From its unforgettable opening scene in the darkness of a forgotten cemetery in Buenos Aires, THE MINISTRY OF SPECIAL CASES casts a powerful spell. In the heart of Argentina's Dirty War, Kaddish Poznan struggles with a son who won't accept him; strives for a wife who forever saves him; and spends his nights protecting the good name of a community that denies his existence–and denies a checkered history that only Kaddish holds dear.
Nathan Englander's first novel is a timeless story of fathers and sons. In a world turned upside down, where the past and the future, the nature of truth itself, all take shape according to a corrupt government's whims, one man–one spectacularly hopeless man–fights to overcome his history and his name, and, if for only once in his life, to put things right. THE MINISTRY OF SPECIAL CASES, like Englander's stories before it, is a celebration of our humanity, in all its weakness, and–despite that–hope.
