Über diesen Titel

Críticas:

"A brilliantly constructed debut set in the aftermath of catastrophic loss."--2015 Man Booker Prize Judges (Longlist Finalist)

"Full of small-town secrets and whispers, Bill Clegg has woven a richly textured tale of loss and healing. This is a deeply optimistic book about the power of human sympathy to pull us from the wreckage of our fate."--Man Booker Prize-winning novelist Anne Enright

"I marveled my way through Did You Ever Have a Family, at not just the masterful writing and storytelling, but at the emotional authenticities of every persuasion. It's a wondrous thing when a writer gets things this right, this absorbing, and this beautiful. Bravo, Bill Clegg, and thank you."--Bestselling author Elinor Lipman

"The force, range, and scope of Bill Clegg's Did You Ever Have a Family will grab you with its opening lines, and won't let go until its final one. I can't recall another novel that so effortlessly weds a nuanced, lyrical voice to an unflinching vision of just how badly things can go for people. I read it deep into the night, all the way through, telling myself it was getting late, I could finish the book in the morning. I finished it that night, however, slept a few hours, and then, in the morning, started reading it again."--Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham

"Like the question it poses, Did You Ever Have a Family is brutally direct yet it's got an enormous symbolic power. You hold in your hands a great book of kindness--every restrained, exquisite sentence comes loaded for bear. It's been a lot of years since a novel has so moved me. Number Bill Clegg among that endangered species: major American writer."--National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author Darin Strauss

PRAISE FOR DID YOU EVER HAVE A FAMILY

"Masterly...The vignettes provide deft reprieves, a mosaic of a community and its connection to the tragedy. And connection--the way people and their lives fuse--is this novel's main concern."--The New York Times Book Review

"An attempt to map how the unbearable is borne, elegantly written and bravely imagined."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A propulsive but tightly crafted narrative... reveal[s] the fine-grained sorrows of the human condition, rendered in polished, quietly captivating prose. As the stories emerge, so do their connections--and the idea of connection itself.... Readers may come to this debut novel because of agent/memoirist Clegg's reputation, but they'll stay for the stellar language and storytelling. Highly recommended."--Library Journal, starred review

"In this sorrowful and deeply probing debut novel, literary agent and memoirist Clegg (Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man) delivers a story of loss and its grueling aftermath . . . it's Clegg's deft handling of all the parsed details--missed opportunities, harbored regrets, and unspoken good intentions--that make the journey toward redemption and forgiveness so memorable."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Clegg is both delicately lyrical and emotionally direct in this masterful novel, which strives to show how people make bearable what is unbearable, offering consolation in small but meaningful gestures. Both ineffably sad and deeply inspiring, this mesmerizing novel makes for a powerful debut."--Booklist, starred review
