9780241184240: Memoirs of a Dipper
Críticas:

Embodies an authenticity more common in non-fiction... short but powerful. ( Sunday Telegraph)

Gary's first-person narration grabs us by the collar and drags us through his tale of a life, from childhood to middle-age, on the underbelly of society. Leyshon brilliantly renders his voice, which is forcible, baldly honest, intimate and often blackly funny . . . This is a book full of important questions, and I applaud Leyshon for asking them. ( Guardian)

Gary is an unusually candid and beguiling narrator ( The Independent)

Vivid . . . brilliant . . . [Gary] is a captivating narrator . . . Leyshon has not painted a pretty picture, but it's hard to look away. ( Financial Times)

Memoirs of a Dipper is largely based on Leyshon's conversations with real-life former prisoners and addicts... the dialogue is strong and Gary's voice taut throughout. ( The Sunday Times)

A reading experience that hums with an electric energy that never gets boring and feels shockingly, painfully real. ( The Times)

Leyshon is a master of domestic suspense . . . Slender but compelling, the charm of Leyshon's novella is to be found as much in its spare, evocative style as in the moving candour of its narrator ( Observer on The Colour of Milk)

Leyshon's spare, dialogue-centred storytelling is lean and vivid... a small potted tragedy, as highly concentrated as a stock cube ( The Times on The Colour of Milk)

Spare and beautifully crafted, compelling. Like a love letter to the power of words. ( Marie Claire on The Colour of Milk)

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin UK | Gary is a dipper, a burglar, a thief. He is still at junior school when his father first takes him out on the rob, and proves a fast learner: not much more than a child the first time he gets caught, he is a career criminal as soon as he is out again. But Gary is also fiercely intelligent - he often knows more about the antique furniture he is stealing than the people who own it, and is confident in his ability to trick his way out of any situation, always one step ahead. But all that changes when he falls for Mandy. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 450 gr | 223x144x30 mm | 320 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería K9780241184240
