Samson the hero; a brave warrior, leader of men and Nazarite of God? Or a misfit given to whoring and lust, who failed to fulfil his destiny? In Lionís Honey, award-winning writer David Grossman takes on one of the most vivid and controversial characters in the Bible. Revisiting Samsonís famous battle with the lion, his many women and his betrayal by them allóincluding the only one he ever lovedóGrossman gives us a provocative new take on the story and its climax, Samsonís 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 own body and who, some might say, was the precursor to todayís suicide bombers. Printed Pages: 192.
