Writing as an instrument of civic engagement and political activism
Over the years, David Grossman has established himself as a refined writer and acute observer of the social transformations affecting his country. His commitment unveils a certain “pilot flame” able to foster a delicate balance of peaceful cohabitation and the hope for a change. Starting from these and other themes at the core of his books, the Israeli author will shed a light on the role played by literature in the contemporary world.
David Grossman is one of the most important and loved writer of our time. He made a name for himself worldwide in 1988 with See Under: Love, followed by, among others, Be My Knife, Someone to Run With, To the End of the Land, Falling Out of Time, Life Plays with Me, all published in Italy by Mondadori.
