Textul de pe ultima copertă

Forty-four-year-old Reta Winters, wife, mother, writer, and translator, is living a happy life until one of her three daughters drops out of university to sit on a downtown street corner silent and cross-legged with a begging bowl in her lap and a placard round her neck that says "Goodness."
The final book from Pulitzer Prize-winner Carol Shields, Unless is a candid and deeply moving novel from one of the twentieth century's most accomplished and beloved authors.


“A landmark book...yet another noteworthy addition to Shields’s impressive body of work.”
“A brave, profound, and quirky novel with an undercurrent of the deeply amusing.”
“A wonderful, powerful book, written in a style which combines simplicity and elegance. I found it deeply moving.”
“Finely detailed, thoughtful and sometimes even humorous, this book is highly recommended for all fiction collections.”
“Often quietly heartbreaking...often, bitingly humorous.”
“Marvelously idiosyncratic, passionate and wise, Shields’ tenth novel rollicks from beginning to end with sauciness and wit.”
“Nothing short of astonishing.”
“A thing of beauty—lucidly written, artfully ordered, riddled with riddles and undergirded with dark layers of philosophical meditations.”
“With a poet’s precision, Shields dissects grief and makes coping with bad luck feel like domestic heroism.”
“Some hefty perceptions, fortunately shared with us in this fine novel.”
“The best of her novels...fearless, smart, funny, beautifully written.”
“A fine book, poignant, witty, rich in character, vivid in its sense of place...surprisingly suspenseful.”
“Remarkably subtle and of those books that make you regret that reading is a solitary pleasure.”
“Luminous ... Shields is a consummate master of tone and acute psychological insight.”
“A luminous novel ...Shields writes with clarity, intelligence and generosity, finding meaning in most mundane details of home life.”
“A novel of...assured intelligence and defiant vivacity.”
“When Shields is good she is very good. There are nuggets of pure gold in Unless.”
“An engaging, memorable novel.”
“Relentlessly fine...imagined with style and vigor, melancholoy and wisdom.”
“Closely observed moments create the kind of subtle textures and elegant prose that won Ms. Shields the Pulitzer Prize.”
“Unless succeeds beautifully...Shields [is] an expert at illuminating the complicated dynamics of off-kilter families.”
“A fitting farewell from an author revered for her graceful, insightful writing...sparkles with wry humor and elegant irony.”
“Truly, a miracle of language and perception.”
“All the trademark Shields delights are robustly present: idiosyncratic plotting; limber prose...deep compassion...tart commentary and irreverent wit.”
“Entirely satisfying… Shields’ voice, tender and moderated at all times, remains wise and very readable.”
“Shields’s novels and short stories are intensely imagined, humanely generous, beautifully sustained and impeccably detailed.”
“A superb new novel...a graceful coda, an arabesque performed over an abyss.”
“All novelists worth their fictional salt can create fine characters; Carol Shields creates lives. ”
“A raw, subtle, inspiring novel about feminism, femininity, virtue, oppression and motherhood...I was inexpressibly moved by it.”
“Her wisdom and generosity of spirit are visible at every turn.”
