Brazilian bookshop named after Amos Oz

Renowned Israeli writer surprised to find one of his biggest fans in Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Israeli writer Amos Oz is very popular around the globe, but he too was surprised to discover that one of his biggest fans lives on the other end of the world – in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The fan, who owns a bookstore and an Internet café, decided to rename his business “Oz” after the Israeli author.

On a sign at the front of the store he placed a large picture of the novelist, and inside the shop one can find additional pictures alongside quotes from his books, as well as Oz novels translated into Portuguese.

Last week, the fan traveled seven hours to Sao Paolo to meet his favorite writer, who arrived in the Brazilian city to attend an event held in his honor by the Israeli Consulate.

Consul-General Ilan Sztulman introduced the two, and the guest showed the excited Oz pictures of his shop.
