David Grossman was born in Jerusalem in 1954 and lives there with his wife and children.
He has written two works of journalism, The Yellow Wind and Sleeping on a Wire. Throughout the 10 years following the 1993 Oslo Agreements, he published many articles in the European and American press, effectively charting a decade’s demise from hope and optimism to vengeance and violence; a collection of these articles was published in April 2003, on the anniversary of the Oslo Agreements, as Death as a Way of Life.
His works of fiction include The Smile of the Lamb, See Under: Love, Be My Knife, and Lovers and Strangers, among others. His most recent books to appear in English are Her Body Knows: Two Novellas and Lion’s Honey: The Myth of Samson.
Grossman has been presented with numerous awards including Chevalier de lâ Ordre des Artes et des Lettres, the Valumbrosa Prize, Prix Eliette Von Karajan, Premio Mo
