Born in Jerusalem in 1954, David Grossman is one of the leading Israeli writers of his generation. He has been wrestling with the trauma of war and the prospects for peace, as well as love, jealousy, and family relationships for ore 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 seventeen books that have been translated into forty-five langauges 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.
