Titel: Scenes from Early Life: A Novel
Verlag: Faber & Faber
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Scenes from Early Life " Scenes from Early Life is a triumph, an astonishing feat of empathy and narrative virtuosity. It deserves to be garlanded with many prizes, and nowhere more so than in the Indian subcontinent." -Amitav Ghosh, author of River of Smoke and Sea of Poppies "Hensher has created a greater thing than just a record of childhood, or war. It probably isn't Zaved's story anymore, but it's great just the same." -Bella Bathurst, The Observer "One of the most delightful and engaging descriptions of family life to have been published for many years . . . Saturated with gentleness, humour and affection." -Amanda Craig, The Independent on Sunday "Hensher proves himself a literary god of small things, from chillies drying on [Saadi's] grandfather's balcony to the oppressive clutter of Saadi's parents' first marital home . . . As this book movingly shows, appropriation is sometimes an act of love." -Adrian Turpin, Financial Times "A richly depicted saga of childhood joys and sorrows . . . This is [Hensher's] most purely pleasurable novel to date." -Michael Arditti, The Daily Mail "A book suffused with tenderness, yet altogether free from sentimentality. One feels the writing has been a labour of love. Perhaps this is why the experience of reading it is so delightful." -Allan Massie, The Scotsman. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0865477612
