"The author of Osama is young, ambitious, skilled and original. Osama is an ingenious inversion of modern history: Osama bin Laden is the central character in a string of pulp novels allegedly written by one Mike Longschott. The terrorist crimes exist, in this novel, in a different realm...excellent, evocative and atmospheric." - Award-winning novelist and author of The Prestige Christopher Priest In a alternate world without global terrorism Joe, a private detective, is hired by a mysterious woman to find a man: the obscure author of pulp fiction novels featuring one Osama Bin Laden: Vigilante...Chased by unknown assailants, JoeâÈçs identity slowly fragments as he discovers the shadowy world of the refugees, ghostly entities haunting the world in which he lives. Where do they come from? And what do they want? Lavie Tidhar was in Dar-es-Salaam during the American embassy bombings in 1998, and stayed in the same hotel as the Al Qaeda operatives in Nairobi. Since then he and his now-wife have narrowly avoided both the 2005 London, KingâÈçs Cross and 2004 Sinai attacksâÈ'experiences that led to the creation of Osama . In a alternate world without global terrorism Joe, a private detective, is hired by a mysterious woman to find a man: the obscure author of pulp fiction novels featuring one Osama Bin Laden: Vigilante... JoeâÈçs quest to find the man takes him across the world, from the backwaters of Asia to the European Capitals of Paris and London, and as the mystery deepens around him there is one question he is trying hard not to ask: who is he, really, and how much of the books are fiction? Chased by unknown assailants, JoeâÈçs identity slowly fragments as he discovers the shadowy world of the refugees, ghostly entities haunting the world in which he lives. Where do they come from? And what do they want? Joe knows how the story should end, but even he is not ready for the truths heâÈçll find in New York and, finally, on top a quiet hill above KabulâÈ'nor for the choice he will at last have to make... In Osama , Lavie Tidhar brilliantly delves into the post-9/11 global subconscious, mixing together elements of film noir, non-fiction, alternative history and international thriller to create an unsettlingâÈ'yet utterly compellingâÈ'portrayal of our times. WINNER OF THE 2012 WORLD FANTASY AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL. "An awesome book, dark, twisty alt-universe terrorist noir" - Lauren Beukes, author of Zoo City âÈæBears comparison with the best of Philip K DickâÈçs paranoid, alternate-history fantasies. ItâÈçs beautifully written and undeniably powerful.âÈç - The Financial Times âÈæA strange, melancholy and moving refl ection, torquing politics with the fantastic, and vice virtuosically versa.âÈç- best selling author China MiÃûville âÈæNot a writer to mess around with half measuresâÈöbrings to mind Philip K DickâÈçs seminal science fiction novel The Man in the High Castle.âÈç - The Guardian âÈæThe author is young, ambitious, skilled and original. Osama is an ingenious inversion of modern history...excellent, evocative and atmospheric.âÈç- best selling author Christopher Priest
