Product Details


“A Jewish Sopranos . . . utterly engrossing, full of passionate sympathy . . . Joshua Cohen is an extraordinary prose stylist, surely one of the most prodigious at work in American fiction today.”—James Wood, The New Yorker
“Brilliant . . . It feels master-planned to slowly unsettle your convictions, as the best novels do. . . . Cohen has a brain-on-fire intellect and a Balzac-grade enthusiasm for understanding varieties of experience.”Los Angeles Times
Moving Kings is a lit fuse, a force let loose, a creeping flame heading for demolition, and Cohen himself is a master of argot and wit.”—Cynthia Ozick
“A dazzling and poignant book.”—Rachel Kushner
“Cohen’s writing is filled with sharp turns of phrase and elegant rhythms. . . . The denouement is as vengeful as any Old Testament plot twist. . . . Cohen has become one of America’s top young novelists.”—Time
“A svelte comic triumph that concentrates [Cohen’s] genius.”The Washington Post
“Another strong case for Cohen’s admission into the ranks of the Great American Novelists.”Esquire
“An astute and often penetrating look at a divided world, lightened with sympathy for all its flawed protagonists.”The Guardian
Moving Kings is a swift, darkly funny, surprising—and brilliant—novel. . . . [Cohen] manages to bring together a treatment of fifty years of the Palestinian occupation with a story about American gentrification.”Vice
“Cohen stuns, he dazzles, he defies. . . . His talent . . . is a youthful one, bursting with ambition.”Bomb
“Snappy, heartfelt, vivid, and often note-perfect in its depiction of displacement, aging, and the compromises of being part of an occupying force.”—Karan Mahajan

“A swift-moving highbrow comic adventure.”Vulture
