David Grossman is an exceptional writer with a rare honesty...
Israeli novelist, essayist and political commentator David Grossman has won international acclaim for his writing including the Emet Prize, the Premio Grinzane and Premio Mondelo. He is the author of seven novels and two groundbreaking works of journalism, The Yellow Wind and Sleeping on a Wire, acclaimed yet controversial studies of the Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.
In 2003 a collection of articles chronicling the escalating violence in the Middle East was published as Death As a Way of Life. Yet for Grossman this turmoil does not determine all. Though set against the broad strokes of political conflict, his novels and stories are intimate and often sensuous explorations of the innermost refuge of the human psyche.
