, depression, and vague but unmistakable feelings of anxiety pervade most of the characters and the overall mood of the book. These senses of aloneness, isolation, and unease are reminiscent of the short stories of Anton Chekhov and Sherwood Anderson. Mr. Oz’s stories almost have a sense of the uncanny yet contain no supernatural elements.

Fans of Mr. Oz’s novels and his memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness will find this book lacks the narrative and psychological complexity of those longer works—but that’s not a fair comparison...Mr. Oz’s signature prose style is undiminished in this shorter format, and Nicholas de Lange’s British translation meets the high standard Mr. Oz’s Anglophone readers have come to expect of him.

 
Oz is a versatile writer, and he returns, in his fine new story collection, “Scenes From Village Life,” to a spare, almost allegorical style, in which the silence around the words also signifies. Admirably rendered in English by Oz’s longtime translator, Nicholas de Lange, these linked stories prove achingly melancholy, a cumulative vision of anomie and isolation in an apparently cozy Israeli village.

Echoes of Sherwood Anderson are unmistakable here: Tel Ilan is Oz’s Winesburg, Ohio, a place of supposed community and mutual support in which each soul struggles privately with longing and disappointment. Each of the collection’s eight stories shows someone searching, either literally or metaphorically, and without success, for relief. Some venture toward the gothic: “Lost,” about a real estate agent’s eager and ultimately eerie visit to the crumbling mansion he hopes to buy, raze and redevelop, reads like something by Edgar Allan Poe. Others are slightly fantastical: the first story has something of Isaac Bashevis Singer, and the last is reminiscent of Kafka.

Amos Oz tar det lugnt. Kanske lite väl lugnt. Han litar på sin penna och sin varma och vänliga berättarauktoritet. Det räcker långt, men jag känner mig ändå lite oengagerad när boken är slut.

The stranger was not a stranger. Something in his appearance repelled and yet fascinated Arieh Zelnick from first glance, if it really was the first glance: he felt he remembered that face, the arms that came down to nearly his knees, but vaguely, as though from a lifetime ago.

'That's a lovely tune,' the old man said. 'Heart-rending. It reminds us of a time when there was still some fleeting affection between people. There's no point in playing tunes like that today: they are an anachronism, because nobody cares any more. That's all over. Now our hearts are blocked. All feelings are dead. Nobody turns to anyone else except from self-interested motives. What is left? Maybe only this melancholy tune, as a kind of reminder of the destruction of our hearts.'
Inside everyone, I thought, there is the child they once were. In some you can see that it's still a living child; others carry around a dead child inside them.
It was because it was so beautiful that he had dreamed of returning. And because of the peace and quiet. And because of something else that he couldn't define...

(Adel in "Digging")
