Editorial Reviews

"[Grossman's] essay collection Death as a Way of Life leaves [readers] with the sensation of having just stepped off a roller coaster. The wild ups and downs, the raised hopes and shattered dreams of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process over the past decade have been just that-- a stomach-churning roller coaster ride." -San Francisco Chronicle"As the chronicle of an activist author's journey to the edge of the abyss, and of his principled refusal to hurl himself into it, Death as a Way of Life brings to mind some words from Beckett: 'I can't go on. I'll go on.'" -Newsday
