David Grossman

Grossman_DavidIt’s hard to believe it’s been four years since David Grossman’s last visit to the JCCSF.  We caught up with him on Friday, May 9 when he came to town to talk to Peter Orner about his meditation on parental grief, Falling Out of Time.  Stripped of conventional narration and description, Grossman’s book reads more like a play than a novel, but with all the dialogue written in free verse.  He read passages in the original and in translation and spoke about the limits of language, as well as caught us up to date on the situation in Israel.  It was a moving evening.
