By Grossman, DavidTranslated by Rosenberg, Betsy
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.Read more
