Internationally acclaimed Israeli novelist

The Holocaust's Carrier Pigeon:
Reflections on Writing & Memory


graphicDavid Grossman, a leading Israeli writer of his generation, was born in Jerusalem in 1954. The author of eight internationally acclaimed novels, including See Under: Love (1986) and To theEnd of the Land (2008), as well as several non-fiction and children’s books, his work has been translated into thirty languages. He is the recipient of Israel’s most prestigious literary awards—the Sapir Prize and the Bialik Prize—as well as many international honors. Grossman's writing has examined some of the most difficult aspects of Israeli and Jewish identity, from the struggle with Holocaust memory to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which he explores through the lens of human emotion and everyday experience. His latest novel, A Horse Walks into a Bar, deals with human suffering, society, truth, and love.
