Product description

Review

The author of Osama is young, ambitious, skilled and original. Osama is an ingenious inversion of modern history: Osama bin Laden is the central character in a string of pulp novels allegedly written by one Mike Longschott. The terrorist crimes exist, in this novel, in a different realm...excellent, evocative and atmospheric. --Christopher Priest - Award-winning novelist and author of The Prestige

'An awesome book, dark, twisty alt-universe terrorist noir.' --Lauren Beukes, bestselling author of Zoo City

'Bears comparison with the best of Philip K Dick's paranoid alternate-history fantasies. It's beautifully written and undeniably powerful.' --Financial Times

About the Author

Lavie Tidhar was in Dar-es-Salaam during the American embassy bombings in 1998, and stayed in the same hotel as the Al Qaeda operatives in Nairobi. Since then he and his now-wife have narrowly avoided both the 2005 London, King's Cross and 2004 Sinai attacks experiences that led to the creation of Osama. He is the author of many novels, including the Bookman trilogy and is a prolific short story writer.
