Dinner at the Center of the Earth by Nathan Englander
🏆 📚 🎉 BEST FICTION BOOK OF 2017 AWARD GOES TO: Dinner at the Center of the Earth by Nathan Englander. Themes of spies, sex, and secrets are frantically woven into the lives of individuals living on the grey edges of the modern Israel state. The stories take place across I think 5 timezones over a period of 10+ years and 15+ locations. If you want to dive into a reality that brings to life the tensions between the needs of individuals vs systems - start here.
My tolerance for fiction is very low as I usually get bored with linear storytelling, which is why I love Nathan’s writing style. As my 1 fiction book of the year, this was worth every minute. Congrats Nathan! Give us more.
