Yoel HoffmannââIsraelâs celebrated avant-garde geniusâ (The Forward)âsupplies the magic missing link between the infinitesimal and the infinite
Part novel and part memoir, Yoel Hoffmannâs Moods is flooded with feelings, evoked by his family, losses, loves, the soulâs hidden powers, old phone books, and life in the Galileeâwith its every scent, breeze, notable dog, and odd neighbor. Carrying these shards is a general tenderness, accentuated by a new dimension brought along by âthat great big pill of Prozac.â
Beautifully translated by Peter Cole, Moods is fiction for lovers of poetry and poetry for lovers of fictionâa small marvel of a book, and with its pockets of joy, a curiously cheerful book by an author who once compared himself to âa praying mantis inclined to melancholy.â
