A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE SHORTLISTED FOR THE PRIX FEMINA AND THE PRIX MEDICIS WINNER OF THE PRIX DU MEILLEUR LIVRES ETRANGER CHOSEN AS A BOOK OF 2020 BY THE SUNDAY TIMES, OBSERVER, GUARDIAN, i PAPER, FINANCIAL TIMES, NEW STATESMAN, SCOTSMAN, IRISH TIMES, BBC.COM, WATERSTONES.COM

'A wondrous book. It left me hopeful; this is its gift' Elizabeth Strout 'An empathy engine ... It is, itself, an agent of change' New York Times Book Review 'A quite extraordinary novel' Kamila Shamsie

How do we continue living once we have lost our reason to live?

Rami and Bassam live in the city of Jerusalem - but exist worlds apart, divided by an age-old conflict. And yet they have one thing in common. Both are fathers; both are fathers of daughters - and both daughters are now lost.

When Rami and Bassam meet, and tell one another the story of their grief, the most unexpected thing of all happens: they become best of friends. And their stories become one story, a story with the power to heal - and the power to change the world.

'The book goes anywhere and everywhere. It is a delirious and thrilling improvisation, a jazz solo spun out of that meeting . A spectacular structure of stories about everything' Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

A work that is both spectacularly inventive and grounded in brutal fact. It is about grief and forgiveness, about family and politics. If you can read it without sobbing, you're a monster ― Observer

A profound account of pain and healing ― Guardian

Colum McCann's transcendent book is full of hundreds of thought-provoking, emotional segments . McCann turns these haunting true stories into engrossing fiction, and he does so with poetic power ― independent.co.uk

Apeirogon is an empathy engine, utterly collapsing the gulf between teller and listener ... It achieves its aim by merging acts of imagination and extrapolation with historical fact. But it's undisputably a novel, and, to my mind, an exceedingly important one. It does far more than make an argument for peace; it is, itself, an agent of change ― New York Times Book Review

Nothing like any book you've ever read ... Think of discovering an entirely unprecedented, and profoundly true, narrative form. Think about feeling that the very idea of the novel, of what it can be and what it's capable of containing, has been expanded, forever ... All I can really tell you is, read McCann's book. It's an important book -- MICHAEL CUNNINGHAM

Now you have to read Apeirogon ... Delirious and thrilling, spectacular ― Sunday Times

Weaves documentary and imagination into its tough physical fabric . .. Frequently beautiful . Often dazzles . At the core of this fractal fiction is a simple, radiant myth: "The hero makes a friend of his enemy" ― Economist

A jagged, fractured, teeming novel . Apeirogon is a daring structural feat, a conspicuously elaborate and multivalent piece of novelistic engineering . The distilled and fractured form has a glistening poetry ― Times Literary Supplement

In the spirit of Picasso's Guernica, Apeirogon reminds us that such incandescent art evokes humility and light in the face of oppression and loss ― O Magazine

A loving, thoughtful, grueling novel ― Washington Post
