The Book of Intimate Grammar / David Grossman (1994)

March 20, 2009
David Grossman is among Israel’s greatest novelists. This book, in addition to his “See Under: Love”, are wonderful introductions to his work.  Intimate Grammar tracks the story of a poor adolescent in the period of the Six Day War, offering a glimpse into the two Israels of the period: the victor in the Six Day War, and the society still coming to terms with those on its fringes.
