American businessman Alan Clay is in Saudi Arabia. He's here selling IT to King Abdullah to help conjure a glittering city from the desert sands. But the king has yet to arrive. And Alan is slowly coming apart - he's up to his neck in debt, he's trying to keep hold of his family and he knows that this will be his very last roll of the dice. As the days stretch into weeks, Alan gets drawn into a world of mirages - where hopes and dreams shimmer and vanish under a blistering desert sun . . . 'Impressive, startling, compelling . . . proves how staggering a genius Eggers can be.' Independent 'Why can't British novelists tell a tale as crisply as Dave Eggers? Hugely impressive . . . sets off at a cracking pace and never lets up.' Mail on Sunday 'Funny, engaging, entertaining' Esquire 'Egger's best book.' London Review of Books 'Irresistible. Eggers's most accomplished book to date.' Guardian 'A Beckettian masterpiece.' Daily Telegraph 'Gripping, strange and terrifyingly believable.' Sunday Times
