From its unforgettable opening scene in the darkness of a forgotten cemetery in Buenos Aires, Nathan Englander's first novel -- following his award-winning story collection -- 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. When the nightmare of the disappeared children brings the Poznan family to its knees, they are thrust into the unyielding corridors of the Ministry of Special Cases, the refuge of last resort. Through the devastation of a single family, Englander captures, indelibly, the grief of a nation.
