The Lover, by A. B. Yehoshua

This is the third book by Yehoshua I've read - bought one each time I went to Israel - and I liked it again very much. Yehoshua's writing is always excellent, it creates a characteristic rhythm, slow and enchanting. The story deals with love and family relationships, and if it has some weakness, I think it's when it tries to "explain" the lover's character, which I think that, as a catalyst for the action and the other character's feelings, should remain more undefined. But it's a very good book, even if not as good as the other two I've read by him - Mr. Mani and A Journey to the End of the Millenium.
