He was defeated by cancer, not fatigue. Amos Oz, the writer who never stopped looking for the ways of the world, died this morning in Israel. He was the eternal candidate for the Nobel Prize.
He was born in Jerusalem in 1939 and grew up in a kibbutz, those collective farms that gave identity to the first years of the existence of the Jewish state. He studied philosophy and literature at the University of Jerusalem.
In 1961, he began publishing: he was 22 years old. This would give him time to write many books: he would publish 18, among novels, short stories and essays. I would also write for Israeli and international newspapers.
One of his most famous books is autobiographical: The story of love and darkness published in 2002
