Book by McCann Colum

Críticas:

"There is no denying the discipline that has gone into "Everything in This Country Must ."--"Charles Taylor, "The New York Times Book Review"
"Captures that peculiar nexus of hormones, deprivation and political imperative on a Northern Irish child coming of age." -Susan Salter Reynolds, "Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"[A] stunning new book...Told in McCann's lush prose, these stories are both mesmerizing and painful." " -""Minneapolis Star-Tribune"
"McCann has the knack of capturing the intensity of these strongly held views in a low-key prose that underscores their vitriol, and in a way that disturbs the reader's sensibilities." -"Richmond Times-Dispatch"
"Excellent - this is a powerful and moving collection." -Roddy Doyle
"Masterful. These emotionally charged, beautifully controlled tales can only enhance McCann's already considerable reputation." --"Kirkus Reviews" (starred)
"These are powerful stories - gritty, memorable and ambitious. The novella goes straight to the heart, both in terms of its theme and its emotional punch." -Edna O'Brien, author of" Wild Decembers"
"Beautfully, poetically written...the need to read them over and over again can't be denied." -"Booklist"

"Colum McCann's stories are brooding, meditative and lyrically controlled to that delicate point where the emotion within them intensifies with each succeeding reading and recognition. The political turmoil of Northern Ireland finds here an answering, subtly respondent voice -- wonderfully skilled and deeply felt." -Seamus Deane, author of "Reading in the Dark"
"Further evidence of McCann's remarkable gifts as a prose artist as well as storyteller...In each of these pieces, the miracle is how McCann, with prose so terse and spare, is able to create worlds so emotionally complex and moving." -"Library Journal"""
