A Horse Walks into a Bar, a novel brings out different emotions like friendship, love, betrayal, guilt and others. It is a fast phased and gripping tale of Dovaleh. The novel has already won hearts of many. The Guardian has stated that “This isn’t just a book about Israel: it’s about people and societies horribly malfunctioning. Sometimes we can

only apprehend these truths through story – and Grossman, like Dovaleh, has become a master of the truth-telling tale”
