Inhaltsangabe zu „Elmet“ von Fiona Mozley

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017 Fresh and distinctive writing from an exciting new voice in fiction, Elmet is an unforgettable novel about family, as well as a beautiful meditation on landscape. Daniel is heading north. He is looking for someone. The simplicity of his early life with Daddy and Cathy has turned sour and fearful. They lived apart in the house that Daddy built for them with his bare hands. They foraged and hunted. When they were younger, Daniel and Cathy had gone to school. But they were not like the other children then, and they were even less like them now. Sometimes Daddy disappeared, and would return with a rage in his eyes. But when he was at home he was at peace. He told them that the little copse in Elmet was theirs alone. But that wasn't true. Local men, greedy and watchful, began to circle like vultures. All the while, the terrible violence in Daddy grew. Atmospheric and unsettling, Elmet is a lyrical commentary on contemporary society and one family's precarious place in it, as well as an exploration of how deep the bond between father and child can go.

Eine Reise bei der Michele sein eigenes "Ich" wiederfindet. Ein sehr schönes Hörbuch

Dann schlaf auch du

Spannend, schockierend und furchtbar traurig. Ein sprachgewaltiges Buch, dass sich so richtig keinem Genre zuordnen lässt. Lesenswert!

Drei Tage und ein Leben

Ein beinahe poetisch anmutendes Psychodrama

Und es schmilzt

Selten so ein langweiliges Buch gelesen. 22 Euro hätten besser angelegt werden können. Leider.

Tief bedrückendes Portrait einer Gesellschaft! Das Buch war nicht immer schön, aber immer lesenswert.

Als der Teufel aus dem Badezimmer kam

Improvisation pur... kein Tiefgang, kein gar nichts... Schade!
