Where My Heart Used to Beat

 
9780099549246: Where My Heart Used to Beat
Quatrième de couverture :

‘This is a terrific novel, humming with ideas, knowing asides, shafts of sunlight, shouts of laughter and moments of almost unbearable tragedy’ Sunday Telegraph

On a small island off the south coast of France, Robert Hendricks, an English doctor who has seen the best and worst the twentieth century has to offer, is forced to confront the events that made up his life.

‘an ambitious exploration of memory and happiness…Hendricks is a strangely compelling and likeable character’ The Times

His story takes us through the war in Italy in 1944, a passionate love affair that seems to hold out hope, the great days of idealistic work in the 1960s and finally back into the trenches of the Western Front.

‘that rare book, a page-turning read that also has a significant intellectual and emotional charge’ Sunday Express

But his host and antagonist, Alexander Periera, is determined that Robert will learn what separates his memories from the truth.

‘Faulks returns to his favourite theme: the loss inherent in the gap between the life we have lived – and the one we might have had. It’s that difference that tugs at the heartstrings. Faulks just gets better and better with every book.’ Daily Mail

Sebastian Faulks is the author of ten novels, including Birdsong, Human Traces, Engleby, On Green Dolphin Street and A Week in December.

Revue de presse :

"A masterpiece…a terrific novel, humming with ideas, knowing asides, shafts of sunlight, shouts of laughter and moments of almost unbearable tragedy" (Toby Clements Sunday Telegraph)

"Combining as it does the cultural narrative of a complex century forsaken by God and certainty, a serious investigation into the vulnerability of the human mind and an old-fashioned – in the best sense – story of love and war, this is an ambitious, demanding and profoundly melancholy book" ( Guardian)

"A pleasure from start to finish…WHERE MY HEART USED TO BEAT is that rare book, a page-turning read that also has a significant intellectual and emotional charge." (Alexander Larman Sunday Express)

"Compelling...profoundly moving" (Leyla Sanai The Independent on Sunday)

"Faulks writes in the grand tradition of realist fiction…Fans of Faulks ? and they are legion ? will find a great deal to admire and ponder and sorrow at within these pages. Its aspirations are sincere and noble" ( Spectator)

Description du livre Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. État : New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A haunting tale of war, love and loss from the author of Birdsong and A Week in December. The Sunday Times bestseller. On a small island off the south coast of France, Robert Hendricks - an English doctor who has seen the best and the worst the twentieth century had to offer - is forced to confront the events that made up his life. His host is Alexander Pereira, a man who seems to know more about his guest than Hendricks himself does. The search for the past takes us through the war in Italy in 1944, a passionate love that seems to hold out hope, the great days of idealistic work in the 1960s and finally - unforgettably - back into the trenches of the Western Front. This moving novel casts a long, baleful light over the century we have left behind but may never fully understand. Daring, ambitious and in the end profoundly moving, this is Faulks most remarkable book yet. N° de réf. du libraire EAS9780099549246
