9780007548323: We Are Not Ourselves
Críticas:

‘Like John Updike in the Rabbit series Thomas concentrates on the lives of ordinary Americans … Thomas's treatment of Ed Leary's Alzheimer's is extraordinary … The novel's account of this illness and its terrible progress through a life is unsparing, but never cold or removed. Thomas creates an intimacy with Ed's struggle against his own mental dissolution that is intensely moving … Thomas has quarried deep to discover emotional truth and a form and language in which to express it. ‘We Are Not Ourselves’ took 10 years to write, and justifies every one of them.’ Helen Dunmore, Guardian

‘An honest, intimate family story with the power to rock you to your core … Wrenchingly credible … Wonderfully wrought … A rich, sprawling book … One of the frankest novels ever written about love between a caregiver and a person with a degenerative disease … Thomas spares nothing and still makes it clear how deeply in love these soul mates are … [It] will reduce anyone who ever had a parent to helpless tears.’ New York Times

‘Unflinching and heartbreaking … The pain leaps from the page but so too does the love, the love that binds a family through one of the most heartbreaking of afflictions … epic in scale, subject and compassion … If Matthew Thomas writes nothing else, ‘We Are Not Ourselves’ will stand as a magnificent achievement.’ 5* review, Sunday Express

‘The greatest Alzheimer’s novel yet … Visionary and challenging … ‘We Are Not Ourselves’ exceeds the usual boundaries of fiction on the subject … At once expansive and tangibly detailed … Resonant, finely observed … The truest and most harrowing account of a descent into dementia that I have ever read … Marvellous.’ New Yorker

‘A powerfully moving book.’ Chad Harbach

‘It's all here: how we live, how we love, how we die, how we carry on. And Thomas does it with the epic sweep and small pleasures of the very best fiction. It's humbling and heartening to read a book this good.’ Joshua Ferris
