Dinner at the Centre of the Earth
'One of our most consistently brilliant, bold and funny writers' Dave Eggers
'His writing is liberal in every good sense of the word' Jonathan Franzen
A spellbinding thriller. A spy novel. A love story . . .
Prisoner Z, held at a black site in the Negev desert for a dozen years, has only his guard for company. How does a nice American Jewish boy from Long Island wind up an Israeli spy working for Mossad, and later, a traitor to his adopted country? What does it mean to be loyal? And what does it mean to be a traitor when the ideals you cherish are betrayed by the country you love?
'Englander is a wonderfully gifted writer' The Times
'One of the great voices of our time' Gary Shteyngart
