Über diesen Titel


Unusual book


The People's Act of Love is the best and most original book that I have read for years. -- Louis de Bernieres Spellbinding. -- Irvine Welsh Startlingly original. * * Mail on Sunday (The People's Act of Love) * * One of the best novels published for years. * * Independent (The People's Act of Love) * * Meek is excellent at evoking an Afghanistan of mulberry groves and old broken Soviet tanks, jagged mountains and craters where wedding parties once danced ... as an exploration of the effects of 9/11 on the Western psyche, it's fascinating. -- Anita Pati * * Time Out * * An unusual, challenging and memorable read. -- Andrew Ffrench * * Oxford Times * * This is a truthful and powerful novel. Does it come anywhere near the Greatest War Reporter Novel podium, whose only occupant, Evelyn Waugh's Scoop, has stood there without serious challenge for 70 years? I think it does. It might have got a little nearer to toppling that great cynic's romp if it weren't for the fact that this is at heart a novel about much more: it's about love, friendship and the struggle to be true in a world that has lost its grip on certainties. -- Alex Renton * * Statesman * * A hugely satisfying novel, cleverly constructed, one of the best I have read for some time. * * Revish * * Meek shares with Hitchcock a heightened understanding of the possibilities and limitations of his medium . . . And, like Hitchcock, he pairs this sophistication with a commitment to entertainment. -- Lorraine Adams * * Bookforum * * Meek exhibits such a knowing sense of humour . . . typically audacious. * * New Yorker * *
