An apeirogon is a shape with an infinite number of sides –a perfect term to describe the current Palestinian conflict. Based on the true lives of two grieving fathers, Israeli Rami and Palestinian Samir, and their foundation to promote peace, this story will affect you in ways most novels cannot. Like watching a painter at work, McCann continuously adds snippets of history from a multitude of perspectives, culminating in a masterpiece. This is a unique novel to be absorbed, shared and cherished.

Recommended by Susan Walsh, Dubray Head Office.

Rami Elhanan and Bassam Aramin live near one another - yet they exist worlds apart. Rami is Israeli. Bassam is Palestinian. Rami's license plate is yellow. Bassam's license plate is green. It takes Rami fifteen minutes to drive to the West Bank. The same journey for Bassam takes an hour and a half. Both men have lost their daughters. Rami's thirteen-year-old girl Smadar was killed by a suicide bomber while out shopping with her friends. Bassam's ten-year-old daughter Abir was shot and killed by a member ofthe border police outside her school. There was a candy bracelet in her pocket she hadn't had time to eat yet. The men become the best of friends. In this epic novel - named for a shape with a countably infinite number of sides - Colum McCann crosses centuries and continents, stitching time, art, history, nature and politics into a tapestry of friendship, love, loss and belonging. Musical, muscular, delicate and soaring, it is a book for our times from a writer at the height of his powers.

Availability: Out of Stock
