9780091954376: A Song for Issy Bradley
Críticas:

" A Song For Issy Bradley is a wonderful novel, in which grace comes crabwise and miracles are never out of the question. Undeniably heartbreaking, it is also compassionate, funny and enriching." (Shelley Harris Independent on Sunday)

"Bray slips with thoroughness, imagination and dexterity into each of the characters' consciousness . . . [She] is wincingly honest and emotions are portrayed with an assurance that comes from understanding . . . A Song for Issy Bradley is a skilful and empathetic dramatisation. The fact that it deals with such distressing subject matter without falling prey to sentimentality makes it all the more admirable . . . There are some wonderful one-liners . . .Bray's greatest gift, however, is understatement." (Grace McCleen Guardian)

"Happy the debut novelist who can write well but who also has access to extraordinary subject matter. This is an impressive debut from a compassionate, wise and original new voice." (Suzi Feay Independent)

"A powerful, heart-breaking book." ( Daily Express)

"I cannot remember a time when a novel has seduced me so completely . . . Bray writes with such clarity, intelligence and authenticity that it feels as if a trusted old friend is telling you the story, that the characters are people you know . . . Bray displays warmth and real wit throughout despite the tragic content of this debut novel and the lean beauty of her writing makes it effortless to read" ( The Times)

"Bray explores the healing power of religion with rare assurance in one of the year's most impressive debuts." ( Mail on Sunday)

"Bray brings humour, empathy and knowledge to what is fundamentally a novel about grief and faith – and whether the latter can emerge from the former unshaken. The Bradley’s don’t. And nor, I guarantee, will you. Read this if you like: Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You" ( Harper's Bazaar)

"Bray performs a small miracle of her own by inhabiting each family member at every stage of the tragedy as their doubts and fears creep in . . . [and] manages it with an astonishing lightness of touch . . . A stunning, unmissable debut." (Christie Hickman Sunday Express)

"While this debut is heart-rendingly poignant with a bleak tragedy at its heart, it's also funny and vividly written." ( Sunday Mirror)

"unique . . . beautifully written . . . powerful" ( Daily Mail)

Críticas:

"A brilliant debut, compelling and profoundly moving." -- Nathan Filer, Costa winner of THE SHOCK OF THE FALL "Carys Bray is a strikingly original new voice in fiction. I loved this tender, moving, funny and deeply truthful story about a family and a faith tested to breaking-point." -- Helen Dunmore, author of THE LIE and Orange-shortlisted THE SIEGE "I loved A SONG FOR ISSY BRADLEY: such courage, warmth and intelligence. Carys Bray sweetly and subtly breaks your heart. It's an incredible debut." -- Charlotte Mendelson, author of Booker-longlisted ALMOST ENGLISH and Orange-shortlisted, WHEN WE WERE BAD "Such strong writing, with so much fine imagery.very moving. It sings. The characters are completely believable and their grief is conveyed with a truly admirable, unsentimental, lightness of touch, which brought laughter between the tears." -- Emma Henderson, author of Orange-shortlisted GRACE WILLIAMS SAYS IT LOUD

Descripción Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 214 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award. I cannot remember when a novel has seduced me so completely.it feels as if a trusted old friend is telling you the story, that the characters are people you know. (The Times). A terrific book .I loved a song for issy bradley. It s wry, smart, human, and rather miraculously, avoids mawkishness. And, ultimately, it s moving and comforting in a way that makes sense even to the agnostic . (Nick Hornby, The Believer). This is the story of what happens when Issy Bradley dies. It is the story of Ian - husband, father, maths teacher and Mormon bishop - and his unshakeable belief that everything will turn out all right if he can only endure to the end, like the pioneers did. It is the story of his wife Claire s lonely wait for a sign from God and her desperate need for life to pause while she comes to terms with what s happened. It is the story of the agony and hope of Zippy Bradley s first love. This is the story of Alma Bradley s cynicism and reluctant bravery. And it is the story of seven-year-old Jacob. His faith is bigger than a mustard seed, probably bigger than a toffee bonbon and he s planning to use it to mend his broken family with a miracle. Incredibly moving, unexpectedly funny and so sharply observed, it will make you feel as if you could pick the woodchip off the bedroom wall, A Song For Issy Bradley explores the outer reaches of doubt and faith. But mostly it s a story about a family trying to work out how to carry on when their world has fallen apart. Nº de ref. de la librería AB99780091954376
