Jonas Hassen Khemiri - Everything I Don't Remember (2nd Hand Paperback)
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?

"Heartbreakingly sad and laugh-out-loud funny . . . Its chorus of drifters, romantics and cynics stick in the memory, each competing to tell their own truth' - Hari Kunzru.
'Unforgettable. In this non-putdownable puzzle of a story, Khemiri manages to both thrill and break your heart' - Gary Shteyngart.
