May 4, 1939. Born in Jerusleum 

December 28, 2018. Died in Tel Aviv

from The Times of Israel - Amos Oz, ‘Israel’s greatest writer,’ advocate for peace, dies at 79

My Post on his final novel, Judas, and two of his short stories

Amos Oz, a giant of Israeli letters for his works that explore human nature and the Israeli experience, died Friday at 79 from cancer, his daughter wrote on Twitter.
The Jerusalem-born author, an early proponent of a two-state solution with the Palestinians, spoke out countless times during Israeli military operations in Lebanon and Gaza, urging dialogue and restraint.
Oz, an Israel Prize laureate, was the author of dozens of Hebrew-language books including novels, novellas, short-story collections and essays, as well as around 500 pieces for Israeli and foreign periodicals. From Haaretz December 29, 2018
