Popis titulu: Rijneveld, Marieke Lucas - The Discomfort of Evening

*WINNER OF THE BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2020* The sensational Dutch bestseller: 'Exceptional' (Financial Times) 'Exhilarating' (Independent) 'Luminous' (Observer) 'Beautifully wild' (Guardian) 'An earthy and irreverent new voice, thrillingly uninhibited' (New York Times) I asked God if he please couldn't take my brother Matthies instead of my rabbit. 'Amen.' Ten-year-old Jas has a unique way of experiencing her universe: the feeling of udder ointment on her skin as protection against harsh winters; the texture of green warts, like capers, on migrating toads; the sound of 'blush words' that aren't in the Bible. But when a tragic accident ruptures the family, her curiosity warps into a vortex of increasingly disturbing fantasies - unlocking a darkness that threatens to derail them all. A bestselling sensation in the Netherlands, Marieke Lucas Rijneveld's radical debut novel is studded with images of wild, violent beauty: a world of language unlike any other, exquisitely captured in Michele Hutchison's translation. 'THE MOST TALKED ABOUT DEBUT NOVEL OF 2020 ALREADY' [Dazed & Confused] ONE OF VOGUE'S TOP FIVE DEBUTS OF 2020 ONE OF THE OBSERVER'S HIGHLIGHTS OF 2020 ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S TOP TEN BEST NEW BOOKS IN TRANSLATION Review One of the best debut novels I have ever read. Shockingly good. Utterly unforgettable ... A classic. -- Max Porter Few reading experiences are more thrilling than a first novel that feels urgent and original. In the past decade, Teju Cole and Garth Greenwell both had these qualities ... As exhilarating a debut as I can remember. ? i Intensely raw, shockingly graphic, and memorable ... Rijneveld has created something exceptional. ? Financial Times Translator Michele Hutchison deftly switches between registers and gives Jas a strong, unique voice ... Poetic, mannered language, realistic bleakness and descent into surreal darkness ... Compelling ... Fascinating characters and themes. ? Guardian (Book of the Day) Translated by Michele Hutchison, Rijneveld's writing is raw and impassive, though often grotesquely vivid ... A pretty remarkable debut. Confident in its brutality, yet contained rather than gratuitous, it introduces readers to both a memorably off-key narrator and a notable new talent. ? Observer An earthy and irreverent new voice, thrillingly uninhibited in style and subject matter ... The novel teems - I say this admiringly - with all the filth of life ... Even now, my blood jumps to remember certain images ... I went to it every day [with] gratitude ... The spaciousness of Rijneveld's imagination comes as terror and solace. ? New York Times The most talked-about debut novel of 2020 ... Absolutely compelling ... Brutal and vivid. ? Dazed & Confused An unsettling exploration of a family dealing with a sudden death . . . A strong debut. Rijneveld's poetic prose, eloquently translated by Michele Hutchison, clashes and rattles against the horrors it describes, a constant fight between terror and beauty. It is a novel that does its best to make sure you won't forget it anytime soon. ? Irish Times Rijneveld takes us into the bleak Dutch countryside, into a family's grief, and inside the mind of a girl who is in hiding from her own life. This beautiful, strange novel is filled with sentences that stopped me dead. -- Chris Power Astoundingly accomplished ... Shudderingly vivid ... A stunning novel that does what a child's-eye narrative should do: reveal that, in the face of adult folly, a ten-year-old can show us the world as it really is. ?
