WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017

'Virtuoso...a whirlwind of laughter and tears that sucks you in and makes you hold your breath' - Daily Mail

'A short, shocking masterpiece' - Sunday Times

A comedy club in a small Israeli town. An audience has come expecting an evening of amusement. Instead they see a comedian falling apart on stage; an act of disintegration, a man crumbling, as a matter of choice, before their eyes. Dovaleh G, a veteran stand-up comic - charming, erratic, repellent - exposes a wound he has been living with for years: a fateful and gruesome choice he had to make between the two people who were dearest to him.

Flaying alive both himself and the people watching him, Dov provokes revulsion and empathy from an audience that doesn't know whether to laugh or cry - and all this in the presence of a former childhood friend who is trying to understand why he's been summoned to this performance...

'A writerly tour de force that would be unbearably painful, were it not also so generously humane' - Lucy Hughes-Hallett, New Statesman, Book of the Year

'A work of sombre brilliance and disqueiting rage' - Financial Times
