9780007548323: We Are Not Ourselves

LONGLISTED FOR THE GUARDIAN FIRST BOOK AWARD

‘A long gorgeous epic, full of love and life and caring … one of the best novels you’ll read this year’ New York Times

‘It’s all here: how we live, how we love, how we die, how we carry on … It’s humbling and heartening to read a book this good’ Joshua Ferris

Eileen Leary wants more. Raised in a downtrodden area of new York by hard-drinking, Irish immigrant parents, she dreams of another life: a better job, a bigger house, more respectable friends, a happy family. When she meets Ed Leary, a brilliant young scientist, she thinks she’s found the perfect partner to pursue and share her American Dream with. An indefatigable love enters Eileen’s life – but so too does a pervasive darkness and a loss that will last a lifetime.

Book Description:

‘Extraordinary … Intensely moving … ‘We Are Not Ourselves’ took 10 years to write, and justifies every one of them.’ Helen Dunmore, Guardian

‘Matthew Thomas’s ambitious first novel presents the life of one woman from cradle to late middle-age, and the changing backdrop of New York. Terrific’ The Times

‘An honest, intimate family story with the power to rock you to your core … One of the frankest novels ever written about love between a caregiver and a person with a degenerative disease … Thomas spares nothing and still makes it clear how deeply in love these soul mates are … [It] will reduce anyone who ever had a parent to helpless tears.’ New York Times

‘Unflinching and heartbreaking … The pain leaps from the page but so too does the love … epic in scale, subject and compassion … If Matthew Thomas writes nothing else, ‘We Are Not Ourselves’ will stand as a magnificent achievement.’ 5* review, Sunday Express

‘The greatest Alzheimer’s novel yet … Visionary and challenging … Marvellous.’ New Yorker

‘A powerfully moving book.’ Chad Harbach
