Product description


This short book packs a heavy punch...one of the best novels I have read this year. * Literary Review * [A] simple, quiet story, told with emotional depth and elegance. * The Times * A sharply written and atmospheric rendering of life in the Jewish underground in post-war Jerusalem. * Jewish Chronicle * I've been a Stewart O'Nan fan since his very first novel, and never more so than with his latest. In City of Secrets, O'Nan takes his mastery of language and depth of character in a fresh direction: a richly nuanced suspense novel, set in an immensely intriguing post-war Jerusalem. A remarkable book. -- Chris Pavone Stewart O'Nan's City of Secrets will keep you up all night reading - what a beautifully crafted novel. -- Alan Furst City of Secrets is, by inclination and design, quiet and finite, but its impact is deceptively large because O'Nan has something that can't be taught to a writer - and can indeed be unlearned by talented writers: the gift of authenticity. You'll rarely catch O'Nan being an author. You'll simply feel his story rolling past you, in the manner of an old Peugeot. * Washington Post * Enthralling... a clear-eyed and unsentimental look at an astonishing slice of history. * Seattle Times * Finely wrought and morally complex, O'Nan's considerable story-telling powers are masterfully deployed here. With deft strokes, he evokes the tensions and tragedies of Mandate Jerusalem, riven then as now by the fault lines of community and conscience. -- Geraldine Brooks To Stewart O'Nan's 15 previous, omniform novels we can now add the excellent City of Secrets, a little jewel, -wonderfully sparse, moody and uneasy, reminiscent of the delicious, frayed--collar noir of le Carre's The Spy Who Came In From the Cold. * New York Times Book Review *

Book Description
