Rabbi James RosenbergRabbi James RosenbergDavid Grossman’s epic novel, “To the End of the Land” (translated by Jessica Cohen, Alfred A. Knopf, 2010), was originally published in Hebrew in 2008.  The Hebrew title, “Isha Borachat Me’besurah,” means, in the context of Grossman’s story, “A Woman Running Away from (Bad) News.”  At first, I found  the radical difference between the Hebrew and English titles confusing.  However, by the time I completed the 576 pages of the English version, I had come to see that each title emphasizes a separate but essential aspect of Grossman’s complex narrative.
