THE BRIEF AND FRIGHTENING REIGN OF PHIL By George Saunders Bloomsbury, €16.05
This delightful political fable explores our fear of ambiguity and what the author calls our ‘‘tendency to massacre a problem out of existence’’.
Saunders writes tautly and with precision (he is a recovering technical writer), drawing on many of the dark episodes in recent history, most obviously the genocide in Rwanda and the fragmentation of Yugoslavia.
