en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 06 Aug 2015
Penelope Lively's Booker Prize winning classic, Moon Tiger is a haunting story of loss and desire, published here as a Penguin Essential for the first time.
Claudia Hampton - beautiful, famous, independent, dying.
But she remains defiant to the last, telling her nurses that she will write a 'history of the world . . . and in the process, my own'. And it is her story from a childhood just after the First World War through the Second and beyond. But Claudia's life is entwined with others and she must allow those who knew her, loved her, the chance to speak, to put across their point of view. There is Gordon, brother and adversary; Jasper, her untrustworthy lover and father of Lisa, her cool conventional daughter; and then there is Tom, her one great love, found and lost in wartime Egypt.

'A complex tapestry of great subtlety. Lively writes so well, savouring the words as she goes' Daily Telegraph
'Very clever: evocative, thought-provoking and hangs on the mind long after it is finished' Literary Review

Recenzii

Leaves its traces in the air long after you've put it away
A complex tapestry of great subtlety. Lively writes so well, savouring the words as she goes
Very clever: evocative, thought-provoking and hangs on the mind long after it is finished
Lively's ability to bring her character and the world she inhabits into full technicolour is beautiful. This is a unique book about a fascinating unpredictable woman way ahead of her time and yet absolutely of her time
One of Britain's most celebrated novelists. Moon Tiger's multiple, shifting viewpoints weaves an eloquent disquisition on memory, identity, age, love and regret
Atmospheric, inventive. Few books I've read recently have given me so much pleasure.
