Grosman: Književnost je muzika

David Grossman born in Jerusalem on January 25, 1954, is an Israeli author of fiction, nonfiction, and youth and children's literature. His books have been translated into numerous languages. The Yellow Wind, his nonfiction study of the Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip met with acclaim abroad but sparked controversy at home. Grossman studied Philosophy and Theater at Hebrew University. He worked as a correspondent and radio actor for Kol Yisrael, Israel's national broadcasting service. He was one of the presenters of Cat in a Sack, a children's program broadcast from 1970 to 1984. His book Duel was first aired as a radio drama on Kol Yisrael. Together with Dani Eldar, he hosted the slapstick radio program, Stutz (Yiddish: "that can happen"). In 1984, Grossman won the Prime Minister's Prize for Creative Work. Grossman, an outspoken peace activist, supported Israel during the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict. On August 10, 2006, however, he and fellow authors Amos Oz and A.B. Yehoshua held a press conference at which they urged the government to agree to a ceasefire that would create the basis for a negotiated solution. Two days later, his 20-year-old son Uri, a staff sergeant in an armoured unit, was killed by an anti-tank missile during an IDF operation in southern Lebanon shortly before the ceasefire. [1] On February 2, 2007, Grossman was awarded the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa by the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. Grossman lives in Mevasseret Zion on the outskirts of Jerusalem. He is married and the father of three children, Yonatan, 24, Ruth, 14, and the late Uri.

„Verujem da je književnost muzika, da se književnost čuje“, izjavio je izraelski pisac David Grosman na konferenciji za novinare na kojoj je predstavljen njegov roman „Vidi pod: Ljubav“.

„U svakom delu koje pišem, u svemu što napišem postoji prava melodija. Verujem da je književnost muzika, da se književnost čuje. Kada očima čitamo neki tekst u ušima čujemo melodije tog teksta. Nekada je ta melodija harmonična, skladna, nekada je disharmonična“, rekao je Grosman.

On je rekao da roman „Vidi pod: Ljubav“ govori o dečaku Momiku čiji su roditelji preživeli iskustvo Holokausta, a zatim došli u Izrael da grade novi život. Momika, koji je rođen u Jerusalimu, muči što ne zna šta su njegovi roditelji preživeli.

„Čuo je da stalno odrasli pominju nacističku zver, ali mu nije jasno o čemu se radi, kakva je to zver. Ljudi iz njegovog okruženja neće da mu kažu o čemu se radi, jer ne žele devetogodišnjeg dečaka da suoče sa tolikom brutalnošću“, rekao je Grosman.

On je rekao da je kroz prvi deo romana „razumeo mnogo toga o sebi, svojim roditeljima, društvu u kome živimo i o sposobnosti ljudskog bića kako za surovost, tako i za milost“.

Grosman je rekao i da je život moguć posle teških stvari koje nas zadese. Ličnu dramu i gubitak sina u ratu Izraela i Hezbolaha Grosman je pretočio u roman „Izvan vremena“.

Glavni urednik „Arhipelaga“ Gojko Božović rekao je da ova izdavačka kuća već deset godina objavljuje Grosmanove knjige.

David Grosman je obeležio 5. Beogradski festival evropske književnosti u Domu omladine.
