9780571317721: I Saw A Man

The event that changed all of their lives happened on a Saturday afternoon in June, just minutes after Michael Turner - thinking the Nelsons' house was empty - stepped through their back door.

After the sudden loss of his wife, Michael Turner moves to London and quickly develops a close friendship with the Nelson family next door. Josh, Samantha and their two young daughters seem to represent everything Michael fears he may now never have: intimacy, children, stability and a family home. Despite this, the new friendship at first seems to offer the prospect of healing, but then a catastrophic event changes everything. Michael is left bearing a burden of grief and a secret he must keep, but the truth can only be kept at bay for so long.

Moving from London and New York to the deserts of Nevada, I Saw a Man is a brilliant exploration of violence, guilt and attempted redemption, written with the pace and grip of a thriller. Owen Sheers takes the reader from close observation of the domestic sphere to some of the most important questions and dilemmas of the contemporary world.

Recensione:

The stately prose and cool omniscience in I Saw A Man provide the perfect cover for the roiling sea of emotions under its surface. Left behind by a spouse who risked her life for a professional adventure, Michael Turner is bent to the will of an enduring grief, crying out in silence behind the masks and routines of everyday survival. His anguish becomes a black hole that pulls several lives into its inexorable gravity-including that of the guilt-wracked man who caused his wife's demise. One of the book's great strengths is how difficult it becomes to tell the good guys from the bad as the story progresses. The second half flies by, the pulse quickening as the moral landscape grows ever murkier. Settled domesticity gives way to a quietly charged, Dostoyevskian psychic chaos whose outcomes are thrillingly uncertain. ( Matthew Thomas, author of We Are Not Ourselves)

A highly original, engrossing literary thriller ... Sheers is a writer with a sharp eye for both the big picture and the lovely detail. ( Kirkus Starred Review)

Owen Sheers is a writer whose great gifts and imagination are on full display in I Saw a Man - a commodious and mesmerizing exploration of guilt and sorrow and the tangled web woven out of our lies. ( Louis Begley)

Owen Sheers is an exquisite and exceptional talent. He navigates terrain that is both globally complex and crushingly intimate -- all with a poet's quiet grace. Spectacular. This book is a prize in itself. ( Alison Wearing)

Descrizione del libro:

A gorgeously written contemporary thriller for Ian McEwan fans about responsibility and redemption
