Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Compelling...Webster's hot-house atmosphere and collection of oddballs and freaks are brilliantly evoked...She orchestrates suspense masterfully and her writing has a quality of stillness, of effortless deliberation, which is peculiarly suited to the sense of foreboding. (Literary Review)

Full of humour, surprise and powerful images...Hustvedt's real triumph, though, is to take the ordinary and make it strange while showing how all strangeness is rooted in the ordinary. (Observer)

Told with the gripping pace of a straightforward mystery tale...A natural born storyteller (Independent)

A taut and convincing drama, as well as an intriguing metaphysical thriller (Sunday Times)

Subtle, complex and engaging (Financial Times)

Hustvedt's powerful theme of small-town mentality shows how intimacy and claustrophobia, secrets and skeletons, come out of the same closet...[an] exploration of the narrow line between imagination and reality while still managing to be a rip-roaring adventure story...beautifully written (Scotsman)

A startlingly good novel, tautly written and very sexy. (Marie Claire) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Enchantment of Lily Dahl, Hustvedt's 2nd novel 8 décembre 2010
Beautiful book, not as hauting as What I loved or as "Bell-Jar"like reading experience of The Blindfold. But beautiful anyway.
Just get and read all her books! She's that good!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can't help but give it 5 stars. 31 octobre 1999
Par Jessica ( - Publié sur
This book reminded me very much of Jonathan Carroll's type of novels. Siri Hustvedt has created a very appealing, likable heroine in Lily Dahl, and the supporting cast is wonderful. Like Carroll, Ms. Hustvedt seems to have all kinds of ideas for this novel; she can't seem to choose which genre or storyline to use, so she hops around from one type of story to another.
Ordinarily this would annoy me, with the novel beginning as a love story (or an erotic novel, take your pick), then a coming-of-age novel, then a sort of fairy-tale, then a murder mystery, then... I don't know what. Some things are never answered or explained inm this novel, but somehow even the unexplained and out-of-place parts of the novel don't irritate the reader. Rather, they enrich the story, give it all kinds of elements. Hustvedt's dream sequences, for example, wouldn't seem to have anything to do with the novel, and yet they add to it; the story wouldn't be nearly as engrossing or lovely without them.
Ultimately, even though the novel misleads you several times, The Enchantment is still a wonderful book with all kinds of elememts in it that make it strange and engaging and beautiful. Lily Dahl is a wonderful character, and I found myself wanting to read about what happens to her after the end of the book, not an easy feat for a novel.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Enchanting the Reader 22 janvier 2001
Par Eric Anderson - Publié sur
Like `The Blindfold' a self consciously post-modern novel filled with empty signs and cultural observation. What I felt her central goal in this novel was to capture the human content of a typical American woman, star-eyed and given to thoughts of her image more than thoughts of her self. At first, it seems that the story might be sacrificed for these random but poignant observations, but by the end you are left with a fragmented image of a woman, cut up by the short-sightedness of society and the misogynistic nature of men. As with her prior novel, she always keeps a tight focus on her heroine, but has succeeded to a much better end a carefully plotted narrative. Like Atwood's `The Edible Woman', the image of what the heroine sees herself to be is eaten by the woman herself, or buried in this case, in order to be redefined by the woman herself. The novel is beautifully written and an engaging read.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Check out "What I Loved" instead 11 janvier 2005
Par AppleBrownBetty - Publié sur
Lucky for us, Siri Hustvedt went on to write greater things, and we can expect even more of her as she hones her craft. "The Enchantment of Lily Dahl," he second novel, will disappoint those readers who absolutlely loved her novel "What I Loved," an emotionally gripping, sophisticatedly plotted and lyrical novel about the intersections of love, art and life in 1980s and 1990s New York City. I found nothing really enchanting or enchanted about Hustvedt's protaganist in this one, a blond buxom waitress withering as in smalltown Minnesota but hoping for a career as an actress. The story might have been about a young woman discovering something within herself and her surroundings, but instead, the reader gets a murder mystery with a psycho, as well as a handful of caricatured and unbelievable characters who all seem to love Lily Dahl but never seem to get her. Don't judge Hustvedt by this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Shall I Project a World? 6 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
"Shall I project a world?" asks Oedipa Maas in Thomas Pynchon's "The Crying of Lot 49". That is what Siri Hustvedt has done magnificently in "The Enchantment of Lily Dahl". She shows us the world of Lily, a 19-year old who lives in a small town in Minnesota, replete with Norwegian Bachelor Farmers (to borrow from Garrison Keillor) and various other strange and quirky characters. Lily works in a diner but aspires to be an actress and has, in fact, been cast as Hermia in the local production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. She feels a special affinity with Marilyn Monroe and uses her as an inspiration. This is the year of taking risks for Lily! The description of the way she brings herself to the attention of Ed Shapiro, former professor turned full-time painter, who lives opposite her is both erotic and mesmerizing - it is almost as though the scene is happening in a dream. There is a dreamlike atmosphere throughout the book and a feeling of compulsion where Lily is concerned. We often feel that she has no choice but to follow her feelings and desires. Her relationship with Mabel, a former professor in her late 70s, who successfully helps her study her part in the play and greatly improve her interpretation, is very well done. The book is full of surprises and laden with atmosphere. I recommend it highly. Just set aside some time to read it because once you start it you won't want to interrupt it for anything!!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Hustvedt : A novelist in progress 2 juin 2005
Par Annaconda - Publié sur
This book is enchanting at it's best, but at times slightly odd and contrived. Hustvedt has a knack for developing female protagonists. I enjoy her simple but rich style and it's apparent that she has compassion for human beings from all walks of life. I appreciate the risks Hustvedt takes on certain topics. She doesn't hesitate to include feelings about bodily fluids, desire; details that American writers tend to shy away from. Hustvedt obviously has a very natural view of sex and sensuality, which is shared with us as she conveys the struggles of a female coming of age. The parallels between the characters in A Midsummer Night's Dream and the townsfolk are very effective, especially in describing Lily's maturation both as an actress and as a woman. Most disappointing from this novel is the convoluted mystery that unfolds towards the end. This section should have been left out.
