One daughter of a famous author is accusing her late father of “sadistic abuse” — a claim the rest of her nuclear family disputes.
Galia Oz’s autobiography, Something Disguised as Love, came out last weekend, and an Israeli newspaper published a translated excerpt of it, including the surprise allegations against Amos Oz.
The Guardian reports that Fania Oz-Salzberger and Daniel Oz, the siblings of Galia and the other children of Amos, both have written publicly that they remember things much differently than their sister did.
Amos Oz, who died in 2018, published nineteen works of fiction and nonfiction.
He was best known for novels including Black Box, In the Land of Israel, and A Tale of Love and Darkness, which was adapted into a movie by Natalie Portman.
