There were many reasons to be sad about the situation in Israel and Lebanon in July and August, but this post really hit home for me in a way that news stories and stories about multitudes of people dying on both sides did not. I will have to read some of David Grossman's published work at some point.
Just found your blog through an ask Moxie comment.
I know this totally isn't the point of the post, it really is sad about David Grossman's son.I just wanted to recommend Someone to Run with. It's a great great book. I've read some of his others but this was seriously the best so far, by far.
He's a great story teller and it's very sad that he had to lose a son to protect Israel.
