9780099549222: A Possible Life

From the author of Birdsong and A Week in December comes a dazzling new Sunday Times bestseller

Terrified, a young prisoner in the Second World War closes his eyes and pictures himself going out to bat on a sunlit cricket ground in Hampshire.

Across the courtyard in a Victorian workhouse, a father too ashamed to acknowledge his son.

A skinny girl steps out of a Chevy with a guitar; her voice sends shivers through the skull.

Soldiers and lovers, parents and children, scientists and musicians risk their bodies and hearts in search of connection – some key to understanding what makes us the people we become.

Provocative and profound, Sebastian Faulks’s dazzling novel journeys across continents and time to explore the chaos created by love, separation and missed opportunities. From the pain and drama of these highly particular lives emerges a mysterious consolation: the chance to feel your heart beat in someone else’s life.

Recensione:

"It does what any good novel should – it unsettles, it moves, and it forces us to question who we are" ( Sunday Times)

"A delight… A tightly written, moving and exciting" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Faulks is a writer who gets better and better; he understands how to draw a reader in." ( Daily Mail)

" A Possible Life is more than the sum of its parts . . . the stories acquire power as resonances between them accrete. Only at the end do you realise you’ve been won over by their quiet, glinting virtuosity" ( The Times)

"Profound… Faulks evokes a deep compassion for all his troubled characters…exploring big ideas without compromising the human drama" ( Observer)

"Faulk’s most intriguing fictional offering... Moving...engaging...poignant" ( Independent on Sunday)

"The storytelling is crisp, the characters sympathetic and the philosophical themes thought-provoking" ( Mail on Sunday)

"The writing is masterfully controlled, without a word wasted. Avoiding excess emotion, Faulks evokes a deep compassion for all his troubled characters and by extension, for all of us who share their condition" ( Observer)

"Within these pages we find some of his best writing." ( Literary Review)

"Sublime . . . a hauntingly beautiful exploration of the frailties and strengths of the human heart" ( Easy Living)
