A Man Lies Dreaming
An extraordinary story of revenge and redemption from World Fantasy Award-winning author of OSAMA
By Lavie Tidhar
The next novel from Lavie Tidhar, the award-winning author of THE VIOLENT CENTURY.
The Man in the High Castle for the 21st Century.
***Winner of the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered award***
Deep in the heart of history's most infamous concentration camp, a man lies dreaming. His name is Shomer, and before the war he was a pulp fiction author. Now, to escape the brutal reality of life in Auschwitz, Shomer spends his nights imagining another world - a world where a disgraced former dictator now known only as Wolf ekes out a miserable existence as a low-rent PI in London's grimiest streets.
An extraordinary story of revenge and redemption, A Man Lies Dreaming is the unforgettable testament to the power of imagination.
