9780802135339: Moon Tiger

The elderly Claudia Hampton, a best-sellign author of popular history, lies alone in a London hospital bed. Memories of her life still glow in her fading consciousnes, but she imagines writing a history of the world. Instead, "Moon Tiger" is her own history, the life of a strong, independent woman, with its often contentious relations with family and friends. At its center -- forever frozen in time, the still point of her turning world -- is the cruelly truncated affair with Tom, a British tank commander who Claudia knew as a reporter in Egypt during World War II.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Penelope Lively's Booker Prize winning classic, Moon Tiger is a haunting story of loss and desire.Claudia Hampton - beautiful, famous, independent, dying.But she remains defiant to the last, telling her nurses that she will write a 'history of the world . . . and in the process, my own'. And it is her story from a childhood just after the First World War through the Second and beyond. But Claudia's life is entwined with others and she must allow those who knew her, loved her, the chance to speak, to put across their point of view. There is Gordon, brother and adversary; Jasper, her untrustworthy lover and father of Lisa, her cool conventional daughter; and then there is Tom, her one great love, found and lost in wartime Egypt.'Leaves its traces in the air long after you've put it away' Anne Tyler'A complex tapestry of great subtlety. Lively writes so well, savouring the words as she goes' Daily Telegraph'Very clever: evocative, thought-provoking and hangs on the mind long after it is finished' Literary ReviewPenelope Lively is the author of many prize-winning novels and short-story collections for both adults and children.
