עיין ערך אהבהAyen erekh— ahavah ☆ In this powerful novel אהבהAyen erekh PDF #200 by one of Israel's most prominent writers Momik the only child of Holocaust survivors grows up in the shadow of his parents' history Determined to exorcise the Nazi beast from t. In the first part of this book Momik the young son of Holocaust survivors born and raised in Israel says that grownups sometimes call him alter kop which in Yiddish means old head And he is in a way an old man in the body of a child He is intelligent and painfully serious; he has no friends his own age but is drawn to the aging and deranged Holocaust survivors who populate his neighborhood in Jerusalem which believe me is a creepy enough town as it is But though wise beyond his years his experience is still that of a child He understands that some kind of beast the Nazi beast did something terrible that drove everyone out of a wonderful land over there but no one will explain just what that means And so he takes it upon himself to find the beast and destroy it hoping to save the people he loves Alter kop is also a pretty accurate way to describe Israel during that time and even today The country though it just turned sixty this year is steeped in thousands of years of tragedy The Hebrew language is also a strange combination of young and old it is rooted in the Bible and is rich in history and connotation but was essentially frozen in time for about two thousand years though it's since developed at an amazing pace; see for example this cute article in the New York Times Needless to say the Israeli literary tradition is also very young Whereas English fiction writers have thousands and thousands of sources to learn and draw inspiration from when See Under Love was published in 1986 there were probably fewer than a hundred people who had successfully written or were writing fiction in Hebrew So what I think I'm trying to get at here is that this book is about how Grossman learned to tell an incredible impossible story with the vocabulary at his disposal which was essentially the vocabulary of a child And the first part of this book Momik is written in language that a child would use albeit a child surrounded by a bunch of depressing old diasporics This is a novella that stands alone in fact it was later published in Israel as a separate book and I think it's the culmination of Grossman's learning process It is probably the most perfect 80 pages I have ever read It conveys perfectly the paradox of living in Israel even today maintaining a beautiful balance between sturdy Israeliness for example when a paramedic brings Momik's 'grandfather' home and everyone is panicking he says in a dismissive tone that anyone who's been in Israel will be familiar with Don't get excited lady nothing happened what can happen and the fearful ghostliness of life in the shadow of the HolocaustThe following three chapters seem to me to be the storyteller's Momik Grossman way of working up to that perfect story Well it's not exactly THAT story that he initially sets out to write Momik grows up and becomes a writer and decides to try to tell the story of his grandfather Anshel Scheherazade Wasserman who while in a concentration camp wove a tale for a Nazi officer that drew him in so completely that the Nazi was eventually destroyed That tale appears in the third chapter which is excellent and in the fourth and last written in the form of an encyclopedia; I found it too abstract In the second chapter Momik spends most of his time floating face down in the sea which speaks to him in a slightly irritating stream of consciousness all about Bruno Schulz a Polish writer who was shot during the Holocaust But not the real Bruno Schulz no a Bruno Schulz as imagined by Momik a Schulz who escapes death and swims away with the salmon That part to me read as if the writer had taken some pill to get his juices flowing and though possibly a necessary part of the process I kind of wished Grossman hadn't felt the need to include it in the final book I also have uite a bit of criticism re Grossman's portrayal of female characters he always makes sure to emphasize that they're unattractive; none of them are very intelligent and certainly not intellectual; the book talks a lot about art and creation and the only thing he lets a woman create is a fetus I'm giving the book five stars though because a the first chapter really truly is amazing and the third chapter which seems to be the story he was actually shooting for is also great and b he is so incredibly ambitious that I'm willing to forgive the parts that don't work especially since the availability of good fiction editors in Israel at the time was probably even limited than the availability of writers I don't know if the English translation gets all that across because the book is very much about language I read it in Hebrew and I'm gonna brag about it because it took me than 6 weeks to read the damn thing Maybe I'll check it out sometime but I think it'll probably be a while before I have the mental strength to pick this book up again Download ¹ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ã David Grossman

This book shouldn't hold together as well as it does So many disparate elements that to me shouldn't be attempting to work in cohesion Child of holocaust survivorscynical israeli author attempting to write about the holocaust whilst straightening his own lifepost modern travailscamp inmate writer going all 1001 and nights on a camp commandantin a lesser writer's hands this story woulve collapsed into an amorphous mess falling under the weight ofg tis own ambition But Grossman succeeds He details a story that confronts the incomprehensibleand fails But this failure is part of the mastery Grossman lays bare so many different facets of holocaust comprehension the schmaltz the dire pathos the shame the denial in a way i didnt think possible Some feat More so than any israeli author ive read slightly edging out Amos Oz and leagues ahead of Yehoshua Grossman presents a story that oddly enough is only incidentally israeli and jewish integrally but not primarily he gives us a story of humanityexhausting and draining but beautiful in its pain Read it
