Summary
The novel that stunned—and scandalized—Europe comes to America Wolf, a low-rent private detective, roams London's gloomy, grimy streets, haunted by 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 in a concentration camp, imagining another world. And when Wolf and Shomer's stories converge, we find 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 adventurous writers" ( Locus )
Summary
Deep in the heart of history's most infamous concentration camp, a man lies dreaming. His name is Shomer, and before the war he was a pulp fiction author. Now, to escape the brutal reality of life in Auschwitz, Shomer spends his nights imagining another world - a world where a disgraced former dictator now known only as Wolf ekes out a miserable existence as a low-rent PI in London's grimiest streets. An extraordinary story of revenge and redemption, A Man Lies Dreaming is the unforgettable testament to the power of imagination.
