Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this powerful novel by one of Israels 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.” Grossmans masterly fusing of vision, thought, and emotion make See Under: Love a luminously imaginative and profoundly affecting work.

Synopsis:

Momik is the only child of two Holocaust survivors. Something in Momik pushes him into strange, perilous confrontations with the world of pain and love he is determined to avoid. By listening to a relative's special stories for and about children, Momik becomes "infected with humanity" and with the intense loving-kindness that exists alongside the horrors of his ancestry.
