Product Description

Review

"One of the most ambitious, generous, beautiful, indispensable books I've been fortunate enough to read" (Jonathan Safran Foer Guardian)

"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)

Book Description

Innovative and daring retelling of the horrors of Jewish history, likened to The Tin Drum and One Hundred Years of Solitude

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'

Guardian

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
