Diesen Monat gibt es gleich zwei Leserunden bei uns. Neben unserer Jahreschallenge würden wir gerne auch mit euch das neue Buch von Julian Barnes lesen und besprechen.
Passend zu seinem 70. Geburtstag erscheint bei uns sein nächstes Buch THE NOISE OF TIME.
Wir verlosen 15 Bücher im englischen Original.
In May 1937 a man in his early thirties waits by the lift of a Leningrad apartment block. He waits all through the night, expecting to be taken away to the Big House. Any celebrity he has known in the previous decade is no use to him now. And few who are taken to the Big House ever return.
So begins Julian Barnes’s first novel since his Booker-winning The Sense of an Ending. A story about the collision of Art and Power, about human compromise, human cowardice and human courage, it is the work of a true master.
Julian Barnes is the author of twelve novels, including The Sense of an Ending, which won the 2011 Man Booker Prize for Fiction. He has also written three books of short stories, Cross Channel, The Lemon Table and Pulse; four collections of essays; and two books of non-fiction, Nothing to be Frightened Of and the Sunday Times Number One bestseller Levels of Life. He lives in London.
Undoubtedly one of Barnes’s best novels, and a great way to start the literary year. - Sunday Times
[Barnes is] a master of the narrative sidestep… Not just a novel about music, but something more like a musical novel… The story itself is structured in three parts that come together like a broken chord. It is a simple but brilliant device, and one that goes right to the heart of this novel. - The Times
A series of elegant insights into the mind of a brilliant artist… Throughout, Barnes offers a surety of touch that few writers can match. - Independent on Sunday
Wie immer wird der Lostopf entscheiden. Ich freue mich auf eure Bewerbungen!
Viel Erfolg und liebe Grüße aus dem schneelosen London,
