Osama by Lavie Tidhar

PS Publishing will soon release Lavie Tidhar’s alternative history novel, Osama. Lavie Tidhar was in Dar-es-Salaam during the American embassy bombings in 1998, and stayed in the same hotel as the Al Qaeda operatives in Nairobi. Since then he and his now-wife have narrowly avoided both the 2005 King’s Cross and 2004 Sinai attacks ‘ experiences that led first to his memorable short story ‘My Travels with Al-Qaeda’ and later to the creation of Osama.

‘In Osama, Lavie Tidhar brilliantly delves into the post-9/11 global subconscious, mixing together elements of film noir, non-fiction, alternative history and international thriller to create an unsettling ‘ yet utterly compelling ‘ portrayal of our times.’
