Descrizione libro Doubleday, 2012. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Winner of the PEN New England Award for Literary Excellence in Fiction "Fantastic" -- Vanity Fair "An absorbing meditation on female competition with Hitchcockian twists.Gripping" -- Entertainment Weekly "Darkly comic.sharp-eyed, sardonic, hilarious.Julavits is at her acrobatically linguistic best here. Nearly every page contains a showstopping description or insight.narrative voice is superb. Funny, self-deprecating, exquisitely attuned.Vivid.Remarkable.Heartbreaking." -- New York Times Book Review "Open The Vanishers to any page and you''ll find some of the snappiest dialogue going. Stylish and fiercely funny, Heidi Julavits''s fourth novel explores the imagined dangers and dizzying thrills of being a career psychic.Julavits is a fearlessly inventive writer, a risk-taker who never shies away from prickly, tangled, often meaphorical emotional darkness and constantly strikes out into unexplored territory.the sharply original narrative, which moves at top speed, [is] always entertaining and full of curiosities, deadpan banter, and metaphysical playfulness.a wild, fun ride that doesn''t let up until the last sentence." -- Elle "Heidi Julavits has a questing, eclectic intellect.wry wit and linguistic exuberance. She creates a sophisticated symmetry in the final surprising moments of Julia's story, and, as if in an encore, adds an adroit comic flip at the end." -- Boston Globe "The protagonist could join the ranks of literature's most unreliable narrators alongside Humbert Humbert" -- Wall Street Journal "Sharp-eyed, sardonic" --New York Times, Editor''s Choice "Part coming-of-age story, part murder mystery, part absurdist romp, part neurological novel. I loved it.Julavtis'' characters are as earnestly bizarre as Haruki Murakami''s, and she''s as funny as Lorrie Moore.wonderful and interesting complications.Julavits is so smart and funny, and her writing is so good." -- San Francisco Chronicle "Ms. Julavits is a keen observer of the high drama.An evocative writer, she conjures up the supernatural in a way that feels plausible.Lavish.Haunting" -- The Economist "Thrilling, subversive insights.powerful in many ways.On the subject of loss in particular, Julavits is an expert, writing with eloquence and poetry.sturdy intellectualism.achieves a deepening of the novel''s wisdom and insight.delivers a thunderclap of real feeling" -- Philadelphia Inquirer "A blistering read. Female aggression may lurk everywhere, but Julavits decides to unleash her antagonists in a quirky realm, the fictional Institute of Integrated Parapsychology, a New Hampshire school for students of the occult.funny, satiric and savage.the visceral kick of Julavits'' prose.will provide a similar jolt of transgressive, feminine thrill." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer "Julavits is no ordinary writer, and the meta -heavy brilliance of her fourth novel is something akin to a Sylvia Plath poem transferred telepathically to a psychic who happens to be solving a missing-person''s case while being film-followed by artist Sophie Calle." -- Interview "Fantastic, deep and complicated.explores the way loss, disappointment, anger, deception and trauma can bleed down from generation to generation.a complicated, often troubling meditation on the complexities of relationships." --Boston Phoenix "Bristling with wicked humor and sharp-edged irony, The Vanishers explores the ways in which the dead can haunt the living and the often painful persistence of memory" -- Huffington Post "Clever.funny, affecting.an ambitious world that reveals the depths of matriarchal power structure.At the same time, Julavits does some clever twisting to the classic revenge plot.satisfying in all its attempts as a robust mystery, satire of academia, and finicky family drama." --Grantland "Intelligent and ambitious"- - Kirkus Reviews "Wry, witty.magical, and Julavits''s often acerbic prose generates laughs despite the sad reality" -- Publish.
