Product Details

Praise

“German original Wolfgang Herrndorf’s anarchic, brilliant and very funny thriller is like no other book, although it may help to think Catch-22 or even better, William Gaddis’s Carpenter’s Gothic. It must be said that Herrndorf’s dialogue stands equal to that of Gaddis and Thomas Pynchon, no mean feat, and it is masterfully rendered by translator Tim Mohr on inspired form.” —Eileen Battersby, Irish Times

Sand is a careful subversion of the crime thriller genre: no grand exposition is given, only an elegant conclusion left for careful readers.

“So dazzling and original…it is a masterpiece: at once a thriller, a surrealist comedy, and a dark satire, culminating in one of the greatest twists I’ve read.” —The Daily Telegraph

“Herrndorf…writes with an arresting cinematic vividness, and there is more than a whiff of Coen brothers’ mayhem about the plot.” —The Sunday Times

“A hit in Germany…part Coen bros, part John le Carré.” —Sunday Star

“[Herrndorf’s] was an extraordinary mind.” —Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

“A gripping and brilliantly funny thriller.” —Focus
