David Grossman is an Israeli author of fiction, nonfiction, and youth and children’s literature, whose books have been translated into numerous languages.
“The Yellow Wind”, his incisive nonfiction work on the Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, met with acclaim abroad and sparked dialogue and controversy at home.
He was one of the presenters of “Cat in a Sack”, a children’s program that was broadcast from 1970 to 1984, on which his book, “Duel”, was first aired as a radio drama. Along with Dani Eldar, he ran the popular absurdist radio series, “Stutz” (Yiddish: “that can happen”). In 1984, Grossman won the Prime Minister’s Prize for Creative Work.
On February 2, 2007, he was awarded the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa by the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.
