Description
The novel that stunned and scandalized Europe comes to America
Wolf, a low-rent private detective, roams London's gloomy, grimy streets, hauntedby dark visions of a future that could have been and a dangerous present populated by British Fascists and Nazis escaping Germany. Shomer, a pulp fiction writer, lies ina concentration camp, imagining another world. And when Wolf and Shomer's stories converge, wefind ourselves drawn into a novel both shocking and profoundly haunting.
At once a perfectly pitched hard-boiled noir thriller (with an utterly shocking twist) and a Holocaust novel like no other ("The Guardian"), "A Man Lies Dreaming" is a masterful, unforgettable literary experiment from one of our best and most adventurouswriters ("Locus").
