Product description

Review

"Unrelentingly claustrophobic… The violence that A Horse Walks Into A Bar explores is more private and intimate. Its central interest is not the vicious treatment of vulnerable others but the cruelty that wells up within families, circulates like a poison in tight-knit groups, and finally turns inward against the self… Strategic weaving together of manic humour and tears… Searing and poignant." (Stephen Greenblatt New York Review of Books)

"Brilliant, blistering… With Dovaleh, Grossman has created a character who’s captivating and horrific and a stand-up routine that’s disgusting and authentically human. I can hardly say how the book achieves its bewitching effects. It all happened so fast." (Ken Kalfus Washington Post)

"Unless pop lyricists have the lock on the Novel prize in literature from now on, then a leading future candidate must be David Grossman." (Mark Lawson Guardian, Book of the Year)

"Much of it is extremely funny, but it’s also tightly controlled and carefully paced… Few writers hold a more unflinching mirror up to Israeli society than Grossman… [A Horse Walks into a Bar] is a work of sombre brilliance and disquieting rage, an unsparing exploration of the seductive spell of escapism and “the corruption that is in cynicism.”" (Rebecca Abrams Financial Times)

"This is a virtuoso piece of writing, a whirlwind of laughter and tears that sucks you in and makes you holds your breath." (John Harding Daily Mail)

"A writerly tour de force that would be unbearably painful, were it not also so generously humane." (Lucy Hughes-Hallett New Statesman, Book of the Year)

"A short, shocking masterpiece." (Adam Lively Sunday Times)

"David Grossman tells a story that is so emotional that you feel obliged to look away from time to time or to even put away the book once in a while so you can breathe again and so you can prepare yourself for the next confrontation with yourself and the world around you." (De Morgen)

"David Grossman’s new novel runs on a high voltage line, operated by a frantic, mesmerising and almost unbearable energy. An ongoing feeling of astonishment accompanies you throughout the read, and it is linked to Grossman’s bravado and to his innovation as a storyteller… A Horse Walks into a Bar…is unlike anything Grossman has written, or anything I have read. It is a packed explosive, multi-resonant, daring and exciting." (Omri Herzog Ha’aretz)

"Grossman’s new novel depicts a cruel demeaning stand-up act…and yet this is not a book about the violence of man but rather on the human inside - and this is what turns Grossman to a truly great author." (Nurit Gertz Walla!)
