The Pure Gold Baby is the story of Anna, a little girl with a luminescent quality, her mother, Jess, and the community that envelops them. A happy child, Anna is the unchanging core of this journey spanning decades and continents through the lives of those that love her. This profoundly engaging portrait of family, friendship, and the way we care for each other is a powerful reminder, if one were needed, of Margaret Drabble's literary greatness.

Recensione:

Extraordinary and intriguing (SADIE JONES author of The Outcast)

The Pure Gold Baby is an unexpected gift from a great author. How do we treat the child who walks among us in a different way than most? In Margaret Drabble's hands the answer is with a depth of empathy few master. Fortunately for us, Drabble has spent a lifetime doing just that in exquisitely written prose (ALICE SEBOLD author of The Lovely Bones)

Moving and meditative (MEG WOLITZER New Yorker)

Superb ... a richly complex narrative voice achieves a choric magnificence hardly equalled in her earlier work (Stevie Davies Independent)

Involving and unexpectedly rich . . . a magnificent novel that confirms Drabble's status as a national treasure (Daily Mail)

Subtle . . . The cadences of the prose, the kind of language used, the words that are chosen, echo the passing of the years . . . absorbing (Kirsty Gunn Financial Times)

Its prose has an almost folkloric quality . . . Characters, plotlines and themes swirl and proliferate (Alex Clark Observer)

Drabble's intelligence and compassion make it a hugely rewarding read (Mail on Sunday)

A unique and profoundly stirring book (Elizabeth Day Observer)

Written with compassion and bathed in a poignant glow (Stylist)

Her distinctive narrative voice and soaring prose remain electrifying (Spectator)

Achingly wise (Wall Street Journal)

One of the most thought-provoking and intellectually challenging writers around (Financial Times)

The book succeeds as both a social critique and a sensitive view of the agonies and joys of raising disabled children . . . Insightful and wise, The Pure Gold Baby chronicles the deep challenges of parenting under any circumstances - yet it also captures the almost unbearable vulnerability of being human (Boston Globe)

Her [Drabble's] prose is graceful and flowing . . . This is a quiet, contemplative novel . . . a moving testament to love, loyalty, and friendships between women . . . a poignant but ultimately uplifting tale (Independent)

Drabble richly recreates that place and that environment [1960's North London] . . . Contained in the story, in fact, is a history of ideas about the mentally disturbed and the treatment of them. This is a tough assignment, and Drabble's brilliance appears here . . . while it reads very easily and seductively as a naturalistic novel, it slowly builds up a sense of wide horizons that one has never seen in quite the same way before (The Times)

A jigsaw; its ambitious themes of parenthood, innocence, wounded children, anthropology, literature, madness, ageing, illness and love juxtaposed (Jane Shilling Telegraph)

The trick to reading the novel is to go with the flow as Drabble does, gliding into each event, laced with her dry, witty snaps of changing times of what was in the 1950s-'60s and what is now (Sydney Morning Herald)

Moving . . . Thoughtful and provocative, written with the author's customary intelligence and quiet passion (Kirkus)

[A] marvellously dexterous, tartly funny, and commanding novel of moral failings and women's quandaries, brilliantly infusing penetrating social critique with stinging irony as she considers what life makes of us and what we make of life (Booklist, starred review)

The tone is relaxed, even chatty, narrative mixed with reflection and observations on changes in manners and moral . . . What it offers, convincingly, interestingly, and often charmingly, is a picture of a changing world . . . Margaret Drabble has written a novel in which she has resisted the temptatio --Observer
