David Grossman is one of Israel's greatest writers. Now because of a tragic event, he has also become the country's conscience. Grossman's new book is about a woman who decides that instead of waiting for authorities to notify her that her son has died in battle, she won't be home to receive the news. And possibly, that will protect him.
Author and winner of the Frankfurt Book Fair Peace Prize, David Grossman joins Madeleine to talk about his latest book, To the End of the Land.
