About the Book

Politics is about: a) a threesome; b) politics

Moshe loves Nana. But love can be difficult -- especially if you want to be kind. And Moshe and Nana want to be kind to someone else.

They want to be kind to their best friend, Anjali.

Politics explores crucial problems of sexual etiquette. What should the sleeping arrangements be in a ménage-à-trois? Is it polite to read while two people have sex beside you? Is it permissible to be jealous?

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Extremely accomplished...very sophisticated.” - A.S. Byatt, Guardian

“One of the funniest, most stylish and utterly original debuts in years… To the nebulous mix of motives that inspire human action, Thirlwell brings the clarity of an essayist such as Montaigne and the deadpan humour of Buster Keaton.” - Neel Mukherjee, London Times

“A mischievous ménage-a-trois…playful [and] charmingly drawn.” - New York Times Book Review

“Dazzling…clever, funny and original.” - Observer (London)

“This book is a literary sensation… Politics really is the novel of the twenty-first century.” - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

“A book you immediately want to give to all of your friends… irresistibly funny and true.” - Le Monde

“A new and great talent.” - La Repubblica
