In “Something Disguised as Love,” Israeli author Galia Oz claims that the literary icon “serially abused” her physically and emotionally until his death in 2018.

Israeli author Galia Oz, daughter of world-renowned literary icon Amos Oz, alleged in interviews on Sunday that her “sadistic” father “serially abused” her physically and emotionally, until his death in 2018.

The alleged abuse is detailed in her new autobiography, Something Disguised as Love, which has shaken the public image of her father, considered one the country’s greatest novelists.

In the book, Oz describes her childhood as steeped in “terrorist behavior [by both parents] … [T]he threat of violence was always in the air.”
