"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"The israeli author, a keen traveler and human rights activist Amos Oz (born 1939) has passed away, informs The Jerusalem Post."
"Among the Swedish readers became Oz quickly a celebrity, through, inter alia, Viveka Heymans translation of the novel anywhere else, from 1975, and since then about twenty of the author's work published in Swedish. Among these is the autobiographical novel A tale of love and darkness from 2007 mentioned, and Judas from 2017, a utvecklingsroman but also a story about the state of Israel's violent history and an allegory of betrayal, on the basis of Judas's betrayal of Jesus."
"nOz has also published a number of books for children, of which I am particularly fond of An adventure in Jerusalem from 1980 (Rabén & Sjögren), in which the elvaårige Schumel replace a bike against a model railroad which is then exchanged for a dog. The book takes place in 1948, shortly before the state of Israel is formed."
"Among Swedish high school students is Oz known not least for the essay How to cure a fanatic (2006), which have been distributed free of charge to young people in just over a half million copies, of the order of the teaspoon, in which the author was an honorary member. It analyzes the Oz as well fanatismens nature which presents a solution to the conflict between Palestine and Israel.n”Amos Oz is the voice of reason in the chaos of lies and hysterical rhetoric that characterizes the global debate on the ongoing conflict,” writes Nadine Gordimer in the book's foreword.n"
