Buenos Aires, 1970s. Kaddish Poznan chips the names off gravestones for a living, removing traces of disreputable ancestors for their more respectable kin. His wife Lillian works in insurance, earning money when people live longer than they fear. When the government is overthrown in a military coup, their son Pato is arrested by the police and becomes one of the disappeared. Desperate to find him, Kaddish and Lillian turn to the Ministry of Special Cases, a bureaucracy of anguish and false promises, and they discover just how far they are willing to go to save their son...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Powerful and engaging ... shot through with a dark humour, which makes it all the more moving

* The Times *
Who is this Nathan Englander, so young in novelist years, but already possessed of an old masters voice? One reads this novel in awe of Englander's talent * New York Times *
Wry and haunting ... Englander's novel is a striking memorial to the victims of political oppression * Sunday Times *
Englander writes with exquisite precision * Guardian *
At times so heartbreaking that you want to turn away * Sunday Telegraph *
