Über diesen Titel


Book by Krauss Nicole


A complex, richly imagined new novel Krauss 's talent runs deep. And she cannot write a bad sentence: pound for pound, the sentences alone deliver epiphany upon epiphany. --Janet Byrne

Starred Review. This stunning work showcases Krauss's consistent talent.... Much like in Krauss's The History of Love, the sharply etched characters seem at first arbitrarily linked across time and space, but Krauss pulls together the disparate elements, settings, characters, and fragile connective tissue to form a formidable and haunting mosaic of loss and profound sorrow. "

While her prior, much-vaunted novel, The History of Love, was certainly fresh and winning, Great House strikes me as a richer, more seasoned exploration of the themes and images that bedevil Krauss Krauss sentences are so beautiful, rendered in such simple, clear language, I had to stop to reread many. --Joan Frank"

The most heartbreaking part of Great House, the third novel by Nicole Krauss, is having to finish it As the mysteries of this beautifully written novel come spooling out, you ll marvel at how profoundly one brilliantly crafted metaphor involving a mute wooden artifact can remind us what it means to be alive. --Rachel Rosenblit"

Krauss organic scenes soar, she is stunning. --Karen R. Long"

Surely if there is one book each author is meant to write, then there might also be one book each reader is meant to read. For plenty of fans out there, Great House just might be that book. "

Krauss has a unique way of assembling novels baroque, complex, and with stunning tidiness that isn t clear until the very last page. All the parts do fit together in the end. The shape they form is the ghastly Great House, and its walls are ideas that leave the reader reverberating. --Jennie Rothenberg Gritz"

Steeped in place and memory, Great House is a worthy successor to Krauss earlier works, more complex and more challenging. --Robin Vidimos"

Krauss third novel is perhaps even more indicative [than The History of Love] of her ability to weave intricate storylines, craft emotionally layered characters and expertly draw out the pain, difficulty, and extreme complexity of human relationships. --Juliet Linderman"

Starred Review: Krauss masterful rendition of character is breathtaking, compelling.... This tour de force of fiction writing will deeply satisfy fans of the author s first two books and bring her legions more."
