In autumn 1993, the Oslo Agreements were signed by Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, marking the beginning of promise for a constructive peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The ten years that followed were charted first by hope and optimism only to deteriorate into revenge and violence. Throughout this decade David Grossman has published articles in the American and European press, written in a personal voice - father, husband, peace activist, novelist - as he witnesses devastating events, he cries out with a prophetic wisdom, imploring both sides to return to sanity, to negotiations. The publication of this collection of articles will mark ten years to the dream of Oslo.
David Grossman is the author of two previous groundbreaking works of journalism, THE YELLOW WIND and SLEEPING ON A WIRE. He has written seven novels, as well as several children's books; and a play. His most recent novel is SOMEONE TO RUN WITH. He lives in Jerusalem.
