9780434023103: The Shore (William Heinemann)
Críticas:

"[A] remarkable first novel, an intricately plotted series of episodes in the life of two families ... A challenging family history of violence, murder, rape, castration and magic ... Taylor is a terrific storyteller with a flawless narrative voice and, as a portrait of the impoverished rural south, this novel is a real achievement ... There are ambitious experiments ...The Shore is a mesmerising, powerful read." The Times "An exuberant talent announces her arrival in this Baileys-nominated collection of interlinked stories touching on murder, misogyny and morality ... To find the connections between stories, you have to follow names, places and even objects through 200 years of timeline ... It's a strange but pleasurable way to read, an experience at once postmodern and childish ...The green, lush landscape, the oyster beds, insects and crabs, are evoked through so many eyes and felt by so many hands that we start to believe in their enduring existence, giving backbone and depth to the green politics of the book ...Taylor, it seems, can do dark realism as well as she can the magic kind - in fact, she seems able to do most things. This debut is a testament to an exuberant talent and an original, fearless sensibility. It's also enormous fun to read." Guardian "I loved this book ... Epic in breadth but glittering in its detail, The Shore is utterly absorbing." -- Catherine O'Flynn "A vivid exploration of the struggle for autonomy and the many meanings of what we call home." -- Eimear McBride, author of A Girl is a Half-formed Thing "In her debut, Taylor has already mastered the most dastardly of high-wire acts; an epic tale that's neither overbearing nor overblown ... The sprawling tale is marked by domestic violence, murder, rape, castration, drugs and magic; the isolated islands a shelter for some and a prison for others. But there are brilliant moments of intimate, quotidian despair, too." Irish Independent

It is longlisted For The Guardian First Book Award 2015. It is Longlisted For The Baileys Women s Prize For Fiction 2015. The Shore. A collection of small islands sticking out from the coast of Virginia into the Atlantic Ocean that has been home to generations of fierce and resilient women. Sanctuary to some but nightmare to others, it s a place they ve inhabited, fled, and returned to for hundreds of years. From a brave girl s determination to protect her younger sister as methamphetamine ravages their family, to a lesson in summoning storm clouds to help end a drought, these women struggle against domestic violence, savage wilderness, and the corrosive effects of poverty and addiction to secure a sense of well-being for themselves and for those they love. Their interconnecting stories form a deeply affecting legacy of two island families, illuminating the small miracles and miseries of a community of outsiders, and the bonds of blood and fate that connect them all. Dreamlike and yet impossibly real, profound and playful, The Shore is a richly unique, breathtakingly ambitious and accomplished debut novel by a young writer of astonishing gifts.
