Video About This Audio Book

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
12 Hrs. 25 Min.


From its unforgettable opening scene in the darkness of a forgotten cemetery in Buenos Aires, The Ministry of Special Cases 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 - and denies a checkered history that only Kaddish holds dear.

Nathan Englander's first novel is a timeless story of fathers and sons. In a world turned upside down, where the past and the future, and the nature of truth itself, all take shape according to a corrupt government's whims, one man, one spectacularly hopeless man, fights to overcome his history and his name - and, if for only once in his life, to put things right.

The Ministry of Special Cases, like Englander's stories before it, is a celebration of our humanity, in all its weakness and, despite that, hope.
