Description

In this compassionate and genre-defying drama the internationally acclaimed author of "To the End of the Land "weaves an incandescent tale of parental grief. A powerful distillation of the experience of understanding and acceptance, and of art's triumph over death, "Falling Out of Time" is part play, part prose, and pure poetry. As Grossman's characters ultimately find solace and hope through their communal acts of mourning, readers will find comfort in their clamorous vitality, and in the gift of storytelling--a realm where loss is not an absence, but a life force in its own right.
