Acerca de


Book by Faccini Ben


‘A remarkable portrait of a family under pressure, rather like a photograph album: crammed with rich and vivid detail. The Water-breather teems with delightful incident and a number of enjoyable minor characters... An assured and moving debut.’ Gerard Woodward, Guardian

‘Faccini’s clean style and lack of mawkishness make for a convincing portrayal of the workings of a child’s mind and a truthful and affecting read.’ John Harding, Daily Mail

'Like Esther Freud, he has the rare gift of creating a world we can all relate to from a child's perspective; he depicts minutely observed detail in a larger landscape, both emotional and physical, and in doing so has written a book with an exotic atmosphere which lingers long after one has read the final page.' Rafaella Barker

‘A strange expedition into the border zone between love and anguish, a brilliant and poetic intermingling of memories and dreams.’
Lisa St Aubin de Teran

‘Totally original and mesmerising...Faccini is a brilliant writer and not a sentence in this wonderful book sems out of place.’
Scarlett Thomas, Literary Review

‘To write through the eyes of an eight-year-old boy is one thing. To capture the thoughts and fears of a chid this age is quite another. This accomplished debut from Ben Faccini expresses them beautifully.’
James Simpson, Oxford Times

‘Dark but surprisingly gentle, often unexpectedly comic...with skilled metaphorical layering and acute momentary precision.’
Ali Smith, TLS

‘In this startingly assured debut, Ben Faccini captures the confusion of loss from a child’s perspective and creates a story that is both
life-affirming and funny.’
The Irish News
