Description: Toronto, Alfred A. Knopf Canada. 2006, First Canadian Edition. (ISBN: 9780676974218) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 155 pp, 8" H. Volume V of the 'Myths Series'. "Samson the hero: a brave warrior, leader of men and Nazarite of God? Or a misfit given to whoring and lust, who failed to fulfill his destiny? In 'Lion's Honey', award-winning writer David Grossman takes on one of the most vivid and controversial characters in the Bible. Revisiting Samson's famous battle with the lion, his many women and his betrayal by them all - including the only one he ever loved - Grossman gives us a provocative new take on the story and its climax, Samson's final act of death, bringing down a temple on himself and three thousand Philistines. In exhilarating and lucid prose, Grossman reveals the journey of a single lonely and tortured soul who never found a true home in the world, who was uncomfortable in his very body and who, some might say, was the precursor of today's suicide bombers." Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling, minor rubbing. Near Fine/Very Good+.
