Overview

«En un mundo sobreconectado, una voz potente y seductora observa el caos y evoca milagros. Elliott es una gran observadora, inspirada, fresca, irónica y verdadera.» Liz Jensen

«Me encantó Susurros en el megáfono... ingeniosa, oscura, devastadora y completamente original.» Topping&Company

Miriam Delaney ha pasado tres años sin salir de casa obsesionada por la muerte de su madre. No es capaz de hablar alto, solo susurra. Un día de agosto, para enfrentarse a sus miedos, decide internarse en el bosque que hay cerca de donde vive. Ralph Swoon es un psicoterapeuta que tiene dos hijos gemelos y una mujer que no corresponde a su amor. Cuando el día de su cumpleaños la encuentre en un armario besándose con una amiga, su primera reacción será salir corriendo e internarse en el bosque. Susurros en el megáfono es una historia llena de humor y vitalidad que cuenta la resurrección de Miriam y Ralph. Pero también es una novela sobre la incomunicación que tiene lugar precisamente en la época de la obsesión por las redes sociales.

“She sits on the bench and tries to gather herself. She has heard this phrase a lot, gather yourself, but what does it mean? Is the self a collection of visible parts that can be pulled together in preparation for something or reassembled after a breakage? Miriam spends half an hour thinking about what it might be like to accidentally on purpose mix up the components of herself with those of another person - a woman, perhaps, who is also in the middle of gathering herself, a woman who has left the pieces of her character scattered on the grass in this small park…” Whispers Through a Megaphone is the first novel by British author, Rachel Elliott. The story, told through a straight narrative interspersed with tweets from various people, throws together a myriad of very different characters and elements, a sample of which are: a thirty-five-year-old woman who speaks only in whispers, and has not left her home for three years; a gardener-turned-psychotherapist who discovers on his thirty-seventh birthday that his marriage is not what he thought it was; a wife who tweets her whole life; Also important are: a red and white megaphone; a handful of cryptic postcards; a quirky but supportive friend; a young man who cannot ignore the family secret he has overheard; a boy with a Dr Who passion; a helpful neighbour in a red velour tracksuit; a couple of old flames; a pair of very different twins; a ginger cat named Treacle; a cruel and crazy mother, now deceased; an absent father; and a shack in the woods. Elliott takes the reader on a slightly bizarre roller-coaster ride that involves quite a few twists and turns before ultimately coming to a heart-warming conclusion. Even though this novel is written by a British author, the narrative has a somewhat American feel to it. This outstanding debut novel is funny, clever and even a bit thought-provoking.
