Revue de presse :

'A superbly atmospheric prologue kick-starts a thrilling story about truth and betrayal... [a] brilliant, fast-moving novel' --The Times

'Assured, vivid and persuasive' --Time Out

'This is a wonderful, vibrant, tense novel about war and its aftermath.' --Susan Hill - Man Booker Prize judge

'Edugyan really can write' --Guardian

'Edugyan has a perfect ear for conversations and the confusions of human love and jealousy. A remarkable novel.' --Morning Star

'Truly extraordinary in its evocation of time and place, its shimmering jazz vernacular, and its period slang.' --Independent

'Punchy and atmospheric' --Sunday Times

'Gripping' -- Irish Times

'Nimble storytelling ... Casablanca-style melodrama with healthy doses of quotidian banter, admirably capturing the bickering camaraderie of the young musicians.' -- --International Herald Tribune

"'Simply stunning, one of the freshest pieces of fiction I've read. A story I'd never heard before, told in a way I'd never seen before. I felt the whole time I was reading it like I was being let in on something, the story of a legend deconstructed. It's a world of characters so realized that I found myself at one point looking up Hieronymous Falk on Wikipedia, disbelieving he was the product of one woman's imagination' (Attica Locke)"

'Lyrical and genuinely exciting it s a captivating book that races along with verve and panache' --Daily Express

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Chip told us not to go out. Said, don't you boys tempt the devil. But it been one brawl of a night, I tell you. The aftermath of the fall of Paris, 1940. Hieronymous Falk, a rising star on the cabaret scene, was arrested in a cafe and never heard from again. He was twenty years old. He was a German citizen. And he was black. Fifty years later, Sid, Hiero's bandmate and the only witness that day, is going back to Berlin. Persuaded by his old friend Chip, Sid discovers there's more to the journey than he thought when Chip shares a mysterious letter, bringing to the surface secrets buried since Hiero's fate was settled. In Half Blood Blues, Esi Edugyan weaves the horror of betrayal, the burden of loyalty and the possibility that, if you don't tell your story, someone else might tell it for you. And they just might tell it wrong ...
