An aging Israeli author is making the rounds of local book groups. The brief book, pages, is translated from the Hebrew. We are treated to his mental peregrinations as the author sits there listening to his introduction, a reading of his work and a critic's response before he makes his remarks. Mostly he does what authors do: He also tries to pick up the waitress in the coffee shop no success and, after the event, the woman who reads his work.

He gives us both scenarios. This is fiction, after all, and the author is asking us "why should you believe everything I write? But the greatest part of his literary career has been given to fiction, stories and above all novels.

Here he writes a long story, or perhaps novella about what it is to be a well- known author, and how the imagination of such an author works. The author at the center of this work who attends a reading and discussion of his latest book engages in a game of imagining the lives of all the people he glances.

One of these is the reader of the poems a woman who reads with special intensity and emotion who he then walks home. He has to decide whether or not he will have a small romantic adventure with her. He leaves her and then returns. And the description of their encounter is in a sense the emotional heart of the story. There is a detailed analysis of his feelings during the encounter. The element of psychologizing is strong here and throughout this imaginative enterprise.

One problem however for me was that characters imagined which we are told are imagined do not have the compelling power of characters we believe real. The work in spite of its fine and precise language and power of perception thus reads as a kind of exercise. It does not compel. And the writer who plays these games seems far less sympathetic than say the child depicted in a 'Tale of Love and Darkness. This slim, inventive novel covers an 8-hour period in which a well-known author referred to, simply, as the Author participates in a reading from his recently published book.

All the while, the Author concocts fictional personalities and stories about the real people he encounters during the course of the evening. Through it all, the Author questions why he writes and discovers his art has become his only connection to the world: He is covered in shame and confusion because he observes them all from a distance, from the wings, as if they all exist only for him to make use of in his books.

And with the shame comes a profound sadness that he is always an outsider, unable to touch or to be touched Oz's deconstruction of the creative process is unsettling because it reveals just how quickly we, the readers, will adopt a story line as a kind of "reality," at least with respect to the protagonist.
