9781609451165: Minotaur

On the day of his forty-first birthday, an Israeli secret agent encounters a beautiful, young English woman. He immediately recognizes her as the woman he has been searching for all his life, the one he has loved forever. Though they have never met, he is certain that she is an essential part of his life’s destiny. Using all the tricks of his trade and his network of contacts, he takes control of her existence without ever revealing his identity. Alexander Abramov’s desperate, dangerous love for a woman half his age consumes everything in its path: time, distance, and rival suitors. Only his own story of a life conditioned by isolation, distrust, and murder can explain his devastating manipulation of the woman he professes to love.

Book Description Europa Editions, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "A novel about the expectations and compromises that humans create for themselves . . . Very much in the manner of William Faulkner and Lawrence Durrell." -The New York Times "With echoes of Kafka and Conrad, Israeli novelist Tammuz has fashioned a provocative, spare, slow-to-unfold mystery of character." - Kirkus Review "If the doomed atmosphere that hovers over the romances in Greene and Le Carr is present in Minotaur, so is a flavor that can only be described as more continental, and prose more sensuous than fits into the schemes of those two writers." -Boston Phoenix.
