David Grossman won the 2017 Man Booker International Prize for his novel A Horse Walks into a Bar, a “magnificently comic and sucker-punch-tragic excursion into brilliance” (New York Times). Born in Jerusalem, Grossman is the author of numerous works of fiction, nonfiction, and children’s literature, including To the End of the Land, a meditation on war, family, and loss, praised as “one of those few novels that feel as though they have made a difference to the world” (New York Times) His many international honors include the French Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Israel’s Emet Prize, and the just announced 2018 Israel Prize.
