Textul de pe ultima copertă

“The bad blood had missed a generation. You’re just like your grandfather, my mother said.”
Blood trickles down through every generation, seeps into every marriage. An international bestseller and winner of the Whitbread Biography Award, Bad Blood is a tragicomic memoir of one woman’s escape from a claustrophobic childhood in post–World War II Britain and the story of three generations of a family—its triumphs and its darkest secrets.
With wit and a dose of self-deprecating humor, Sage’s prose brings to life in vivid detail a period—the 1940s and 1950s—that continues to influence and shape society in the twenty-first century. As a portrait of a family and a young girl’s place in it, Bad Blood is unsurpassed.


“In Bad Blood, [Sage] has written a classic.”
“Magnificent. . . . A superb memoir of a daughter of the 1950s who got knocked up, but not knocked down.”
“Deeply affecting and beautifully written.”
“An award-winning memoir of courageous escape.”
“Extraordinary… Should stand out for its combination of powerful writing, wicked black humor and social history.”
“Shockingly frank, but also witty, passionate, and utterly lacking self-pity — and surprisingly uplifting.”
“Deserves special notice… The intensely personal story will resonate with more than just Anglophiles.”
“Deserves to become a classic.”
