La obra maestra de David Grossman, autor galardonado con el Man Booker International Prize 2017.

A las cinco de la mañana los soldados pueden llamar a tu puerta para comunicar lo que ya temías: tu hijo ha muerto defendiendo la tierra de Israel. Para ahuyentar esta visita, Ora, una mujer madura que ha tropezado más de una vez con el dolor, decide dejar su hogar y andar sin rumbo por los campos que rodean Jerusalén. Intuye que, mientras ella camine, su hijo Ofer, enrolado como voluntario en el ejército, estará a salvo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In this stunning, bestselling novel—and an NBCC Award finalist—David Grossman tells the powerful story of a mother’s love for her son.

Just before his release from service in the Israeli army, Ora’s son Ofer is sent back to the front for a major offensive. In a fit of preemptive grief and magical thinking, so that no bad news can reach her, Ora sets out on an epic hike in the Galilee. She is joined by an unlikely companion—Avram, a former friend and lover with a troubled past—and as they sleep out in the hills, Ora begins to conjure her son. Ofer’s story, as told by Ora, becomes a surprising balm both for her and for Avram—and a mother’s haunting meditation on war and family.
