Reading in the DarkDe (autor) Seamus Deane
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – May 1997
"Reading In The Dark is a swift, masterful transformation of family griefs and political violence into something at once rhapsodic and heartbreaking. If Isaac Babel had been born in Derry, he might have written this sudden, brilliant book." Seamus Heaney "Marvellous...almost impossible to put down" -- Blake Morrison Independent on Sunday "Go into your nearest bookshop and buy Reading In The Dark... A novel that no reader with any concern for their heart or mind should be without" -- A. L. Kennedy Scotsman "A wonderful evocation of childhood; a vibrant, unforgettable fragment that leaves you aching for more" -- Robert McCrum Observer "A profoundly emotive and seamlessly structured exploration of loss and regret. It is also funny and authentic. What more could one ask of a book?" -- Antonia Logue Guardian
