About this product
- DescriptionThis book is shortlisted for the 2015 Walter Scott Prize. Surely his masterpiece...Intelligent, terrifying and comic...Amis has tackled the biggest questions with imagination and intelligence, and the ultimate strength of this masterly vel is that he kws, and shows, that although there is answer to the questions Auschwitz poses, we must never stop asking them. Read it, ponder it - revel in it indeed - then read it again. (Allan Massie, Scotsman). There was an old story about a king who asked his favourite wizard to create a magic mirror. This mirror didn't show you your reflection. Instead, it showed you your soul - it showed you who you really were. But the king couldn't look into the mirror without turning away, and r could his courtiers. No one could. What happens when we discover who we really are? And how do we come to terms with it? Fearless and original, The Zone of Interest is a violently dark love story set against a backdrop of unadulterated evil, and a vivid journey into the depths and contradictions of the human soul.
