The book is composed of two novellas (each about 130 pages): Frenzy and Her Body Knows. I enjoyed Frenzy and beginning to read that story in the bookstore is what got me to buy the book. However, Her Body Knows to my surprise, and delight, was the better of the two. It really takes you inside these characters mindsets and does an amazing job at exploring several relationships all in different contexts. I was shocked and moved that a heterosexual man could really delve so beautifully into the psyches of two women, one of which is a lesbian. It explores the plutonic love between an adult and an unrelated youth, the tumultuous love between mother and daughter, the love between a passionate partner and one who is unsure of how to be loved, and the strength to finally find the love for oneself. Frenzy deals more with feelings of betrayal and doubt that can, and almost always do, occur between people in monogamous relationships. Betrayal if that bond is broken, even if not in actuality than in the mind. Doubt about a relationship due to the memories of a first or "true" love that didn't work out. Most people if they're honest with themselves have been in one, if not both, of the situations and David Grossman does a great job of bringing these psyches out through the odd pairing of an insured mans confessions to his sister-in-law. I think that novella in itself speaks to the amazing depth of David Grossman as a writer. No wonder he is one of Israel's most treasured authors. For those who don't know authors in Israel have very high respect and clout in the society if they're good. This is actually my second work, third if you count the two novellas separately, and his best yet.
