'A masterpiece of the sacred and the profane... A literary triumph.' Jake Arnott, Guardian

How do you build a nation? It takes statesmen and soldiers, farmers and factory workers, of course. But it also takes thieves, prostitutes and policemen.

Nation-building demands sacrifice. And one man knows exactly where those bodies are buried: Cohen, a man who loves his country. A reasonable man for unreasonable times.

A car bomb in the back streets of Tel Aviv. A diamond robbery in Haifa. Civil war in Lebanon.

Rebel fighters in the Colombian jungle. A double murder in Los Angeles. How do they all connect? Only Cohen knows.

Maror is the story of a war for a country's soul - a dazzling spread of narrative gunshots across four decades and three continents. It is a true story. All of these things happened.

It's like the Jewish Godfather!' Silvia Moreno-Garcia
