Lavie Tidhar - A Man Lies Dreaming

In the midst of horror comes an enthralling story of imaginative revenge.  A former pulp writer named Shomer resides in the most infamous of concentration camps.  There he dreams of another world, one in which history's most hated dictator has a different fate working as a gutter-bound PI in the streets of London.  "A Holocaust novel like no other, Lavie Tidhar's A Man Lies Dreaming comes crashing through the door of literature like Sam Spade with a .38 in his hand. This is a shocking book as well as a rather brilliant one, and it treats the topic of genocide with a kind of energetic unseriousness."--The Guardian.
