Borderkitchen welcomes David Grossman
On 6 June 2010 the acclaimed Israeli author David Grossman will be visiting BorderKitchen on 6 June to talk about his latest novel Until the End of the Land.
Grossman is the author of seven novels, a play, short stories, novellas, youth and children’s books and the recipient of numerous awards. Some of his most acclaimed previous works include The Zig-Zag Kid (1996), Her Body Knows (2004) and his recent political and cultural essays Writing in the Dark (2008).
Grossman’s intricate, structurally complex, daring and innovative writing style tends to incorporate ‘injustice’ as a central theme to his stories, regularly expressing the harsh truth of Israel’s often war-torn reality. While writing Until the End of the Land, Grossman’s son was killed by a missile during a military operation. Though devastated, Grossman went on to finish the book. “Most of it was already written. What changed…was the resonance of the reality in which the final version was written,” Grossman reveals.
Until the End of the Land is the story of a young soldier assigned to a major military operation.
"Mr. Grossman’s balance between the poetic and the profane is perfect...." - The New York Times Book Review
