A very interesting book set primarily in Jerusalem. The only character whose name we learn is the woman at the center of the story who dies before the story begins. Everyone else is "the human resources manager," "the owner," "the office manager," "the boy," "the consul," etc. It's a very interesting rhetorical strategy because the book is about an effort to humanize a bureaucracy.
