I am Radar

Reif Larsen

Research output: Book/ReportBook


A kaleidoscopic, epic novel about a lovestruck radio operator who discovers a secret society…

In 1975, a black child is mysteriously born to white parents. His name is Radar Radmanovic. Falling in with a secretive group of puppeteers and scientists who stage performances in war zones around the world, he is soon forced to confront the true nature of his identity.

Though Radar is raised in suburban New Jersey, his story rapidly becomes entangled with events stretching from Belgrade in a time of siege to arctic Norway, from Cambodia in the years before the murderous Khmer Rouge regime to the modern-day Congo.

It explores the furthest reaches of quantum physics, forgotten history and human experience. It’s also about one man, one family and how far you may need to travel to know yourself.

I Am Radar is greater than all of its remarkable parts, a breathtaking, highly addictive joyride that finally arrives at a place of wonder.
