Summary
From Nathan Englander, author of the literary sensation For the relief of unbearable urges, a spectacular debut novel set at the height of Argentina's Dirty War. An unforgettable work of realism and of the imagination, a hallucinatory journey into a world of terror, into a forbidden city within a city at a time of radical instability and dislocation, Englander's novel moves effortlessly between the cosmic and the minute, wrestling with extraordinary themes and binding them into an exceptionally crafted narrative that fuses absurdity and desolation with transcendence and abiding love. The fate of the Jews; the fate of the disappeared; the fate of one family--of a hopelessly lost father and a hopelessly lost son--all meet in the dark, inescapably tortuous corridors of the Ministry of Special Cases
