Why do we fall in love with the people we do? Why do we visit our mistakes on our children? What makes life truly beautiful?

Set between New England and London, On Beauty concerns a pair of feuding families - the Belseys and the Kipps - and a clutch of doomed affairs. It puts low morals among high ideals and asks some searching questions about what life does to love. For the Belseys and the Kipps, the confusions - both personal and political - of our uncertain age are about to be brought close to home: right to the heart of family.

Descrizione libro Paperback. Condizione: new. Paperback. When Howard Belsey's oldest son Jerome falls for Victoria, the stunning daughter of the right-wing Monty Kipps, both families find themselves thrown together, enacting a cultural and personal war against each other. Howard Belsey, a Rembrandt scholar who doesnt like Rembrandt, is an En glishman abroad and a long-suffering Professor at Wellington, a New En gland Liberal Arts college. He has been married for thirty years to K iki, an American woman who no longer resembles the sexy activist she o nce was.Their three children passionately pursue their own paths; Levi quests after authentic blackness, Zora believes that intellectuals ca n redeem everybody, and Jerome struggles to be a believer in a family of strict atheists. Faced with the oppressive enthusiasms of his child ren, Howard feels that the first two acts of his life are over and he has no clear plans for the finale. Or the encore. Then Jerome, Howard s oldest son, falls for Victoria, the stunning daughter of the right-w ing icon Monty Kipps. Increasingly, the two families find themselves thrown together in a beautiful corner of America, enacting a cultural and personal war against the background of real wars that they barely register. An infidelity, a death, then an unexpected legacy set in mo tion a chain of events which sees all parties forced to examine the un articulated assumptions that underpin their lives. How do you choose the work on which to spend your life? Why do you love the people you love? Do you really believe what you claim to? And what are the real ly beautiful things in life and how far will you go to get them? Set on both sides of the Atlantic, Zadie Smiths third novel is a brilliant analysis of family life, the institution of marriage, intersections o f the personal and political, and an honest look at peoples deceptions . It is also, as you might expect, very funny indeed. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Codice articolo 9780141026664
