1. February 2 – Don’t Call It Night, by Amos Oz
(presented by Yael Greenberg)

In the summer of 1989, at Tel-Kedar, a small settlement in the Negev Desert, the long time love affair between Theo, a sixty-year-old civil engineer, and Noa, a much younger school teacher, is slowly disintegrating. When a pupil of Noa’s dies under difficult circumstances, the couple and the entire town are thrown into turmoil.

With characteristic subtlety and brilliance, Amos Oz tells a wry and tender story of frustrated ambition and love which is never quite fulfilled – bringing together stormy intrigue in a small community with gentle humour and an intimate anatomy of a relationship.
