Descrizione libro Random House Trade Paperbacks, 2011. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A deeply compassionate and artfully crafted novel. - O, The Oprah Magazine In The Writing Life, Annie Dillard advises would-be writers to find their bone, the thing that drives them to write&.Monique Truongs bone is the outsiders plight, and her pen is a scalpel, laying perfect words down along that nerve until even the happiest reader understands what it means to forever stand apart from your family and the larger society you inhabit. -- Los Angeles Times Fast-moving and beautifully strange&.[Lindas] tasting words&quickly becomes second nature and eventually, metaphorical poetry. It has a poignancy that sneaks up on you, just like Truongs entire clever tale. -- Time Out New York A flavorful, haunting journey&.Truong is a powerful writer. -- The Oregonian Truongs mesmerizing prose beautifully captures [the heroines] taste-saturated world, and her portrait of a broken familys secretive pockets and genuine moments of connection is affecting. - Publishers Weekly (Pick of the Week, starred review) Absorbing . . . Truong is a gifted storyteller, and in this quietly powerful novel she has created a compelling and unique character. - Booklist (starred review) "Monique Truongs Bitter in the Mouth , every word a taste, is a revelation of wit and heart and stunning talent. Truong invents Americana for a new America: from Great Uncle Harper to Dr Pepper and the Wright Brothers, she shades her classic coming of age tale with a magical ferocity that recalls Doctorow and Nabokov. Bitter in the Mouth is a soulful hymn to the hands we fashion with the cards were dealt." -Jayne Anne Phillips "Be prepared for a full range of tastes of life in Bitter in the Mouth : friendship, loyalty, love, family, and above all, the mysteries at every corner of ones history that make us who we are. Monique Truong is a great observer and a beautiful writer." -Yiyun Li "Monique Truong creates a world so subtle, mysterious, moving and sensory that it heightens our consciousness of those qualities in our own. Bitter in the Mouthis the rare novel that makes one life story unique and universal at the same time." -Gloria Steinem From the Hardcover edition. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0812981324

Descrizione libro Random House Trade, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 200 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Bitter in the Mouth is a brilliant, virtuosic novel about a young woman s search for identity and the true meaning of family. What I know about you, little girl, would break you in two are the prophetic last words that Linda Hammerick s grandmother says to her. Growing up in small-town North Carolina in the 1970s and 80s, Linda already knows that she is profoundly different from everyone else, including the members of her own family. She can taste words. In this and in other ways, her body is a mystery to her. Linda s awkward girlhood is nonetheless enlivened and emboldened by her dancing great-uncle Harper, and Kelly, her letter-writing best friend. Linda makes her way north to college and then to New York City, trying her best to leave her past behind her like a pair of shoes that no longer fit. But when a family tragedy compels her to return home, Linda uncovers the startling secrets of her past. Monique Truong s acclaimed novel questions our assumptions about what it means to be a family and to be a friend, to be foreign and to be familiar, to be connected to and disconnected from our bodies, our histories, ourselves. Look for special features inside. Join the Circle for author chats and more. Codice libro della libreria AAS9780812981322
