Descripción

Fine copy in Fine Dustwrapper. Mint unread condition. SIGNED by the author on title page. ********* 'Hensher is an anatomist of familial tensions and marshals his large cast of characters deftly. He has an impeccable eye for nuances of character and setting, and the details of Seventies food and decor are lovingly done: the mushroom vol-au-vents, the white wall units with brown smoked glass!an engaging and hugely impressive novel.' The Times 'The Northern Clemency - vast, compendious, wearing its ambition like an outsize boutonniere - makes a virtue of its exactness, its recapitulative zeal, its absolute determination to jam everything in and sit unshiftably on the lid.' Independent on Sunday 'Hensher has a forensic eye for detail, providing nightmarish glimpses of the everyday!engrossing, amusing and moving.' Independent 'An epic novel.' Guardian 'Hensher is fascinating good on how social transformation manifests itself in the textures, colours and manners of a culture!extremely funny, but also deeply humane.' The Sunday Times. A remarkable novel!Hensher's technique of shifting continually from voice to voice, the third-person narrative perceived from the viewpoint of each character in turn, gives a cumulative effect of luminous richness, like a perfect piece of orchestration!but there is something more than brilliant cleverness that makes this novel extraordinary.' Sunday Times 'Hensher's is a bold, impressively sustained attempt to mark a transitional phase in modern Englishness as seen largely from the domestic sphere.' TLS 'A beautifully written book!as impressive in its scope as in the effortless artistry of the language. Its characters are well--defined and plausible, while the narrative is leavened with deftly observed humour that gently pokes its lower--middle class protagonists in the ribs.' Scotland on Sunday The Northern Clemency is an immense novel which sweeps through 20 epochal years, showing us that a country can move rapidly into the future but that some individuals often remain shackled to the events of the past. In The Northern Clemency, an early contender for novel of the year, Philip Hensher looks in detail at a small group of people over a generation, and in doing so presents the great drama and inexhaustible wonder of ordinary life. Spectator 'The Northern Clemency is a terrific novel - a truly fine achievement.' Cressida Connolly, New Statesman 'As with most families, it's the small private moment that fascinate.' The London Paper 'Essential for anyone who wants to be ahead of the game by literary awards season.' Elle 'A beautifully written book!as impressive in its scope as in the effortless artistry of the language. Its characters are well-defined and plausible, while the narrative is leavened with deftly observed humour that gently pokes its lower-middle class protagonists in the ribs.' Scotland on Sunday The "state-of-the-nation" novel has made a return in recent years. This is the most interesting and accomplished of them that I've come across, precisely because it doesn't do the usual state-of-the-nation things. Hensher immaculately provides texture and atmosphere.' The Tablet 'An epic novel that spans 1974-1996. It's a laudable undertaking and Hensher is very good at describing a suburban 1970s childhood and adolescence.' Metro, Fiction of the Week 'An ambitious portrait of life in the north over three turbulent decades.' Observer 'Picks for 2008' 'Expansive yet precise, it leads the reader from the minutiae of family life to broad public events with the surest of hands.' Guardian 'Picks for 2008' Praise for 'The Mulberry Empire': 'It's when he turns his pen to the more minute matters of the body and heart that Hensher changes from a merely clever writer into a moving one.' Ned Denny, Daily Mail 'Hensher is a publisher's dream. At last, he seems to have returned to the fictional territory of his earliest novel, trusting less to research than to his sharp wit, keen eye and love of London.'. N° de ref. de la librería P250
