9780099584537: Levels of Life

"It is extraordinary... [It] would seem to pull off the impossible: to recreate, on the page, what it is like to be alive in the world." (Emma Brockes Guardian)

"This is a book of rare intimacy and honesty about love and grief. To read it is a privilege. To have written it is astonishing." (Ruth Scurr The Times)

"It’s an unrestrained, affecting piece of writing, raw and honest and more truthful for its dignity and artistry... Anyone who has loved and suffered loss, or just suffered, should read this book, and re-read it, and re-read it." (Martin Fletcher Independent)

" Levels of Life is both a supremely crafted artefact and a desolating guidebook to the land of loss." (John Carey Sunday Times)

"While one might expect a Barnes book to impress, delight, move, disconcert or amuse, the last thing for which his work prepares us is the blast of paralysingly direct emotion that concludes Levels of Life." (Tim Martin Daily Telegraph)

" Levels of Life is, deep-down, a heartfelt attempt to chronicle the strange journey that follows the death of a loved one." (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

"A Taj Mahal made of paper not white marble." (Peter Conrad Observer)

"A magnificent blast of unflinching prose." ( Daily Telegraph)

"Powerful and well-articulated." (Roger Lewis Daily Mail)

"It is true that the private language of love doesn’t generally translate; yet how vividly Barnes invokes the power and delicacy of what is lost to him." (Jane Shilling Sunday Telegraph)

"Profoundly emotive." ( Sunday Times)

"He writes with aphoristic simplicity and a calm profundity, without ever sounding self-pitying, maudlin or trite… Levels of Life is at times unbearably sad, but it is also exquisite: a paean of love, and on love, and a book unexpectedly full of life." (Rosemary Goring Herald)

"A grief-stricken, achingly precise and bravely unconsoling exploration into the inadequacy of words." ( Metro)

"An impassioned, raw insight into a survivor’s grief." ( Sport)

"A confession of grief so emotively described that it leaves the reader cold with awe." (Billy O'Callaghan Irish Examiner)

Reseña del editor:

You put together two things that have not been put together before. And the world is changed.

In Levels of Life Julian Barnes gives us Nadar, the pioneer balloonist and aerial photographer; he gives us Colonel Fred Burnaby, reluctant adorer of the extravagant Sarah Bernhardt; then, finally, he gives us the story of his own grief, unflinchingly observed.

This is a book of intense honesty and insight; it is at once a celebration of love and a profound examination of sorrow.

Buchbeschreibung Vintage Random House UK Dez 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 198x131x8 mm. Neuware - Julian Barnes' neues Buch handelt von Ballonfahrt, Fotografie, Liebe und Trauer. Davon, dass man zwei Menschen oder zwei Dinge verbindet und sie wieder auseinanderreißt. Einer der Juroren für den Man Booker Preis nannte Julian Barnes einen 'beispiellosen Zauberer des Herzens'. Das vorliegende Buch bestätigt dies. Julian Barnes schreibt über die menschliche Existenz - auf der Erde und in der Luft. Wir lernen Nadar kennen, Pionier der Ballonfahrt und einer der ersten Fotografen, die Luftaufnahmen machten, sowie Colonel Fred Burnaby, der zum eigenwilligen Bewunderer der extravaganten Schauspielerin Sarah Bernhardt wird. Und wir lesen über Julian Barnes' eigene Trauer über den Tod seiner Frau - schonungslos offen, präzise und tief berührend. 128 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780099584537
