Description

David Grossman (To The End of the Land, The Yellow Wind, The Zigzag Kid) returns to the JCCSF with Falling Out of Time, an allegorical novel that tells the story of Walking Man, who walks in circles around his town in an attempt to come to peace with his sonís death. Employing a new, genre-defying form, he demonstrates his rare gift for storytelling and raises questions about the nature of grief and mourning.

"There are some writers in whose words one recognizes the texture of life. David Grossman is such a writer. He is a master of the emotionally accurate and significant. His characters donít so much lie on the page as rise before the readerís eyes, in three dimensions, their skin covered in prose that both stabs with insight and shines with compassion."
Ė Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi
