Ministry of Special Cases, Paperback Book

Ministry of Special Cases Paperback



Kaddish Poznan chips the names off gravestones for a living, removing traces of disreputable ancestors for their more respectable kin.

His wife Lillian works in insurance, earning money when people live longer than they fear.

As Argentina's Dirty War unfolds around them, their sometimes hilarious misadventures are soon replaced by something much darker.

A visit to the dreaded Ministry of Special Cases is only the start of Englander's stunning vision of a nation in the hold of corruption and torture, a place where absurdity, despair and hope are the end products of a bureaucracy run out of control.
