"See Under: Loveis one of the most disturbing novels I've ever read...When I was already well into it, I'd circle it warily before picking it up again . . . then fall instantly under its spell, for it is wickedly readable" (Edmund White)
"This novel is so innovative, yet at the same time so readable, that I can only say that it gives the lie to that critical cliche. It is a tour de force of pure storytelling, and a demonstration of both the need for story and the limits of all particular stories. I consider it a triumph" (Guardian)
From the Back Cover
'Grossman makes something dazzling and imaginative in engaging head-on with the worst horrors of the twentieth century... It is a tour de force of pure storytelling'
Momik is the only child of two survivors seeking to ignore the past and scrape together a new life in Israel. No-one will explain to him what the 'Nazi Beast' is or what life was like 'Over There'. Momik imagines a Nazi Beast hiding in the cellar, waiting to feed on Jews, and increasingly shields himself from all feeling and attachment. But through the stories his great-uncle tells him - the same stories he told the commandant of a Nazi concentration camp - Momik becomes learns about love and becomes "infected with humanity".
'Wickedly readable. It crackles with sparks of artistic invention' Edmund White
