A kaleidoscopic, epic novel about a lovestruck radio operator who discovers a secret society... In 1975, a black child is mysteriously born to white parents. His name is Radar Radmanovic. Radar grows up in suburban New Jersey, but his story rapidly becomes entangled with terrible events in Yugoslavia, Norway, Cambodia, the Congo, and beyond. Falling in with a secretive group of puppeteers and scientists who stage experimental performances in war zones around the world, he is soon forced to confront the true nature of his identity.

Recensioner i media

Chameleonic, ambitious, epic, fantastical, whimsical, thought-provoking, arcane, philosophical, exhaustive, and completely bonkers - these are just some of the words that could be used to describe I Am Radar... Unquestionably one of the more adventurous entries into the literary landscape * Boston Globe * Larsen has wit, intelligence, empathy and imagination. What he turns his clear gifts to next promises to be fascinating -- Stuart Kelly * Scotland on Sunday * Big, beautiful, ambitious... His prose is addictive and enchanting * Los Angeles Times * I Am Radar is as easy to enjoy for its swaggering tragicomic spirit as it is to admire for its celestial ambition * New York Times Book Review * Inventive and surreal * Financial Times *
