THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING NOVEL

ADAPTED INTO A FEATURE FILM WITH ELIJAH WOOD

From the bestselling author of Here I Am, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and We are the Weather - a hilarious, life-affirming and utterly original novel about the search for truth

'Gripping, hilariously funny and deeply serious. An astonishing feat of writing' The Times

'One of the most impressive novel debuts of recent years' Joyce Carol Oates, Times Literary Supplement

'A first novel of startling originality' Jay McInerney, Observer

'It seems hard to believe that such a young writer can have such a deep understanding of both comedy and tragedy' Erica Wagner, The Times

A young man arrives in the Ukraine, clutching in his hand a tattered photograph. He is searching for the woman who fifty years ago saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Unfortunately, he is aided in his quest by Alex, a translator with an uncanny ability to mangle English into bizarre new forms; a """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""blind"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" old man haunted by memories of the war; and an undersexed guide dog named Sammy Davis Jr, Jr. What they are looking for seems elusive -- a truth hidden behind veils of time, language and the horrors of war.

What they find turns all their worlds upside down...
