As a part time book reviewer I read many books each year but it is rare to come across a book that is quite simply a masterpiece. I think it may be one of the finest books out of thousands of novels that I have read in the last 20 years. It is a good or better than Franzen or Rushdie and there is no British writer who can compete in this league. Grossman's understanding of the working of our most profound relationships cannot be matched. He deserves a Nobel for work of this quality. It must become a classic. With the passing of Bellow and the decline of Roth this is simply the best writing that you could find.To The End of the Land
