Synopsis:

Abandoned amid the offbeat inhabitants of the Chelsea Hotel when his English wife and son return to London following September 11th, Hans, a banker originally from the Netherlands, struggles to find himself in his adopted country, until he stumbles upon a vibrant New York cricket subculture and the charismatic Chuck Ramkissoon. (General Fiction)


Review:

"The wittiest, angriest, most exacting and most desolate work of fiction we've yet had about life in New York and London after the World Trade Center fell."

Dwight Garner, New York Times Book Review, 05/18/2008

Review:

"I don't know whether Joseph O'Neill jumped out of his bath in Manhattan shrieking 'Eureka!' when he realized that, of all the possible subjects in the world, he had to write a novel about playing cricket in New York City, but he should have. Despite cricket's seeming irrelevance to America, the game makes his exquisitely written novel NETHERLAND a large fictional achievement, and one of the most remarkable post-colonial books I have ever read."

James Wood, New Yorker, 05/26/2008
