9780571305285: All My Puny Sorrows

Shortlisted for the Folio Prize 2015

Sunday Times Top Choice Summer Read

Elf and Yoli are two smart, loving sisters.

Elf is a world-renowned pianist, glamorous, wealthy, happily married: she wants to die.

Yoli is divorced, broke, sleeping with the wrong men: she desperately wants to keep her older sister alive.

When Elf's latest suicide attempt leaves her hospitalised weeks before her highly anticipated world tour, Yoli is forced to confront the impossible question of whether it is better to let a loved one go.

Miriam Toews's All My Puny Sorrows, at once tender and unquiet, offers a profound reflection on the limits of love, and the sometimes unimaginable challenges we experience when childhood becomes a new country of adult commitments and responsibilities.

'The novel she has written - so exquisitely that you'll want to savour every word - reads as if it has been wrenched from her heart.' Christina Patterson, Sunday Times

'[Miriam Toews] has produced a masterly book of such precise dignity. It is, also against all the odds, at times a desperately humorous novel.' Daily Mail

'Toews takes her place alongside Alice Munro, Robertson Davies, Margaret Atwood and Mordicai Richler as the loveliest quintet of Canadian writing.' Los Angeles Times

Recensione:

One of those rare novels destined to become a lifelong companion. This magnificently written story of two sisters, one of whom is determined to take her own life and asks the other for assistance, is shockingly funny, deeply wise and utterly heartbreaking. (Naomi Klein Guardian)

You need to go into this book prepared to have your heart ripped to pieces, but at the same time you will find yourself laughing out loud. I've been a big fan of Miriam Toews ever since I read A Complicated Kindness. This book is an exquisitely written, poignant, painfully intense story about two sisters, one of whom is asking the unthinkable of the other. (Liane Moriarty)

Sadness might be the central theme of the novel, but it isn't the dominant tone. From its arresting opening sentence to its heart-catching last line, it is jaunty, matter-of-fact and full of zest and verve ... as in her other novels, Toews writes in a cool, deceptively simple voice that moves seamlessly between the memory of past joy and the sometimes surprising banality of present pain. This often edges towards poetry ... The novel she has written - so exquisitely that you'll want to savour every word - reads as if it has been wrenched from her heart. (Christina Patterson Sunday Times)

Toews' remarkable novel ... ironic for a book with self-annihilation as its subject, bursts with ramshackle, precious life. Full of eccentricities and casual, apposite quoting of literature, its tragicomedy and humaneness recall the best of John Irving. (Catherine Taylor Sunday Telegraph)

To write powerful fiction out of personal events of such magnitude is hard, surely almost unbearably so, but the result is a novel that reaches beyond the limits of itself. (Sophie Elmhirst Financial Times)

The mixture of grief, numbness, and a sensation of being removed from one's life and observing from above, are starkly captured ... Toews captures perfectly the conflicting feelings when a loved one wants to die: sorrow, confusion, guilt, frustration and even anger. Yet, unbelievably, this book is full of humour ... This is a powerful and enthralling book. Toews has previously been long-listed for the Orange (now Baileys) Prize. I hope to see this on prize lists in the near future. (Leyla Sanai Independent)

[Toews] has produced a masterly book of such precise dignity. It is, also against all the odds, at times a desperately humorous novel. ( Daily Mail)

[T]his excellent book tells a difficult story with dazzling lightness of touch ... Very smart, very funny, and completely heartbreaking. ( Metro)
