From the bestselling author of The Monk of Mokha and The Circle comes a taut, suspenseful story of two foreigners' role in a nation's fragile peace.

An unnamed country is leaving the darkness of a decade at war, and to commemorate the armistice the government commissions a new road connecting two halves of the state. Two men, foreign contractors from the same company, are sent to finish the highway. While one is flighty and adventurous, wanting to experience the nightlife and people, the other wants only to do the work and go home. But both men must eventually face the absurdities of their positions, and the dire consequences of their presence. With echoes of J. M. Coetzee and Graham Greene, this timeless novel questions whether we can ever understand another nation's war, and what role we have in forging anyone's peace.

Editorial Reviews

"Eggers... may be the only living American writer for whom the term 'Hemingway-esque' meaningfully applies.... Eggers ably weaves in a host of ethical questions over one man's responsibility to the other, what makes help transactional versus simply kind.... An unassuming but deceptively complex morality play, as Eggers distills his ongoing concerns into ever tighter prose." --Kirkus
