In 1989 Grunberg made his acting debut in Maria's Cunt (de Kut van Maria); a short film by Dutch enfant terrible filmmaker Cyrus Frisch.
Grunberg made his literary debut in 1994 with the novel Blauwe maandagen (Blue Mondays), which won the Dutch prize for the best debut novel that year. In 2000, under the heteronym Marek van der Jagt, he won the best debut prize again for his novel De geschiedenis van mijn kaalheid (The History of My Baldness).
Grunberg publishes novels about once a year but also writes columns and essays in a wide variety of Dutch and international newspapers and magazines. He does not restrict himself only to the written media, but also reads a story for the radio every week and for some time he was host of a cultural television program. He also writes a blog for the literary Internet magazine Words Without Borders and his own site ArnonGrunberg.com.
His novel Tirza won the Belgian Golden Owl Prize for Literature and the Dutch Libris Prize. His books have been translated into many languages, including English, German, Japanese and Georgian. In 2009 he won the Constantijn Huygens Prize for his entire body of works.
From 2006 Grunberg wrote various journalistic reports, for example about working undercover in a Bavarian hotel and his visit to Guantánamo Bay. Also he visited the Dutch troops in Afghanistan and the US Army in Iraq. In 2009 these reports were collected in the book Chambermaids and Soldiers.
It was through this book "Chambermaids and Soldiers" (2009) that an idea was born. On page 101 Grunberg writes: “I want to leave the world a wine with the name Grunberg.” Aris Derksen a wine entrepreneur and management consultant from Winter Business Group in Madrid ( winterbusinessgroup.net) would help Arnon Grunberg fulfill this wish. Together they formed a partnership ( arnongrunbergwines.com) in order to create a series of Terroir wines. The first wine out of this series of three was released in June 2010 under the name "Freud" Vintage 2007. The wine has been exclusively elaborated by Carlos Falcó, Marquis of Griñon and owner of Pagos de Familia Marques de Griñon ( pagosdefamilia.com) in Toledo, Spain.
