Publisher Description:

A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR - WINNER OF THE PEN/FAULKNER AWARD - Netherland tells the fragmented story of a man in exile--from home, family and, most poignantly, from himself." --Washington Post Book World

In a New York City made phantasmagorical by the events of 9/11, and left alone after his English wife and son return to London, Hans van den Broek stumbles upon the vibrant New York subculture of cricket, where he revisits his lost childhood and, thanks to a friendship with a charismatic and charming Trinidadian named Chuck Ramkissoon, begins to reconnect with his life and his adopted country. As the two men share their vastly different experiences of contemporary immigrant life in America, an unforgettable portrait emerges of an other New York populated by immigrants and strivers of every race and nationality.
