In this powerful novel by one of Israel’s most prominent writers, Momik, the only child of Holocaust survivors, grows up in the shadow of his parents’ history. Determined to exorcise the Nazi “beast” from their shattered lives and prepare for a second holocaust he knows is coming, Momik increasingly shields himself from all feeling and attachment. But through the stories his great-uncle tells him—the same stories he told the commandant of a Nazi concentration camp—Momik, too, becomes “infected with humanity.” Grossman’s masterly fusing of vision, thought, and emotion make See Under: Love a luminously imaginative and profoundly affecting work.

Praise for See Under: LOVE

"In a few nearly mythic books, such as Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, Günter Grass's The Tin Drum, Gabriel García Máquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, large visions of history get hold in innovative ways. See Under: LOVE may be a worthy successor to this small but awesome canon."—Edmund White, The New York Times Book Review

"A world-class work of fiction, one of the most profound, compelling, and ingenious novels that I have read in years."—Tom LeClair, USA Today

"A dazzling work of imagination."—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
