It’s a great day for America: not only do we get to fulfill our civic duty and wear cool stickers (and even get free doughnuts, if you know where to go), but the English edition of Amos Oz’s newest novel comes out today!
As intriguing as the book cover looks on the screen, it doesn’t fully capture the glory of the physical hardcover. That bronze color you see on the lettering for Judas? It’s actually a lustrous gold in real life, and the overall effect of this juxtapositional gilded simplicity is practically breathtaking. (And the content of the novel ain’t bad, either.) So stop in your local bookstore and grab a copy to read while you’re waiting in line at your polling place — because you are voting today, right? RIGHT???
