I just finished a book of essays by David Grossman called Writing in the Dark. In it, he speaks about how he views literature, how he writes in view of the "situation" in Israel, and the bleak outlook of the state of Israel as it exists today. It's a very depressing book, but I already knew what to expect of this book as this author lost a 21-year-old son in the Lebanon war. Ironically, he is one of Israel's most outspoken peaceniks.
Anyway, my plan is to read more of his books. I'm going to try again with See: Under Love as I never made it through that book the first time.
I really liked that book. An Israeli friend of mine (closer to my daughter's age) called that book "amazing". I'll keep an eye out on BookMooch for any other Israeli fiction we might need to share. :)
i would love to hear more about his ideas and writng. I, too, am discouraged about the state of affairs in Israel- the conflict with the palestinians seems never-ending.
Which of Paul Auster's books is dedicated to Grossman? I haven't read any of Auster's books yet, but they look like the kinds of books I'd enjoy.
Yeah. I remember when I used to follow Israeli news very, very closely. Now I only want to hear the good news from Israel. It's there; it's just that it's not as well publicized as the bad news. :(
i think his Book Of Illusions is his best work.
p.s. "Someone To Run With" has been made into a film.
