The novel centres around 8 hours in the life of the Author (unnamed), a literary celebrity in his forties, who is in Tel Aviv on a stifling hot night to give a reading. Bored, he looks for distraction - and finds copy. On the way he stops at a cafe where he 'bumps into' some of his own characters. In his head he conjures up the life stories of the people he meets, not least Ricky, an equally bored but seductive waitress. Later, even as the reading from his new book is underway, and the obligatory inane questions (" Why do you write? Do you write with a pen or on a computer?) have come and gone -- he weaves stories round the audience and the panel. Afterwards, the Author invites the professional reader for a drink before walking her home. It turns out she lives just opposite, so she goes home and he wanders off into the night. But he returns, climbs the many flights of stairs to the flat, where she lives alone with her cat - and they have a brief but steamy sexual skirmish. Or is this merely a middle-aged writer's fantasy? We never quite know where reality ends and invention begins. He spends the rest of the night wandering, smoking, inventing, regretting and thinking till dawn.The Rhyming of the title refers to the popular couplets of a Hebrew poet, once a household name but now virtually forgotten, whose little rhymes about life punctuate the story. At dawn, the Author reads in yesterday's paper that the poet has just died, almost unnoticed.… (més)

This was nice detour after the navigation of Ulysses. It was bitter cold outdoors and eight hours of an Author's life in Tel Aviv was a fitting escape. ( )

Dit korte verhaal lijkt een spielerei, een vingeroefening van Oz, maar misschien is het dat net niet en is het hem dodelijke ernst. Onzekerheid dus, die zich ook vormelijk uit in voortdurend verschuivende perspectieven, korte stukjes actie en vervolgens weer mijmering. Opvallend is de focus op het groezelige en troosteloze van het bestaan. Uiteindelijk staan de schrijver en het schrijverschap centraal, en blijken alle personages de schrijver zelf, die daarmee de onmacht van zich af schrijft. Geen gemakkelijk boek, maar ik denk wel dat Oz er veel plezier aan heeft beleefd. ( )

This was a difficult book for me. There were parts that I enjoyed but there were also parts that I had a hard time with because of the Israeli/Jewish words, history and names.

This is a book about 8 hours of the Author/Narrator's life including time at a speaking engagement. What I believe is that the entire book is part of the Author trying to answer, "How do you write & why do you write". I think this book tries to answer these two questions by telling us stories hoping we will relate to his life (why) and connecting names, faces, people (how).

I'll have to read this book again to see if I come up with the same opinion. ( )

Imagining the stories of the people we encounter is something we all do. Reminds me of how I used to create stories for the people I saw on the subway. ( )
  JaneLarkin | Sep 24, 2014 |
In a dramatic telling of a single night, Rhyming Life & Death is something of a story, and something of a demonstration of a story's genesis, exploring the wonders and twists of an imagination.

Working from the mind of an author, our narrator for the duration, Oz wanders through his imaginings about an assortment of characters, bringing them together into a world that is hardpressed to be called either imaginary or real. In the end, it doesn't matter. Oz has explored the process and wonder of creation, and given us a story and a show in the process.

Absolutely recommended. ( )

the metafiction of Rhyming Life and Death strikes an abnegating note, with Oz delivering a powerful attack on the whole business of writing and reading. And yet what could be seen as creative suicide ends in calm acceptance. In one of the novel’s many in-jokes, “Rhyming Life and Death” is also the title of a collection by a once well-known, now forgotten poet.

These are the most commonly asked questions. Why do you write? Why do you write the way you do? Are you trying to influence your readers, and, if so, how? What role do your books play? Do you constantly cross out and correct or do you write straight out of your head?

...it is not inappropriate to quote the lines of the veteran poet Tsefania Beit-Halachmi, from his book 'Rhyming Life and Death', which goes something like this:

You'll always find them side by side:
never a groom without a bride.
