Tales of love and darkness by Amos Oz II

In his autobiography Amos Oz tells the story of every one of his relatives and immediate and not so immediate ancestors. The physical description of the characters, their next of kin, their origins, upbringing, development and demise may at times be too long for the reader who is interested in his writing, but not in the ultimate details of his genealogy.  I imagine these are not the readers he is writing for, he is writing for himself, so as not to forget where he comes from, and for his next of kin still around, who have suffered during the II W W the loss of those elders who would have told them the stories he is telling them now.  I believe he wants to make sure that whatever experience, histories, beliefs those late relatives held, is passed on to their descendants.
