A PERSON OF INTEREST
An Asian-born mathematician near retirement age must endure
the undermining power of suspicion after a colleague becomes the

pitch-perfect writing, [Choi] tells the large-canvas story of paranoia in the age of terror and the smaller (but no less important)
story of the cost of failed dreams.”—Los Angeles Times.

J. M. Coetzee
The Nobel prize-winning author explores the relationship between
father and daughter and the complicated racial complexities of the
new South Africa. “Despite the snarled moralities that keep this story

miracles.”—Newsweek. “A subtly brilliant commentary on the nature
and balance of power in his homeland...by a writer at the top of his
form.”—Time. “Compulsively readable...an authentically spiritual
document, a lament for the soul of a century.”—The New Yorker.

one since St. John the Divine has written with such power and
verve about the End of the World—and Currie’s book is far more
full of love and compassion than John could muster.”—David
Benioff, author of City of Thieves.
