9780099739913: The Giant's House (Roman)
Críticas:

"The most original and enchanting romance I have read in a long time" (Erica Wagner The Times)

"McCracken avoids the temptations of easy humour and writes with great pathos and delicacy about the complexities of love" ( Observer)

"The lucid, compelling prose convinces us that this mismatched pair do become a real couple: improbably, disturbingly, and very movingly, theirs is a true love story" ( Sunday Times)

" The Giant's House is the work of a writer who is as singular and astute as the characters she creates... funny, ambitious and precise... a beautifully composed portrait of people struggling against themselves with the full force of their courage and desire" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Every so often a novel comes along which transcends whimsy with the beauty of its writing. Elizabeth McCracken's small masterpiece is one of these" ( G2)

Reseña del editor:

The year is 1950, and in a small town on Cape Cod 28 year-old librarian Peggy Cort feels as if love and life have stood her up. Until the day James Carlson Sweatt - the 'over-tall' 11 year-old boy who's the talk of the town - walks into her library and changes her life forever. Two misfits whose lonely paths cross at the circulation desk, Peggy and James are odd candidates for friendship. In James, Peggy discovers the one person who's ever really understood her, and as he grows - six foot five at age twelve, then seven foot, then eight - so does her heart and their most singular romance. THE GIANT'S HOUSE is a strange, beautifully written and unforgettably tender novel about learning to welcome the unexpected miracle.
