David Grossman's fine novel To the End of the Land is to appear soon in English. The New York Review of Books has just published a section, and they've unerringly chosen the wrong one and added an irrelevant but nasty photograph. Still, it is a fine book, and the more people read it, the better.
I'm taking the occasion to re-link to my review of it from 2008, here. The only change I'd make in light of the intervening two years is to note that the extravagant reception the book had in Israel back in 2008 then petered out. At the time the book was heralded as the most important novel of its decade. I'm not certain that still stands.
Though it is on my short list.
