Rana Mitter presents an extended conversation with celebrated Israeli writer and academic Amos Oz, author of novels such as Black Box and Don't Call it Night - works which established his name.

He has also written essays on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, literary criticism and his memoir - A Tale of Love and Darkness.

Oz is continually canvassed by international onlookers at moments of political turbulence in his home region, such as the one experienced during Israel's offensive against Hamas in Gaza in 2008/09. In his latest book, Rhyming Life and Death, he gives a wry account of a writer's relationship to his audience and the delicate balance between fiction and autobiography.
