New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year
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.

Rezension: "Advance Praise for Netherland
""New York is not what most people imagine it to be. Just as marriage, family, friendship and manhood are not. "Netherland" is suspenseful, artful, psychologically pitch-perfect, and a wonderful read. But more than any of that, it's revelatory. Joseph O'Neill has managed to paint the most famous city in the world, and the most familiar concept in the world (love) in an entirely new way."
--Jonathan Safran Foer, author of "Everything Is Illuminated"
"A dense, intelligent novel... O'Neill offers an outsider's view of New York bursting with wisdom, authenticity, and a sobering jolt of realism."
--"Publisher's Weekly "(starred review)
"O'Neill writes a prose of Banvillean grace and beauty, shimmering with truthfulness, as poised as it is unsettling. He is a master of the long sentence, of the half-missed moment, of the strange archaeology of the troubled marriage. Many have tried to write a great American novel. Joseph O'Neill has succeeded."
--Joseph O'Connor, author of "Star of the Sea
""Somewhere between the towns of Saul Bellow and Ian McEwan, O'Neill has pitched his miraculous tent. "Netherland "is a novel about provisionality, marginality; its registers are many, one of the most potent being its extremely grown-up nostalgia. The dominant sense is of aftermath, things flying off under the impulse of an unwanted explosion, and the human voice calling everything back."
--Sebastian Barry, author of "A Long Long Way"

"From the Hardcover edition."

"With echoes of The Great Gatsby...Joseph O'Neill's stunning new novel provides a resonant meditation on the American Dream."
--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
"Masterly.... Exquisitely written.... One of the most remarkable post-colonial novels I have ever read.... O'Neill is the writer this city has been awaiting."
--James Wood, "The New Yorker"
"Elegant.... Always sensitive and intelligent, Netherland tells the fragmented story of a man in exile--from home, family and, most poignantly, from himself." --"Washington Post Book World"
"I devoured it in three thirsty gulps...that satisfied a craving I didn't know I had.... Netherland has more life inside it than ten very good novels."
--Dwight Garner, "The New York Times Book Review"
"A wonderful read."
--Jonathan Safran Foer
"Haunting.... O'Neill's elegant prose makes for a striking read."
--"Entertainment Weekly"
"A beautifully written meditation on despair, loss, and exile."
--"USA Today"
"Remarkable.... Note-perfect."
--"Vogue"
"Outstanding.... A coming-of-middle-age tale."
--"Newsweek"
"O'Neill's writing is unendingly beautiful."
--"The Los Angeles Times"
"Brilliant.... A post-9/11 novel that takes us closer to understanding the emotional wreckage."
--"GQ"
"Provocative, luminous.... A fine, darkly glowing novel."
--"The Boston Globe"
"A dense, intelligent novel... O'Neill offers an outsider's view of New York bursting with wisdom, authenticity, and a sobering jolt of realism."
