"The best work yet from the Pulitzer finalist and best-selling author of For the Relief of Unbearable Urges--a political thriller that unfolds in the highly charged territory of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and pivots on the complex relationship between a secret prisoner and his guard. A prisoner in a secret cell. The guard who has watched over him a dozen years. An American waitress in Paris. A young Palestinian man in Berlin who strikes up an odd friendship with a wealthy Canadian businessman. And The General, Israel's most controversial leader, who lies dying in a hospital, the only man who knows of the prisoner's existence. From these vastly different lives Nathan Englander has woven a powerful, intensely suspenseful portrait of a nation riven by insoluble conflict, even as the lives of its citizens become fatefully and inextricably entwined--a political thriller of the highest order that interrogates the anguished, violent division between Israelis and Palestinians, and dramatizes the immense moral ambiguities haunting both sides. Who is right, who is wrong--who is the guard, who is truly the prisoner? A tour de force from one of America's most acclaimed voices in contemporary fiction"--"A prisoner in a secret cell.

The disparate strands never coalesced for me and bugged me rather than propelling me forward to see how they would resolve. This isn't one I'm giving two objective stars to because I think its take on Israel and Palestine would appeal to a lot of people, and Englander can obviously write a sentence, but the only reason I finished it was because it was so short.

I thought this was very fine. Perhaps the most Israeli novel I have ever read, combining a deep love of the country with real ambivalence for the things such love demands of its people. It's a bold narrative choice to write a number of chapters from the POV of Ariel Sharon... while he was in permanent vegetative state, but that's just the kind of book this is. Probably not for everyone, but very definitely for me. ( )

Interesting interweaving of several stories related to the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians where the only peaceful place to meet for dinner is at the center of the earth. ( )

A book that is absorbing to read but difficult to pin down. The narrative voices of the characters, each separate but intersecting, even connecting biefly, creates a compelling picture. Much of what it illuminates is from the Israeli perspective and struck me as a subtle, persuasive construct. It left me feeling more aware but when I try to formulate aware of what, it slips through my fingers. 7 November 2017. ( )

He is letting his people know that however painful the sacrifices he will ask--this place, hallowed ground, he will never surrender.  Not the jewel of their unified, undivided city. (p. 125)
