To the end of the land by David Grossman( Book )

40 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 2,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ora, amiddle-aged Israeli mother, is on the verge of celebrating her son Ofer's release from army service when he returns to the front for a major offensive. This a book of mourning for those not dead, a mother's lament for life during a wartime that has no end in sight. At the same time, it's joyously and almost painfully alive, full to the point of rupture with the emotions and the endless quotidian details of a few deeply imagined lives. Ora, the Israeli mother in Grossman's story, is surrounded by men: Ilan and Avram, friends and lovers who form with her a love triangle whose intimacies and alliances fit no familiar shape, and their sons Adam and Ofer, one for each father, from whom Ora feels her separation like a wound. When Ofer, freshly released from his army service, volunteers for an action in the West Bank instead of going on a planned hike with his mother in the north of Israel, she goes instead with Avram, who fathered Ofer but has never met him and has lived in near-seclusion since being tortured as a prisoner in the Yom Kippur war three decades before. As they walk and carefully reveal themselves to each other again, Grossman builds an overwhelming portrait of, as one character says, the thousands of moments and hours and days that make one person in the world, and of the power of war to destroy such a person, even or especially when they survive its cruel demands

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 )

35 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Hebrew and held by 1,094 WorldCat member 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. 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."--BOOK JACKET

Writing in the dark by David Grossman( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 412 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
