Revue de presse :

Longlisted for the Warwick Prize for Writing 2015 "This is a gimmick-free novel of truthfulness, uncorrupted by a yearning for praise. At its heart is a touching and inspiriting sense of empathy, that rarest but most human of traits. Boundaries melt, other hearts become knowable. This is the work of the highest artistic seriousness. …Baume proves that the real can still be the province of literature, the only art form to which we can turn, heart in our hands, for an uplifting, consoling and dizzying reminder that language is the most sacred thing we’ve made."—Joseph O'Connor, for The Irish Times "Unbearably poignant and beautifully told."—Eimear McBride, author of A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing "The story is powerful, heartbreaking, told with great control. The writing is superb...I had an image of all of language standing to attention, eager to serve this writer."—Mary Costello, author of Academy Street "In a relentlessly inventive language that, it seems, can maneouvre anywhere and describe anything, Baume’s story of a man and his dog examines and elegizes the myriad strange, ramshackle, and ephemeral worlds locked deep inside the world. An exceptional, startling, and original book."—Colin Barrett, author of Young Skins "Touching and weird and sometimes comical and sometimes heartbreaking . . . Sad, Solid, Fragile, Witty ."—Kjersti Skomsvold, author of The Faster I Walk, the Smaller I Am

"An important and quite brilliant new Irish writing talent."—Irish Independent

"What makes Baume's book worth reading is the stark beauty of her prose. Her lyrical depictions of the Irish seascape are particularly evocative, and reminiscent of Tim Winton at his wild and wintry best...Baume's stunning debut shows that Irish fiction is well and truly back on the map. With Spill Simmer Falter Wither she has created a dark, tender portrait of what it's like to live life on the margins."— The Sydney Morning Herald "Ambitious and impressive."— Times Literary Supplement "A heart-breaking read from a major new talent."— Independent on Sunday "An ambitious stylist with an astonishing eye for detail and a clear passion for language. But it is the beautifully measured control of plot and the authenticity of the narrative voice that most impresses."— Irish Examiner "A remarkable voice that grabs the reader early."— Sunday Business Post

"A masterpiece of language, a demonstration of the heights that words are able to reach when guided by a master hand."-- tn2 Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur :

A debut novel already praised as "unbearably poignant and beautifully told" (Eimear McBride) this captivating story follows — over the course of four seasons — a misfit man who adopts a misfit dog. It is springtime, and two outcasts — a man ignored, even shunned by his village, and the one-eyed dog he takes into his quiet, tightly shuttered life — find each other, by accident or fate, and forge an unlikely connection. As their friendship grows, their small, seaside town suddenly takes note of them, falsely perceiving menace where there is only mishap; the unlikely duo must take to the road.    Gorgeously written in poetic and mesmerizing prose, S pill Simmer Falter Wither has already garnered wild support in its native Ireland, where the Irish Times pointed to Baume’s “astonishing power with language” and praised it as “a novel bursting with brio, braggadocio and bite.” It is also a moving depiction of how — over the four seasons echoed in the title — a relationship between fellow damaged creatures can bring them both comfort. One of those rare stories that utterly, completely imagines its way into a life most of us would never see, it transforms us not only in our understanding of the world, but also of ourselves.

Description du livre HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 2016. Hardback. État : New. 211 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A debut novel already praised as unbearably poignant and beautifully told (Eimear McBride) this captivating story follows -- over the course of four seasons -- a misfit man who adopts a misfit dog. It is springtime, and two outcasts -- a man ignored, even shunned by his village, and the one-eyed dog he takes into his quiet, tightly shuttered life -- find each other, by accident or fate, and forge an unlikely connection. As their friendship grows, their small, seaside town suddenly takes note of them, falsely perceiving menace where there is only mishap; the unlikely duo must take to the road. Gorgeously written in poetic and mesmerizing prose, Spill Simmer Falter Wither has already garnered wild support in its native Ireland, where the Irish Times pointed to Baume s astonishing power with language and praised it as a novel bursting with brio, braggadocio and bite. It is also a moving depiction of how -- over the four seasons echoed in the title -- a relationship between fellow damaged creatures can bring them both comfort.
