One snowy December morning in an old European city, an American man leaves his shabby hotel to meet a local woman who has agreed to help him search for an apartment to rent. The Apartment follows the couple across a blurry, illogical, and frozen city into a past the man is hoping to forget, and leaves them at the doorstep of an uncertain future, their cityscape punctuated by the man’s lingering memories of time spent in Iraq and the life he abandoned in the United States.

Contained within the details of this day is a complex meditation on America’s relationship with the rest of the world, an unflinching glimpse at the permanence of guilt and despair, and an exploration into our desire to cure violence with violence.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Clever, entertaining, brave, it stretches the rules while following a man through one day of his life. I loved it.”

    Roddy Doyle, author of The Commitments

  • “The novel shines most in the telling-the slow, deliberate narrative unfolds like a quiet symphony, and Baxter’s prose lingers inexplicably, like a beautifully sad song.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Admirable for its scope, ambition and unashamed seriousness of purpose, as well as its willingness to take stylistic and structural risks.”

    Observer
