Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A first full-length work by the MacArthur Award-winning author of the story collections The Question of Bruno and Nowhere Man finds the murder of Jewish immigrant Lazarus Averbuch triggering ethnic and political tensions in early twentieth-century Chicago, an event that is investigated a century later by a young writer from Eastern Europe.


Review:

"THE LAZARUS PROJECT is a remarkable, and remarkably entertaining, chronicle of loss and hopelessness and cruelty propelled by an eloquent, irritable existential unease. It is, against all odds, full of humor and full of jokes. It is, at the same time, inexpressibly sad."

Cathleen Schine, New York Times Book Review, 05/25/2008

Book Description: Riverhead. 1 Cloth(s), 2008. hard. Book Condition: New. The author of two collections of stories, The Question of Bruno and the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Nowhere Man, Bosnian-American Aleksandar Hemon here offers a stunning novel about two immigrants a century apart. On March 2, 1908, 19-year-old Lazarus Averbuch, a survivor of anti-Jewish pogroms in Eastern Europe, knocked on the door of George Shippy, the chief of Chicago police. Within minutes, Shippy had shot him dead, proclaiming Averbuch an anarchist assassin. In 21st-century America, another immigrant named Brik is writing Lazarus's story, and finds himself reliving the man's life."Masterful . ingenious . whether describing turn-of-the-century Chicago, with its mean tenements and decrepit outhouses, or the 'onionesque armpits' of a Moldovan pimp or an 'unreal McDonald's' in Moldova, 'shiny and sovereign and structurally optimistic,' [Aleksandar] Hemon is as much a writer of the senses as of the intellect. He can be very funny: The novel is full of jokes and linguistics riffs that justify comparisons to Nabokov."—Washington Post Book World 294. Bookseller Inventory # 12103
