9780802123213: The Forgers
Críticas:

An Indie Next Pick and LibraryReads Selection for November, a "Publishers Weekly" Most Anticipated Fall Book, and a "Library Journal" Editors' Pick for Fall ""The Forgers" is quintessential Bradford Morrow. Brilliantly written as a suspense novel, lethally enthralling to read, and filled with arcane, fascinating information--in this case, the rarified world of high-level literary forgery."--Joyce Carol Oates "Bradford Morrow's "The Forgers" is a bibliophile's dream, an existential thriller set in the world of rare book collecting that is also a powerfully moving expose of the forger's dangerous skill: what happens when you lie so well that you lose touch with what is real? In beautifully controlled prose, Morrow traces the shaky line between paranoia and gut-intuition, memory and self-delusive fiction, hollow and real love. It's perfect all-night flashlight reading--Bradford Morrow at his lyrical, surprising, suspenseful, genre-bending best."--Karen Russell, author of "Vampires in the Lemon Grove" and "Swamplandia!" ""The Forgers" is remarkable. Bradford Morrow is remarkable. The Real Thing, which is rare on this earthly plane."--Michael Cunningham, author of "The Hours" and "The Snow Queen" "Bradford Morrow illuminates the seamy side of the rare-book trade in The Forgers."--"Vanity Fair" "In "The Forgers," Bradford Morrow hits the sweet spot at the juncture of genre crime fiction and the mainstream novel with an almost mystical perfection. Readers of either form will be gratified and impressed, and those who are readers of both will be thrilled. In its deep knowledge of books and those who trade in them, and in its thousand vivid, unexpected turns of phrase--its depth of both subject and language--"The Forgers" could have been written only by Morrow and at only the rare and striking level of mastery he has now achieved."--Peter Straub, author of "A Dark Matter" and "Ghost Story" "With "The Forgers," Bradford Morrow has masterfully combined an exquisitely thickening plot, an informed appreciation of the antiquarian book world, and a deep understanding of what makes the obsessive people who inhabit this quirky community do the sort of impassioned things they sometimes do, up to and including the commission of horrific crimes. Morrow has hit the ball out of the park--"The Forgers" is a grand slam, in the bottom of the ninth, to boot. This is a bibliomystery you will want to inhale in one sitting."--Nicholas Basbanes, author of "A Gentle Madness" and "On Paper" "[An] artfully limned suspense novel. . . . The insights Morrow offers into the lure of collecting, the rush of forgery as a potentially creative act, and underlying questions of authenticity render the whodunit one of the lesser mysteries of this sly puzzler."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "As Morrow pulls back the curtain to reveal the murky world of book sellers and buyers and ushers readers into the mind of a forger for whom falsifying the perfect signature is a thrill, he also draws us deeper into the puzzle . . . Morrow writes with a sure, clear voice, and his prose is lush and detailed. . . . Recommended for readers who enjoy atmospheric literary thrillers such as Caleb Carr's "The Alienist.""--"Library Journal" "Will, the narrator of Morrow's seventh novel, is a fine creation. . . . A pleasurable study of the lives of book dealers. . . . Morrow's well-researched passages on the collector's art meshes well with Will's romantic longueurs about the life of fakery he left behind."--"Kirkus Reviews" "So well written, "The Forgers" will take some time to finish as readers might want to reread every sentence."--Jean-Paul Adriaansen, Water Street Books, Indie Next selection

Descripción U.S.A.: Mysterious Press, 2014. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. 2014. Hardcover. First ed. First Printing. SIGNED--SIGNATURE ONLY ON TITLE PAGE. A fascinating look at a forger who has the rare gift not just to copy the signature of Conan Doyle, Yeats, Henry James and others, but to get into their psyche and produce material they very well might have written, such as why Doyle withheld "The Cardboard Box" from the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes and why he was so upset at its inclusion in the American edition before it was repressed--all true occurrences. The hero's winding path thru his love of literature and his compulsion to forge it and how it leads him into a labyrinth of lies, ego, and twisted love, while threatening the true and pure love he has for his wife and daughter. A wonderfully intriguing and complex novel which leads to guilt, murder, and true love. A True Bibliomystery and one of the best. Mint in Mint DJ. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON TITLE PAGE (Signature Only)--(NOT A FORGED SIGNATURE.). Signed by Author(s). Nº de ref. de la librería ABE-14748813171
