Seven years after their divorce, Ilana breaks the sour silence with a letter to Alex, a world-renowned authority on fanaticism, begging for support with their rebellious adolescent son, Boaz. One letter ends up in one other, and so evolves a correspondence among Ilana and Alex, Alex and Michel (Ilana’s Moroccan husband), Alex and his Mephistophelian Jerusalem lawyer—a correspondence among father and mother, stepfather and stepson, father and son, each one pleading his or her personal case.

The greedy, lyrical, manipulative, loving Ilana has stirred issues up. Now, her former husband and her current husband became opponents now not just for her loyalty yet for her son’s as well.

Black field is a list of ardour, an inventive, witty, feeling novel of latest existence. Amos oz. at his novelistic, human, and poetic best.
