Martin Amis returns with a violently dark love story set in a Second World War concentration camp. Told by three narrators, The Zone of Interest is a vivid journey into the depths of the human soul. Readers of his 1989 novel Time's Arrow will be familiar with the setting in this comic, subtle novel.

There was an old story about a king who asked his favourite wizard to create a magic mirror. This mirror didn't show you your reflection. Instead, it showed you your soul - it showed you who you really were. But the king couldn't look into the mirror without turning away, and nor could his courtiers. No one could. What happens when we discover who we really are? And how do we come to terms with it?

Fearless and original, The Zone of Interest is a violently dark love story set against a backdrop of unadulterated evil, and a vivid journey into the depths and contradictions of the human soul.
