Ladislav Grosman

Ladislav Grosman (4 February 1921 in Humenné – 25 January 1981 in Tel Aviv) was a Czechoslovak novelist and screenwriter. He is best known for being the author of ''The Shop on Main Street'' (''Obchod na korze''), which he adapted into a critically acclaimed Academy Award-winning film in 1965. Grosman became proficient in Czech after he moved to Czechoslovakia's Czech-speaking part in his late twenties, where he worked as a correspondent and editor in the Prague bureau of the Slovak newspaper ''Pravda''. Following the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, he moved to Israel, where he died in 1981. Provided by Wikipedia
