“The Tel Aviv Dossier has to be the most enjoyably bizarre novel I’ve read. The authors, Lavie Tidhar and Nir Yaniv, have woven a complex story of catastrophic destruction, psychotic characters and religio-political apocalypse (in both senses of the word) into a story that never ceases to amaze and confound from page to page.”
