His new novel is The Sleepwalkers.
Recently I asked him what he was reading. His reply:
I’m just finishing a very powerful Dutch novel from the Second World War called Comedy in a Minor Key. Although written by a German Jew who spent those years in hiding, it’s told from the point of view of the Dutch couple who keep such a man in their care. The result is most intimate, psychologically raw exploration I’ve ever encountered of what it must have felt like to have a Jewish refugee hidden in your home at the height of the Nazi Holocaust.Visit Paul Grossman's website.
