From the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, who's been shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize, the Man Booker International Prize and the Orange Prize for Fiction comes the brilliant novel The Messiah of Stockholm.

Lars Andeming, perhaps overly intellectual and certainly eccentric, is the Monday book reviewer for a Stockholm daily. He is also the self-proclaimed son of Bruno Schulz, a Polish writer who was executed by the Nazis before his last novel, The Messiah, could be published. When a manuscript of The Messiah mysteriously appears in Stockholm, in the possession of Schulz's 'daughter', Lars's circumscribed world of paper, apartment, and favorite bookstore turns upside down, catapulting him into a whirlwind of dream, magic, and illusion.

A Brilliant novel... The Messiah of Stockholm is a worthy companion to Philip Roth's superb Prague Orgy... A complex and fascinating meditation on the nature of writing and the responsibilities of those who choose to create - or judge - tales. - Harold Bloom, New York Times
