To the End of the Land - David Grossman

TO THE END OF THE LAND (Knopf, $26.95), by David Grossman, is a tightly-constructed novel centering on Ora, who flees her home to avoid any bad news about her son, a soldier serving in the Israel Defense Forces and in the direct line of fire in Lebanon. Ora goes to the Galilee, on a hike with an estranged and troubled friend, where she recounts the many stories of her family and past. The stories, and Grossman’s intricate and beautiful prose, weave together the greater and lesser dramas of a family, inextricably tied to the larger framework of politics and the shattering reality of a nation at war.
