Possibly the best-reviewed title of the year, Joseph O'Neill's
bestselling new novel, NETHERLAND, was praised by New Yorker critic
James Wood as "exquisitely written . . . and one of the most
remarkable post-colonial books I have ever read" and by the New York
Times' fearsome Michiko Kakutani as a "stunning" and "resonant
meditation on the American dream." O'Neill's previous novels include
THE BREEZES and THIS IS THE LIFE. His family history, BLOOD-DARK
TRACK, was a New York Times Notable Book for 2002 and a book of the
year for The Economist and The Irish Times. O'Neill contributes
regularly to The Atlantic Monthly.
Hari Kunzru's novel of the 1960s, MY REVOLUTIONS, "offers a historical
portrait of London that must be unparalleled in contemporary British
fiction," in the words of James Wood. Kunzru's previous books -
TRANSMISSION, THE IMPRESSIONIST and the story collection NOISE -
earned him a place on Granta's "Best of the Young British Novelists"
list. Kunzru is Deputy President of English PEN and is currently a
fellow of the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York
