Description

‘A writer of revelatory genius’ Guardian

Following the bizarre accidental death of his wife, Israeli secret service agent Yoel Ravid retires to the suburbs with his daughter, mother and mother-in-law.

After a lifetime of uncovering other people’s secrets he is forced to look back at the lies he has told himself; at the desolate enigma of his wife’s life and death; his years of service to the state and the riddle of his daughter’s behaviour.

‘Humorous, melancholy and touching’ New York Times
