  • More Than I Love My Life... is a profound testament to the emotional power of fiction and shows why some critics regard Grossman as a candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature.

    Max Liu, Financial Times
  • Immaculately translated by Jessica Cohen, this is another extraordinary novel from Grossman, a book as beautiful and sad as anything you'll read this year.

    Alex Preston, Observer
  • Unforgettable . . . This adds another remarkable achievement to Grossman's long list.

    Publisher's Weekly *Starred Review*
  • In More Than I Love My Life he [Grossman] tells a sombre and affecting tale... [a] delicately crafted novel, crisply translated from the Hebrew by Jessica Cohen.

    Houman Barekat, Sunday Times
  • [Grossman gives] vivid voice to each of the characters as they navigate their pain, both present and past... Grossman's 12 previous novels and five volumes of non-fiction have brought him renown on both sides of the Atlantic. This book will earn him more.

  • [A] concisely devastating novel... [Grossman] has demonstrated again that the novel - elastic, expansive, amenable to painful fragmentation - can provide a space for the most harrowing and resistant material.

    Alex Clark, Guardian
  • Nobody can see the political in the personal like David Grossman. He is an interpreter of hearts and an investigator of social forces. Every book he writes is a revelation.

    Juan Gabriel Vásquez
  • A moving exploration of the power of love, secrets and forgiveness. A sweeping narrative rooted in a deep faith in humanity.

    Hephzibah Anderson, Mail on Sunday
  • Grossman is surely now the greatest living Israeli writer. And his new novel, More Than I Love My Life, is arguable his best yet... what makes the book so powerful and complex is not just the daughters' refusal to forgive, but the way Grossman lets the story unfold.

    David Herman, Jewish Chronicle
  • A meditation on love, on memory, and on the power of storytelling.

    Ángel Gurría-Quitana, Financial Times, *Books of the Year*
