    A fevered storyteller and a captive audience revisit the past together in each of David Grossman's new novellas, trying to make sense of a betrayal that neither one can put to rest. In 'Frenzy,' a respectable man lets his sister-in-lawinto a secret nightmare as he reveals to her his conviction that his wife is having an affair. In the title novella, a successful but embittered novelist visits her mother, who is in the last stages of cancer. Gradually it becomes clear that, for all its anger, the daughter's story and the writing process itself have led her to a new appreciation of her mother's difficult character, and her own. These two novellas mark a new departure for the acclaimed novelist.

    • Published: September 2010
    A novel of extraordinary power about family life and the cost of war from the acclaimed Israeli writer (See Under: Love; The Smile of the Lamb; Be My Knife; Someone to Run With). Ora, a middle-aged Israeli mother, is on the verge of celebrating her son Ofer's release from army service when he returns to the front for a major offensive. In a fit of preemptive grief and magical thinking, she sets out for a hike in the Galilee, leaving no forwarding information for the 'notifiers' who might darken her door with the worst possible news. Recently estranged from her husband, Ilan, she drags along an unlikely companion: their former best friend and her former lover Avram, once a brilliant artistic spirit. Their walk has a 'war and peace' rhythm, as their conversation places the most hideous trials of war next to the joys and anguish of raising children. Never has there been seen so clearly the reality and surreality of daily life in Israel, the currents of ambivalence about war within one household, and the burdens that fall on each generation anew. 582p.
