Publikace: Rise and Fall Of Great Powers - Tom Rachman. For fans of Jennifer Egan, Dave Eggers, and Donna Tartt—the

brilliant, intricately woven new novel by Tom Rachman, author of

The Imperfectionists Following one of the most critically acclaimed

fiction debuts in years, internationally bestselling author Tom

Rachman returns with a brilliant, intricately woven novel about a

young woman who travels the world to make sense of her puzzling

past. Tooly Zylberberg, the American owner of an isolated bookshop

in the Welsh countryside, conducts a life full of reading, but with

few human beings. Books are safer than people, who might ask

awkward questions about her life. She prefers never to mention the

strange events of her youth, which mystify and worry her still.

Taken from home as a girl, Tooly found herself spirited away by a

group of seductive outsiders, implicated in capers from Asia to

Europe to the United States. But who were her abductors? Why did

they take her? What did they really want? There was Humphrey, the

curmudgeonly Russian with a passion for reading; there was the

charming but tempestuous Sarah, who sowed chaos in her wake; and

there was Venn, the charismatic leader whose worldview transformed

Tooly forever. Until, quite suddenly, he disappeared. Years later,

Tooly believes she will never understand the true story of her own

life. Then startling news arrives from a long-lost boyfriend in New

York, raising old mysteries and propelling her on a quest around

the world in search of answers. Tom Rachman—an author celebrated

for humanity, humor, and wonderful characters—has produced a

stunning novel that reveals the tale not just of one woman but of

the past quarter-century as well, from the end of the Cold War to

the dominance of American empire to the digital revolution of

today. Leaping between decades, and from Bangkok to Brooklyn, this

is a breathtaking novel about long-buried secrets and how we must

choose to make our own place in the world. It will confirm

Rachman’s reputation as one of the most exciting young writers we

have. Advance praise for The Rise & Fall of Great Powers “When

a Tom Rachman novel lands in the bookstores, I stop living and

breathing to devour it. It’s hard to think of anyone who has a

better grasp on the world we live in (and I mean, like, the entire

planet) and can write about it with such entertainment and

panache.”—Gary Shteyngart, author of Little Failure “The haunting

tale of a young woman reassessing her turbulent past . . .

brilliantly structured, beautifully written and profoundly

sad.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “A suspenseful novel that

whisks readers around the world . . . [a journey] worth

taking.”—Publishers Weekly Praise for The Imperfectionists “So good

I had to read it twice simply to figure out how he pulled it off .

. . The novel is alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching, and

it’s assembled like a Rubik’s Cube.”—Christopher Buckley, The New

York Times Book Review “Marvelous . . . a ric
