Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Tod. T. Friendly is living his life backwards. Doctor Friendly has just died, but after weeks of improving in the hospital, he is sent home to his affable, melting-pot, primary-colour existence in suburban America. From the fresh-cut lawns of his retirement to the hustle of New York, and then the boat back to war-torn Europe, Friendly carries with him a secret. Trapped in his body from grave to cradle, Friendly's consciousness can only watch as he struggles to make sense of the good doctor's most ambitious project yet - the final solution.

Amis's backwards world is rigorously imagined. It is a world of pathos and cruel hilarity - but the crux, the test of his vision, is what he does with Auschwitz * Guardian * The devastatingly sustained black irony stands comparison with Swift's A Modest Proposal. It is, I think, Amis's finest achievement to date * Financial Times * Extraordinary - Ironic inversion is essentially a comic device, but its trickery here yields results that are rigorously grave * Independent on Sunday * An icy, hard read - Amis is at his intriguing, powerful and heedful best * Time Out * Amis's most daring and ambitious novel * Daily Telegraph *
