This is an auction for THE STREET SWEEPER by Elliot Perlman.

"Perlman brilliantly makes personal both the Holocaust and the civil rights movement, and crafts a moving and literate page-turner."
a *** starred *** review in Publishers Weekly (US)

"Perlman’s long tale, spanning decades, is suspenseful and perfectly told in many voices, without a false note. It deals with big issues of memory, race, human fallibilities and the will to survive against the odds. A keeper: a story that speaks to the simple longing for freedom and peace, and to all the things that get in the way."
- a *** starred *** review in Kirkus Reviews (US)

"A master... In his intently detailed, worlds-within-worlds third novel, this discerning and unflinching investigator of moral dilemmas great and small takes on the monstrous horrors of racism in America and the Holocaust... Perlman's compulsively readable wrestle-with-evil saga is intimate and monumental, wrenching and cathartic."
- a *** starred *** review in Booklist (US)

“It seems somehow fitting that the author of The Street Sweeper, a wonderfully rich, engaging and multilayered new novel about blacks and Jews in Chicago and New York, would hail from Australia. I’ve been a fan of Elliot Perlman’s work since his 1998 novel Three Dollars. That book and his massive Seven Types of Ambiguity (2004) revealed him to be an author of rare erudition and compassion. But The Street Sweeper is his boldest work yet…”
– Washington Post
