Product Description

Review

"Grossman raises questions about the nature of grief and mourning and demonstrates, once again, his rare gift of storytelling, a realm where loss is not merely an absence but a life force of its own." (Jewish Chronicle)

"A harrowing testimony to grief… It’s a measure of Grossman’s clarity of thought and his theatrical timing that one reaches its end and feels, in some small way, glad to have been in his characters’ company however grim the road they travel." (Rosemary Goring Glasgow Sunday Herald)

"A book that needed to be written." (Kate Kellaway Observer)

"On the page the book resembles a play, or a prose poem, possessing at times the qualities of a religious or mystical text... Falling Out of Time is short, and clearly a deeply personal book, but its importance and impact ought not to be underestimated." (Ian Sansom Guardian)

"The greatest Israeli writer of his generation." (Lucy Daniel Telegraph)

Book Description

Following the magisterial To the End of the Land, the universally acclaimed Israeli author brings us an incandescent fable of parental grief - slim, elemental, a powerfully distilled experience of understanding and acceptance, and of art’s triumph over death.
