To the End of the Land (Vintage International) by David Grossman
To the End of the Land (Vintage International)

Jan Askin, January 19, 2012

This is a highly personal narrative about a woman engaged in the magical thinking that if she takes a trek, she will be unavailable for potential bad news of her son. The reader revisits touchstones of her motherhood raising two sons and managing an imperfect marriage. This is also a political narrative. The reader learns through the context of the narrative the multiple ways that the current untenable state of the nation takes a toll on the Israeli citizen and even more so on the Israeli Arabs. As the mother of two sons, like the protagonist, I found this character's anguish both believable and painful.
