A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Book by Anthony Quinn

Quatrième de couverture:

'A love letter to Liverpool...ambitiously conceived...He has perfect pitch when it comes to the prose of each period, so much so that when I started the novel, I had the uncanny sense that what I was reading must have been salvaged from the 1940s. Equally remarkable is the Victorian prose of Eames's journal. Its every line convinces' Observer

'An excellent debut...a moving and powerfully told story of late coming-of-age and redemptive love' Literary Review

'The story has the resonant simplicity of a poem... The Rescue Man turns the ongoing frenzy of construction and destruction [of Liverpool] into a quietly powerful metaphor of how we grow up' Guardian

'Thematically rich and masterfully constructed' TLS

'Brilliant...an involving meditation on passion, history and architecture' Daily Mail

'Quinn has a cinematic eye for narrative scope... Like all good debut novels this book tells us something new' Spectator

Liverpool, 1939. Lonely historian Tom Baines is at work on a study of the city's architectural past but ominous news from Europe, together with his burgeoning friendship with Richard, a young photographer and his beautiful wife, Bella, are proving a distraction. When the bombings begin Tom joins up as a 'rescue man', saving the dead and dying from the ruins of buildings, but the love affair he embarks on soon leads him into a very different kind of danger.
