Description du produit

Revue de presse

'I devoured it. It's terrifically good ... so compelling, and I love the real immediate sensual actuality of the lives food and paint and clothes and drink and kitchens and sex and smells and sounds and light and the utterly believable double life of Maurice and above all the way you do childhood women friends and mothers and daughters. It is utterly engrossing and impossible to stop reading. Really, it's a beautiful book' -- Hermione Lee

'Michèle Roberts is a magnificent writer' -- Helen Dunmore, Guardian

'Poised, merciless tale whose beautiful writing scarcely eases the pain' -- Lesley McDowell, Scotsman

'A gripping story of fear, arrests and personal tragedy' -- Independent

'Splashes of bright colour against an otherwise bleak backdrop symbolise glimpses of hope and female freedom throughout the novel, unconsciously (and unfortunately) reminiscent of Spielberg's Schindler's List' -- Ophelia Field, Literary Review

'Moving and involving ... The very richness of the novel's imagery emphasises the paltriness of its characters' threadbare experiences of life ... As every reader knows - or soon discovers - that deprivation need not circumscribe imagination' -- The Times

'A powerfully immersive and moving novel' -- Stephanie Cross, Independent on Sunday

'Michele Roberts is one of those writers descended perhaps as much from Monet and Debussy as Virginia Woolf or Keats ... To read a book by her is to savour colour, sound, taste, texture and touch as never before' -- The Times

'Her fictions are high-risk, unconventional ... The otherwise cautious reader is taken almost without realising it into dangerous and exhilarating territory' -- Rachel Cusk

'Powerful and lyrical ... Her deceptively simple narrative provides a devastating critique of religious hypocrisy and bourgeois morality, couched in gloriously pointillist prose' --Michael Arditti Daily Mail

Présentation de l'éditeur

A stunning war-time novel set in France from Booker-shortlisted author Michèle Roberts

After every war there are stories that are locked away like bluebottles in drawers and kept silent. But sometimes the past can return: in the smell of carbolic soap, in whispers darting through a village after mass, in the colour of an undelivered letter.

Jeanne Nerin and Marie-Angèle Baudry grow up, side by side yet apart, in the village of Ste Madeleine. Marie-Angèle is the daughter of the grocer, inflated with ideas of her own piety and rightful place in society. Jeanne's mother washes clothes for a living. She used to be a Jew until this became too dangerous. Jeanne does not think twice about grasping the slender chances life throws at her. Marie-Angèle does not grasp; she aspires to a future of comfort and influence.

When war falls out of the sky, along with it tumbles a new, grown-up world. The village must think on its feet, play its part in a game for which no one knows the rules. Not even the dubious hero with 'business contacts' who sweeps Marie-Angèle off her feet. Not even the reclusive artist living alone with his sensual, red canvases. In these uncertain times, the enemy may be hiding in your garden shed and the truth is all too easily buried under a pyramid of recriminations.

Michèle Roberts's new novel is a mesmerising exploration of guilt, faith, desire and judgment, bringing to life a people at war in a way that is at once lyrical and shocking.
