David Grossman

VectorBorn in Jerusalem in 1954, David Grossman is one of Israel’s leading writers. He has been wrestling with the trauma of war and the prospects for peace, as well as love, jealousy and family relationships for more than three decades. In his first novel, See Under: Love, he grappled with the legacy of the Holocaust. In The Yellow Wind he foresaw the explosive first intifada, and in his bestselling To the End of the Land, he hauntingly portrayed a mother's love for her son in a time of conflict. He is the author of nineteen books that have been translated into forty-five languages around the world. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, and several of his books have been adapted to international stage and screen productions. The opera based on Falling Out of Time is scheduled to premiere at Carnegie Hall in May 2022. Winner of the 2017 Man Booker International Prize for Horse Walks into A Bar, and the 2018 Israel Prize, his latest novel, More than I Love My Life, has been published internationally in 2020-21 to his best reviews ever. The Frankfurter Allgemeine writes, “David Grossman is simply the greatest living novelist.”
