After seven years with no communication, a divorcee writes a letter to her ex-husband begging for help with their rebellious son. That single epistle opens a flood gate of correspondence that leads to her ex- and current husband rivaling not only for her loyalty but for her son''s as well.

From the Publisher:

Seven years after their divorce, Ilana breaks the bitter silence with a letter to Alex, a world-renowned authority on fanaticism, begging for help with their rebellious adolescent son, Boaz. One letter leads to another, and so evolves a correspondence between Ilana and Alex, Alex and Michel (Ilana's Moroccan husband), Alex and his Mephistophelian Jerusalem lawyer—a correspondence between mother and father, stepfather and stepson, father and son, each pleading his or her own case.

The grasping, lyrical, manipulative, loving Ilana has stirred things up. Now, her former husband and her present husband have become rivals not only for her loyalty but for her son's as well.

Annotation:
THE BLACK BOX, Oz's novel of domestic strife, was a record-breaking best-seller in Israel when it was published there in January 1987, remaining on the best-seller lists longer than any previous book.
Author Bio
Amos Oz
Born Amos Klausner, Oz was raised in Jerusalem and attended an Orthodox Jewish school. Rebelling against his conservative and domineering scholar-father, he left home at 14, changed his name, and joined a kibbutz, where he espoused the leftist politics of David Ben-Gurion. He served in the Israeli army and studied at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, becoming skilled as a writer and teaching English and literature in the kibbutz school. His novels are rooted in Israeli society, and he is both a fearless innovator and a realist, always deeply involved in Israel's politics and struggle for survival.
