Product description


"'There isn't a more interesting novelist in the West today' HARPER'S MAGAZINE 'We should all thank heaven that the world has such writers in it' LOS ANGELES TIMES 'A writer of passionate honesty, unafraid to ask terrible questions' NADINE GORDIMER 'A writer who has been, for nearly two decades, one of the most original and talented not only in his own country but anywhere.' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW 'A writer of devastating power.' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY"

From the Inside Flap

"Let my soul die with the Philistines"

Samson the hero; a brave warrior, leader of men and Nazarite of God? Or a misfit given to whoring and lust, who failed to fulfil his destiny? In Lion’s Honey, award-winning writer David Grossman takes on one of the most vivid and controversial characters in the Bible. Revisiting Samson’s famous battle with the lion, his many women and his betrayal by them all – including the only one he ever loved –Grossman gives us a provocative new take on the story and its climax, Samson’s final act of death, bringing down a temple on himself and three thousand Philistines.

In exhilarating and lucid prose, Grossman reveals the journey of a single, lonely and tortured soul who never found a true home in the world, who was uncomfortable in his very body and who, some might say, was the precursor of today’s suicide bombers.
