Patrick AndersonThe war correspondent Scott Anderson, who has reported from such hot spots as Sarajevo, Beirut and Chechnya, sets his new novel in 1983 in a fictional Middle Eastern kingdom called Kutar. He has done so, I think, to distance himself from today's headlines and seek a certain timelessness. Moonlight Hotel is a tour de force, variously satire, allegory, romance, war novel and scathing attack on American military and diplomatic policies. If you think our foreign adventures are all too often the work of knaves, hypocrites and fools, you will love this novel.
