Long listed for the Man Booker prize 2014.
The new novel from Joseph O'Neill, his first since the Man Booker long listed and PEN / Faulkner award for fiction - winning Netherland.
In 2007, a New York attorney bumps into an old college buddy and accepts his friends offer of a job in Dubai, as the overseer of an enormous family fortune. Haunted by the collapse of his relationship and hoping for a fresh start, our strange hero begins to suspect that he has exchanged one inferno for another. A funny and wholly original work of international literature, the dog is led by a brilliantly entertaining anti-hero. Imprisoned by his endless powers of reasoning, hemmed in by the ethical demands of globalised life, he is fatefully drawn towards the only logical response to our confounding epoch.
