Lamont Williams, recently released from prison and working as a hospital janitor, strikes up an unlikely friendship with a patient, an elderly Jewish Holocaust survivor who starts to tell him of his extraordinary past.
UK Kirkus Review » There are two books with this teasing title, and in his latest novel Australian barrister/ writer Elliot Perlman, bestselling author of Three Dollars, moves between critic William Empson's concern with poetry and the matter of ambiguity in human relationships. Seven voices tell the overlapping stories. Obsessive, idealistic Simon, suffering from years of unrequited love, kidnaps his ex-lover's son. This incident drives the plot, but the novel is really about society, economics, politics and the law, and the effect they have on individuals who simply do not fit 'the system.' The setting is Melbourne, but Perlman gamely tackles Western society as a whole, and the picture of greed and materialism he paints is not a pretty one. Love and selflessness do not figure largely on most people's lists: for Simon, however, they are all-important. Perlman brings a wealth of learning to this very solid, thought-provoking read. And there is even a complicated but happy ending. (Kirkus UK)
