This famous author writes children's books, novels, and essays. He considers it his task to make understandable the complexity of the world in which we live. His moving book Falling Out of Time (2012) was written after his son died in the Lebanese war. In 2012, one of his children's books was filmed in the Netherlands as Nono, het Zigzag Kind (Nono, the Zigzag Kid). Well-known books by Grossman include Look Under: Love (1986), Tamar's Voice (YA novel, 2000), and Someone to Run With (2009).

Interviewer Lex Bohlmeijer can be heard in radio programmes such as "Casa Luna" and "Diskotabel," and he writes for De Correspondent online newspaper. In English.
