Über diesen Titel


Jhabvala, winner of the Booker Prize as well as an Academy Award for screenwriting, has written a haunting tale of the complex and perilous relations between two young cousins, Angel and Lara.  A masterful novel which explores the dangers of love and committment.

From Library Journal:

Both a novelist and a screenwriter, Jhabvala won an Academy Award for her screen adaptation of A Room with a View. Perhaps her intention in writing this book was to use it as a future screenplay, for the main characters are too one-dimensional to appeal in a novel. The two American girls at the center of this work--the poet Angel and her cousin Lara, a dancer--are too eccentric to be credible. Although minutely drawn, they never seem to come to life. With minor characters such as a mother and son who are Indians, the author demonstrates her real strength; these characters are more sympathetic and real. A novel of disillusionment that will appeal primarily to Jhabvala's fans. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/92.
