“Never before have I been so moved by a work of fiction! David Grossman has brought to life two of the most intense characters, Ora and Avram, who struggle with the effects of war, love, fear, and friendship as they make an epic, soul-baring walk through the Israeli countryside. This is an extraordinary, unforgettable story!”
