Shortlisted for the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award. When Fintan Buckley develops an interest in old autochrome photographs, strange things start to happen. To all appearances, Fintan holds down a successful job and enjoys life with his conventional middle-class family in Dublin, yet inwardly he starts to experience states of altered consciousness, with unsettling hallucinations and sudden insights. Meanwhile, Fintan's sister Marina has been unearthing family stories from the past and the two of them, in different ways, find themselves renegotiating their history and the decisions that have brought them to this place, this present.

Recensione:
'With her latest offering, Madden adds a consummately crafted novel to an already formidable body of work ... By the end of the book the reader realises that Madden - cleverly, playfully, with sly wit and real skill - has translated this intellectual and poetic expression of time into a deeply moving portrait of domestic and family life. (Adam O'Riordan Sunday Telegraph)

This is an exalting story that celebrates the survival of fragile folk, and revels in the mysteries of the commonplace. An outstanding book. (Mary Shine Thompson Irish Independent)

Confiding and measured, and allows fantasy to challenge memory and yet remain the truth. (Mary Leland Irish Examiner)

Enthralling ... Elegantly written, deeply reflective and beautifully shaped, this rich and luminous novel is more daring than it seems. It is an understated little masterpiece. (╔ilÝs NÝ Dhuibhne Irish Times)

'The novel begins as a low-key domestic drama before developing into a compelling meditation on memory, transience and loss ... I found it exquisitely done. (David Evans Financial Times)

This is a subtle, deeply thoughtful novel, its tone so clear that the writing plays over character and action like water over stones ... This beguiling novel is also a clear-eyed, even forensic study of a family crammed with secrets to the point of sickness, reflecting a wider society that bolts down consumer goods in order to purge itself of the past. (Helen Dunmore Guardian)

Since her 1986 debut,Hidden Symptoms, she has been investigating the relation between past and present with understated thoroughness ... Madden's clear, precise prose allows us to share Fintan's heightened, near-supernatural awareness, as does her trick of alternately drawing back to survey decades and homing in on a single moment. (Hannah Rosefield Observer)

Where does it all begin, indeed, life in all its complexity? Nothing distinguishes the Buckleys but Madden's decision to invent them, to reveal their lives in all their ordinariness, to the reader. It is this democratic gesture and its philosophical implications that lift Madden's book from just very good to great. (Sara Keating Sunday Business Post)

Gentle, ruminative novel ... suffuses the mundanity of family life with something timeless. (Adam Lively Sunday Times)

'In exploring the past, Madden reminds us of the personal dramas that occurred long before worries of crashing economies. The reader is left with a sense of longevity rather than fatalism, a reminder that, details aside, the world goes on. (Press Association)

Paperback. Condizione: new. Paperback. Fintan Buckley is a pleasant, rather conventional and unimaginative man, who works as a legal adviser in an import/export firm in Dublin. He lives in Howth and is married to Colette. They have two sons who are at university, and a small daughter.As he goes about his life, working and spending time with his family, Fintan begins to experience states of altered consciousness and auditory hallucinations, which seem to take him out of a linear experience of time. He becomes interested in how we remember or imagine the past, an interest trigged by becoming aware of early photography, particularly early colour photography. He also finds himself thinking more about his own past, including time spent holidaying in the north of Ireland as a child with his father's family. Over the years he has become distanced from them, and in the course of the novel this link is re-established and helps to bring him understanding and peace, although in a most unexpected way.Time Present and Time Past, Deirdre Madden's eighth novel for adults, is about time: about how not just daily life and one's own, or one's family's past, intersect with each other. A brilliant and beautiful new novel from the acclaimed and much-loved author of Molly Fox's Birthday. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Codice articolo 9780571290871
