INTERNATIONAL BOOKER PRIZE NOMINEE A remarkable novel of suffering, love, and healingthe story of three generations of women on an unlikely journey to a Croatian island and a secret that needs to be toldfrom the internationally best-selling author of To the End of the LandA magnificent book ... The way Grossman writes about these regions is unique, with a deep understanding of our experience. Josip Mlakic, Express (Croatia)More Than I Love My Life is the story of three strong women: Vera, age ninety; her daughter, Nina; and her granddaughter, Gili, who at thirty-nine is a filmmaker and a wary consumer of affection. A bitter secret divides each mother and daughter pair, though Giliabandoned by Nina when she was just threehas always been close to her grandmother.With Gili making the arrangements, they travel together to Goli Otok, a barren island off the coast of Croatia, where Vera was imprisoned and tortured for three years as a young wife after she refused to betray her husband and denounce him as an enemy of the people. This unlikely journeyfiltered through the lens of Gilis camera, as she seeks to make a film that might help explain her lifelays bare the intertwining of fear, love, and mercy, and the complex overlapping demands of romantic and parental passion.More Than I Love My Life was inspired by the true story of one of David Grossmans longtime confidantes, a woman who, in the early 1950s, was held on the notorious Goli Otok (the Adriatic Alcatraz). With flashbacks to the stalwart Vera protecting what was most precious on the wretched rock where she was held, and Grossmans fearless examination of the human heart, this swift novel is a thrilling addition to the oeuvre of one of our greatest living novelists, whose revered moral voice continues to resonate around the world.
