“Tidhar is a genius at conjuring realities that are just two steps to the left of our own.” –NPR“A warped genius... There is no one like him.” – Ian McDonaldWith an introduction by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, author of New York Times Bestseller Mexican GothicLavie Tidhar’s ground-breaking, award winning novel A Man Lies Dreaming introduced Adolf Hitler as a down-at-heels private detective, forced to eke out a miserable living in 1930s London. Forgotten by history, the man now calling himself Wolf is the lowest of the low, suffering fresh humiliations at every turn.Now Wolf is back, in five darkly comic new stories that see him take on blackmail, murder, and theft – not to mention his old comrades.A brilliant alternate history noir with a heart, these stories are in turn shocking, horrifying and comic, as could only come from the mind of World Fantasy Award winner Lavie Tidhar.PRAISE FOR LAVIE TIDHAR’S A MAN LIES DREAMINGJERWOOD FICTION UNCOVERED PRIZE WINNER 2015BRITISH FANTASY AWARD NOMINEE 2015PREMIO ROMA NOMINEE 2016GEFFEN PRIZE NOMINEE 2019DUBLIN LITERATURE AWARD LONGLIST 2016“Complex, elusive and intriguing” –The Jerusalem Post“Nasty, clever, waspish and witty… a brilliant and potent thought experiment” –The Sunday Herald“Bold and unnerving” –NPR“Damn good” –Jewish Book Council“A wholly original Holocaust story: as outlandish as it is poignant.” –Kirkus (starred review)“A vital, brilliant novel” –Barnes & Noble SFF Blog“Outstanding and moving” –Maxim Jakubowski, LoveReading.co.uk“Gripping… clever and thrilling work” –Buzz Magazine“In turns brutal, harrowing, heartbreaking and intriguing….
