In this powerful novel by one of Israel's most prominent writers, Momik, the only child of Holocaust survivors, grows up in the shadow of his parents' history. Determined to exorcise the Nazi "beast" from their shattered lives and prepare for a second holocaust he knows is coming, Momik increasingly shields himself from all feeling and attachment. But through the stories his great-uncle tells him'the same stories he told the commandant of a Nazi concentration camp'Momik, too, becomes "infected with humanity." Grossman's masterly fusing of vision, thought, and emotion make See Under: Love a luminously imaginative and profoundly affecting work
Sleeping on a wire : conversations with Palestinians in Israel by David Grossman( Book )

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

Falling out of time by David Grossman( Book )
11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Following his magisterial To the End of the Land, the universally acclaimed Israeli author brings us an incandescent fable of parental grief''concise, elemental, a powerfully distilled experience of understanding and acceptance, and of art's triumph over death. In Falling Out of Time, David Grossman has created a genre-defying drama''part play, part prose, pure poetry''to tell the story of bereaved parents setting out to reach their lost children. It begins in a small village, in a kitchen, where a man announces to his wife that he is leaving, embarking on a journey in search of their dead son. The man''called simply Walking Man''paces in ever-widening circles around the town. One after another, all manner of townsfolk fall into step with him (the Net-Mender, the Midwife, the Elderly Math Teacher, even the Duke), each enduring his or her own loss. The walkers raise questions of grief and bereavement: Can death be overcome by an intensity of speech or memory' Is it possible, even for a fleeting moment, to call to the dead and free them from their death' Grossman's answer to such questions is a hymn to these characters, who ultimately find solace and hope in their communal act of breaching death's hermetic separateness. For the reader, the solace is in their clamorous vitality, and in the gift of Grossman's storytelling''a realm where loss is not merely an absence but a life force of its own.

Lion's honey : the myth of Samson by David Grossman( Book )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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. Revisiting Samson's famous battle with the lion, his many women and his betrayal by them all - including the only one he ever loved - Grossman gives us a provocative new take on the story and its climax, Samson's final act of death, bringing down a temple on himself and three thousand Philistines." "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."--Jacket
Writing in the dark by David Grossman( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Throughout his career, David Grossman has been a voice for peace and reconciliation between Israel and its Arab citizens and neighbors. In six new essays on politics and culture in Israel today, he addresses the conscience of a country that has lost faith in its leaders and its ideals. This collection includes an already famous speech concerning the disastrous Second Lebanon War of 2006, the war that took the life of Grossman's twenty-year-old son, Uri. Moving, humane, clear-sighted, and courageous, touching on literature and artistic creation as well as politics and philosophy, these writings are a cri de coeur from a heroic voice of reason at a time of uncertainty and despair."--Jacket
Lion's honey the myth of Samson by David Grossman( Recording )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member 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."

"What went wrong after Oslo? How can Israelis and Palestinians make peace? How has the violence changed their lives, and their souls? For over ten years, David Grossman, one of Israel's great fiction writers, has addressed these questions in a series of passionate essays and articles, writing not only as one of his country's most respected novelists and commentators, but as a husband and father and peace activist bitterly disappointed in the leaders of both sides. This edition has six new essays ending on a cautious note of hope with an essay on why he joined the Geneva initiative. Book jacket."--Jacket
