Leading Israeli intellectual Amos Oz was awarded the annual Prince of Asturias prize for literature on Wednesday in recognition of his works denouncing extremism and advocating Israeli-Palestinian peace. The jury meeting in the northern city of Oviedo said Oz had "contributed to turning the Hebrew language into a brilliant literary instrument while revealing certain truths about the most pressing and universal realities of our times, with as much attention to defending peace between different communities as denouncing all forms of extremism." Oz, the author of 18 novels and numerous articles and essays, is a prominent advocate of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His work has been translated into numerous languages, and his essays have appeared in The New York Review of Books. Oz, 68, was born in Jerusalem and has lived in the town of Arad since 1986. Much of his fiction is centered around the Jerusalem house he grew up in at 18 Amos Street.
