Sleeping on a wire : conversations with Palestinians in Israel by David Grossman ( Book )
24 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,133 libraries worldwide
The Yellow Wind, David Grossman's firsthand inquiry into the predicament of the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza, was an international sensation in 1987; Nadine Gordimer called it "a revelation of the Israeli-Arab tragedy...a work by a writer of passionate self-honesty, unafraid to ask terrible questions." Now, in Sleeping on a Wire, Grossman brings into the open the perilous balancing act of the "Arabs of '48," those Palestinians who live as citizens within Israel's borders. Fully eighteen percent of Israelis are Arab; indeed, some areas of the Galilee and the south are almost entirely populated by Arabs. The intifadah has given these individuals a renewed awareness of their identity as Palestinians, yet their acquiescence in Israel's sovereignty sets them apart from their cousins over the Green Line.

"Samson the hero; a brave warrior, leader of men and Nazarite of God? Or a misfit given to whoring and lust, who failed to fulfill his destiny? In Lion's Honey, David Grossman takes on one of the most vivid and controversial characters in the Bible.

"Grossman reveals the journey of a single, lonely and tortured soul who never found a true home in the world, who was uncomfortable in his very body and who, some might say, was the precursor of today's suicide bombers."--BOOK JACKET.

Lion's honey : the myth of Samson by David Grossman ( Book )
20 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Hebrew and held by 242 libraries worldwide
"There are few other Bible stories with so much drama and action, narrative fireworks and raw emotion, as we find in the tale of Samson: the battle with the lion; the three hundred burning foxes; the women he bedded and the one woman that he loved; his betrayal by all the women in his life, from his mother to Delilah; and, in the end, his murderous suicide, when he brought the house down on himself and three thousand Philistines. "Yet beyond the wild impulsiveness, the chaos, the din, we can make out a life story that is, at bottom, the tortured journey of a single, lonely and turbulent soul who never found, anywhere, a true home in the world, whose very body was a harsh place of exile. "For me, this discovery, this recognition, is the point at which the myth - for all its grand images, its larger-than-life adventures - slips silently into the day-to-day existence of each of us, into our most private moments, our buried secrets."
