Críticas:

* Jacob's Folly is an extraordinary book. Miller's writing is vigorous, powerful and riveting. I was constantly surprised by the flights and dips of narrative, and its complexity, while from start to finish her wit and the clear, true characters kept the book grounded. A magnificent achievement -- Sadie Jones, author of The Outcast * Jacob's Folly is a wonderful book - fresh, original, always surprising, with delightfully drawn characters. Rebecca Miller is an excellent novelist -- Kate Atkinson * A highly imaginative exercise that turns out to be comic, raucous and tender, sometimes all at once Sunday Telegraph * Miller's prose is rich. Eccentric, witty, highly original The Times * Original and imaginative, this beautifully written novel is a witty and moving read; magical realism darkly filtered through a European eye Mail on Sunday * Glittering... ambitious, thought-provoking and frequently hilarious Financial Times * An intriguing jewel of a novel about temptation and desire Observer * In Jacob's Folly, Rebecca Miller has landed on a narrative voice that's antique, droll, racy and occasionally cutting...a delicately balanced triple narrative that jumps across centuries... this is an imaginative leap in new direction, yolking historical fiction to a contemporary drama Los Angeles Times * Bravura storytelling elevates this tale - narrated by a fly on the wall - from the merely fanciful to the fantastic... Miller has sent her characters on a daring odyssey that traverses history, religion, philosophy and cultural identity New York Times Book Review * Jacob's Folly is an ingenious, meticulously observed, profoundly absorbing and deeply satisfying read USA Today * Narratively speaking it's a remarkable feat how the author/filmaker [Rebecca Miller] agilely threads together three distinct narratives... Jacob's Folly is a rare book from a rare breed of artist Kirkus Reviews * The novel breathes sensuality... Readers will chuckle contentedly and without malice at a violent, life-affirming death. A deeply pleasurable, darkly comic, and original reinterpretation of Jewish history's "indestructible storyline" Booklist * Jacob's Folly is lively and unpredictable, but its antic humour disguises what is at heart a chastening cautionary tale Wall Street Journal * Scads of narrative threads are sewn together with impressive and often lovely wordplay to form a vast historical fabric of Jacob's Jewish family... An unusual and absorbing read Publishers Weekly * As brilliant as it is bizarre. Miller explores themes of identity, religion, ambition, guilt, desire, all through the consciousness of a fly. And yes, she pulls it off Glamour * Like Rip Van Winkle rewritten by Franz Kafka... [Miller] writes... with humour and grace New Yorker Observer * Thanks to Rebecca Miller's densely detailed prose, [Jacob's] transformation seems quite believable, propelling Jacob's Folly on its own strange and often wonderful flight Boston Globe * A feat of extraordinary imagination, a sexy, unapologetically lyrical novel that looks at the danger and allure of assimilation and the power of transformation, while blowing dust off the centuries-old question of fate versus free will Vanity Fair * Rebecca Miller is a luminous writer Observer * Marvellous, deep and rich, sexy, transgressive, terrifying and tough, and very, very funny-a great ingathering as multifaceted as a gem, or the eye of a fly! -- Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Angels in America * Miller's writing style is sensuous, and her individual stories expand, opulently, in scope and emotional impact NPR * Fantastically original... Miller... is a writer whose graceful and original language make the challenge of Jacob's Folly a rewarding one. Her literary sensibility is vast and deep Moment Magazine * Rebecca Miller's graceful, ambitious novel spans time and geography and juggles several enmeshed narrative threads nimbly. She creates memorable characters with dark wit, lyrical prose and a propulsive storytelling rhythm... Dickensian and audacious, this imaginative novel has a cinematic quality... USA Today * Miller's novel raises important questions about what family means, and what society means, especially when one is at odds with the other Scotsman * Jacob's Folly is a virtuoso performance... an assured, magnificent novel that deploys the difficult it-narrative (from the perspective of an animal or object) with aplomb West Australian * Miller's creation is both brilliant and bizarre. Exploring themes of religion, identity, and the poser of hopes and dreams, she has created a genuinely original read Glamour * Raunchy, rollicking and inventive, Miller explores love and reincarnation in the daft but delightful tale Easy Living * A meditation on faith, goodness and freedom, Jacob's Folly is a cleverly executed and compelling novel. Darkly funny and rich with colour, this is one to savour We Love This Book * Miller is extremely sharp on the complexities of Jewish identity The Sunday Times * An intriguing book, with enough fizz and colour to make for a satisfying read Jewish Chronicle * From the outset the narrative is laden with thought-provoking themes... But there are moments of wry humour too Herald * An ingenious and ambitious flight of fancy Metro

Reseña del editor:

This is from the author of the Sunday Times bestseller and Richard and Judy Summer Read The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. Masha Edelman yearns for a life on the stage and to escape her strict religious family. Miles away, in a safe suburban neighbourhood, family man Leslie Senzatimore longs to be a hero. They have little idea of what lies ahead for them. Through a cosmic sleight of hand enters Jacob, a man who has travelled a long way through time, and is determined to make his mark on the lives of these two strangers. What follows is a rollicking, sparkling story of kinship, freedom and belonging.
