Description

"I was riveted by Martin Amis's The Zone of Interest, with its daring projection into the mind and 'heart' of a character . . . It felt like a fitting way to spy on historical events that are impossible to look at but that must, nevertheless, always be kept in sight." --John Colapinto, The New Yorker

"Engrossing. . . . Rich in black comedy." --Chicago Tribune

"Elegant and subtle. . . . An intriguing, sophisticated effort to understand the daily culture of genocide." --Los Angeles Times

"[A] serious and diligently researched work with a streak of deadpan humor that reframes, and reemphasizes, the horror at hand." --Entertainment Weekly

"Returning to the Holocaust--the subject of Time's Arrow, still among [Amis's] best books--Amis seems greatly energized, addressing the most serious theme with rigour, sophistication, and, most astonishingly, wit." --The Village Voice

"[Amis] is still the scourge of clich� and the supreme man of letters. . . . Dazzl[es] us once more with verbal dexterity and gutsy inventiveness." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"[A] pulverizing novel about identity and humanity. . . in equal measure funny and crushing, with emphasis on how chaos and mass psychosis act on the souls living through it." --The Miami Herald

"Moving. . . . Genius. . . . Capture[s] that contrast between frivolity and horror with elegance and irony." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"An important book--relentless, excoriating, blisteringly well-written. . . . Mr. Amis is one of our most accomplished writers. . . . Fiercely sharp-witted, his writing has the capacity to be so unique and dexterous as to create the impression he works from some higher alphabet than the rest of us." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Exceptionally brave. . . . An extended rumination, a nightmare. . . . It's exciting; it's alive; it's more than slightly mad. As the title suggests, it's dreadfully interesting." --The Sunday Times

"Displays both restraint and humanity. . . . Takes on themes of immense gravity. . . . Martin Amis isn't new to the business of turning the horrors of history into fiction, but he has never done so more thoughtfully than in this disquieting novel. . . . He has confronted its challenges with honour and delicacy." --The Times Literary Supplement (London)

"As good as anything Amis has written since London Fields (1989), and one he obviously felt compelled to write. He has done his subject justice." --The Spectator

"Highly cerebral and innovative, and also human, humane--even humbling--this is a brave, inquiring work from a literary maverick whose biggest problem as an artist has been his rampaging talent. He has certainly harnessed it here." --The Irish Times
