A bedraggled detective is dispatched to an IDF base where a man was burned alive while making a training film. An art student in Paris breaks into a morgue to recreate Mantegna's Lamentation of Christ. A scripture (with commentary!) tells of a mythical nation uniting to construct a monument to their deity, then falling into chaos when no one can agree on its precise form or dimensions. Hailed from publication as one of the finest novels ever written in Hebrew, A Room is in the league of Gravity's Rainbow or The Recognitions: a monumental, subversive classic of twentieth-century literature.

About the Author:

Youval Shimoni was born in Jerusalem in 1955. He studied cinema at Tel Aviv University and first began publishing fiction in 1990. Shimoni is a senior editor at Am Oved publishers; he also teaches creative writing at Tel Aviv and Haifa Universities. He has been awarded the Bernstein Prize (2001) and the Prime Minister's Prize (2005).

Review:

"A Room is strongly recommended to readers of post-modern and experimental fiction who enjoy stream of consciousness narratives and who are willing to delve deeper than a thin plot’s surface level." -New York Journal of Books

"Shimoni's heavily experimental book has been likened to J.R. Gaddis' Recognitions and Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow." -Kirkus Reviews
