See Under Love

David Grossman

Innovative and daring retelling of the horrors of Jewish history, likened to The Tin Drum and One Hundred Years of Solitude Momik, the only child of two survivors, is brought up in Israel by a family seeking to ignore the past. No-one will explain to him what life was like ‘Over There’ or what the ‘Nazi Beast’ is. His 9-year-old mind imagines a Nazi Beast hiding in the cellar, waiting to feed on Jews. 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. See Under- Love is a luminously imaginative and profoundly affecting work.
