9781782114185: Academy Street
Présentation de l'éditeur :

She stood on the edge of the grass. She hovered between worlds, deciphering the ground, tracing in mid-air the hall, the dining-room, the stairs. She was despairingly close to home now, to the rooms and the voices that contained the first names for home. Memories abounded and her heart pounded and history broke in... Growing up in the west of Ireland in the 1940s, Tess is a shy introverted child. But beneath her quiet exterior lies a heart of fire. A fire that will later drive her to make her home among the hurly burly of 1960s New York. Over four decades and a life lived with quiet intensity on Academy Street in upper Manhattan, Tess encounters ferocious love and calamitous loss. But what endures is her bravery and fortitude, and her striking insights even as she is "floating close to hazard". Joyous and heart-breaking, restrained but sweeping, this is a profoundly moving story that charts one woman's quest for belonging amid the dazzle and tumult of America's greatest city. Academy Street establishes Mary Costello as one of Ireland's most exciting literary voices.

Revue de presse :

I read Academy Street cover to cover in one night, unable to stop. It is a short novel about a long life, stretching from rural Ireland to post-9/11 New York, and brings to mind the elegance of Colm Toibin and the insight of Alice Munro. Its stealthy, quiet power will exert a hold over any reader (Maggie O'Farrell)

Mary Costello's writing has the kind of urgency that the great problems demand - call them themes; they are the kind of problems that make a writer (Anne Enright Guardian)

Exquisite . . . so intricately wrought, so unique and enthralling as to be utterly bewitching (Lorraine Courtney Sunday Independent (on The China Factory))

These stories want all of you, mind and body and soul, like a consummation (Sonya Chung The Millions (on The China Factory)) --Maggie O'Farrell
