To the End of the Land by David Grossman.. The Israeli novelist’s tough, beautiful novel about the meaning of home is exceptional, and made the more so for how eerily his real life parallels events foretold in the fiction. How does the world work?

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"It is a testament to Grossman’s novelistic talent, indeed perhaps his genius, that “To the End of the Land” manages to create and dramatize a world that gives both the reality and the echo their full due. He weaves the essences of private life into the tapestry of history with deliberate and delicate skill; he has created a panorama of breathtaking emotional force, a masterpiece of pacing, of dedicated storytelling, with characters whose lives are etched with extraordinary, vivid detail.."

The NY Times

"Grossman’s writing has a lyrical intensity that deeply connects the reader to his characters’ inner states, but he has also been a journalist throughout his career, and he grounds his fiction in facts.."

The New Yorker
