Product description

Review

"Grossman is more than just another talented writer: Like Václav Havel, he is a moralist, a man with a conscience whose words cry out for absolute truth and fariness." --Newsday

"One of contemporary literature's most versatile and absorbing writers." --San Francisco Chronicle

"No other Israeli writer so far has approached the touchy subject [os Israeli Arabs]] with such compassion, or looked at it with, so to speak, bifocal eyes, Israeli and Palestenian." --The New York Review of Books

"An extended rumination on the struggle and the thrill of shaping words in to stories and reclaiming their meaning and beauty." --The Nation

"The Israeli Orwell . . . [Grossman] is a writer for the world stage, and the world has much need of him." --The Buffalo News

"[Grossman] asks the most difficult and searching questions. . . . His words have a tremendous, forceful eloquence about them, from first to last. . . . A delight to read . . . powerfully humanistic." --The Independent (UK)

About the Author

David Grossman has received several international awards for his writing, including the Premio Grinzane and the Premio Mondelo for The Zigzag Kid. He is the author of several novels and children's books, and a play. He lives in Jerusalem with his wife and children.
