Overview

In Italia anilor ’60, Signor Giorgio, un pictor de naturi moarte, traieste obsedat de redarea pe panza a relatiilor de lumini si umbre dintre obiecte. Bolnav de cancer, isi asteapta sfarsitul si tine un jurnal in care face consideratii despre arta, istorie, razboi, viata. La moartea lui, o tanara oarba ii ingrijeste mormantul, incercand sa inteleaga lumea pe care nu o mai poate vedea. Ani mai tarziu, in Cumbria, un pictor celebru pentru peisajele sale montane spectaculoase, pe care le exploreaza personal, ramane imobilizat intre stanci, moment in care isi evalueaza propria viata. In Londra zilelor noastre, fiica lui, Susan, artista si curator al unei sali de expozitii, traieste foarte acut drama mortii fratelui ei geaman si isi gaseste refugiul intr-o lume a tenebrelor si a abandonului sexual, in cautarea propriului eu.

Un roman complex, scris in patru registre, pe patru voci distincte, ale caror destine se intersecteaza intr-o relatie subtila.



"Un stil liric atat de maiestrit lucrat si o savoare pe care aproape ca o poti gusta."

Daily Mail



"Viata interioara a eroilor lui Sarah Hall se dezvaluie cu sensibilitate in aceasta minunata impletitura de voci distincte."

The Times



"Scrierea lui Hall este deopotriva puternica si delicata. O carte cu stil, plina de idei."

Guardian



"Sarah Hall scrie o proza fina, luminoasa, de o intensitate poetica remarcabila, si sunt in acest roman scene de o frumusete stralucitoare."

Daily Telegraph

Good To Know

"Well, most of the jobs I have done have galvanized the idea that I want to be doing something completely different, like writing. These include working in a meat factory on a 6 a.m. shift to the 6 p.m. shift, working in a mail-order fly-fishing outlet (I always sent out the wrong size of sedge out, making fishermen and fisherwomen all over the UK irate I'm sure), walking dogs, fitting spectacles, pulling pints of beer, and selling horrible art."

"I occasionally make things out of salvaged material, creepy Victorian shadow-box looking constructs, and am consequently quite partial to glue."

"Drivers who do not acknowledge thanks when I've let their car filter into my traffic lane make me furious. Ah, yes, and if I'm holding the door open for you, and you're a man, please don't take it from me and try to make me go in first."

"To unwind, I'm a bit of a keen fell walker (fells are mountain in the north of England). I also enjoy jumping up and down on the same spot, joyfully, like a kid. Any kind of watery expanse brings me peace and makes me feel like I'm home -- I was born and brought up right by a river and it's very likely that I haven't ever been drained properly. I'm really keen on folk art. I like frogs and peanut butter -- not together though, that wouldn't taste good."
