Synopsis

Winner of the August Prize for Fiction.

Jonas Hassen Khemiri has crafted an enthralling jigsaw-puzzle of a book. Part love story, part reflection on loss, on memory, Everything I Don't Remember is a smart, one-of-a-kind literary novel that is both beautiful and heart-breaking.

A young man dies in a car crash - accident or suicide? An unnamed writer with an agenda of his own sets out to piece together Samuel's story. From friends, relatives and neighbours, a portrait emerges of a loving son, reluctant bureaucrat, contrived poser, loyal friend.

But who was Samuel really, and what happened to him?

In filling out the contours of his existence, the writer grasps at a fundamental question: how do we account for the substance of a life?

'Unforgettable. In this non-putdownable puzzle of a story, Khemiri manages to both thrill and break your heart' - Gary Shteyngart.
