Revue de presse :

Every scene is rich in implication, entrancing and disturbing at the same time; the literary equivalent of a switch-back ride (The Sunday Times)

What makes Levy's writing so appealing is her even-handedness. All her characters can be weak, hopeless, brave, good, bad - whatever their colour. The writing is rigorous and the bittersweet ending, with its unexpected twist, touching... People can retain great dignity, however small their island (Independent on Sunday)

'A cracking good read' (Margaret Forster)

'A great read...honest, skilful, thoughtful and important' (Guardian)

'Explores the Caribbean experience of immigration to Britain with great sensitivity' (Independent)

'Wonderful...seamless...a magnificent achievement' (Linda Grant)

'Never less than finely written, delicately and often comically observed, and impressively rich in detail and little nuggets of stories' (Evening Standard)

'An engrossing read - slyly funny, passionately angry and wholly involving' (Daily Mail)

'A work of great imaginative power' (Linton Kwesi Johnson)

'As full of warmth and jokes and humanity as you could wish' (Time Out)

'Gives us a new urgent take on our past' (Vogue)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

It is 1948 in an England still shaken by war. At 21 Nevern Street, London, Queenie Bligh takes into her house lodgers who have recently arrived from Jamaica. What else could she do when her husband, Bernard, never returned from his RAF wartime posting to India? Among her tenants are Gilbert and his new wife Hortense. Gilbert Joseph was one of the several thousand Jamaican men who joined the RAF to fight against Hitler. Returning to England after the war he finds himself treated very differently now that he is no longer in a blue uniform. Desperation makes him remember a wartime friendship with Queenie and knock at her door. Hortense shared Gilbert's dream of leaving Jamaica and coming to England to start a better life. But when she at last joins her husband, she is shocked by London's shabbiness and horrified at the way the English live. Even Gilbert is not the man she thought he was.

Queenie's neighbours do not approve of her choice of tenants, and neither would her husband, were he there. Through the stories of these people, SMALL ISLAND explores a point in England's past when the country began to change.

Description du livre Picador USA, United States, 2010. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. 208 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Small Island is an international bestseller. It won the Orange Prize for Fiction, The Orange Prize for Fiction: Best of the Best, The Whitbread Novel Award, The Whitbread Book of the Year Award, and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. It has now been adapted for the screen as a coproduction of the BBC and Masterpiece/WGBH Boston. Hortense Joseph arrives in London from Jamaica in 1948 with her life in her suitcase, her heart broken, her resolve intact. Her husband, Gilbert Joseph, returns from the war expecting to be received as a hero, but finds his status as a black man in Britain to be second class. His white landlady, Queenie, raised as a farmer s daughter, befriends Gilbert, and later Hortense, with innocence and courage, until the unexpected arrival of her husband, Bernard, who returns from combat with issues of his own to resolve. Told in these four voices, Small Island is a courageous novel of tender emotion and sparkling wit, of crossings taken and passages lost, of shattering compassion and of reckless optimism in the face of insurmountable barriers---in short, an encapsulation of that most American of experiences: the immigrant s life.
