    En trykkende varm sommer tager forfatteren Faye til Athen for at undervise i et skrivekursus. Allerede i flyet på vej derned begynder livshistorierne at udfolde sig omkring hende, og hendes rejse bliver en rejse ind i andre menneskers fortællinger. Som en tom beholder med et lyttende øre lader hun sig udfylde af andres historier. Selvom der næsten intet røbes om Faye selv, tegner der sig gennem hendes spørgsmål og de mange samtaler et billede af en kvinde, der forsøger at komme sig over et stort tab. Pressen skriver: »Vanvittig interessant læsning ... Jeg sidder tilbage med fornemmelsen af at have læst en kommende klassiker.« ****** – Femina »Livskloge Rachel Cusk skriver sig ind under huden på sin læsere med en roman om kvinden alle har lyst til at betro sig til.« ***** – Politiken »Fornyer romankunsten.« ***** – Kristeligt Dagblad »Cusk udforsker friheden ved at tie helt stille. Det er frysende gjort.« – Weekendavisen »En virkelig vellykket roman. Forestil dig, at Henry James' psykologiske mesterværk 'De ensomme i Venedig' møder Karen Blixens øje for detalje og mystik, og du har en fornemmelse af, hvad Rachel Cusk kan.« – Litteratursiden

    Efter sin skilsmisse flytter forfatteren Faye med sine to sønner til London for at begynde på en frisk. Men opbruddet fører andre ændringer med sig - af både personlig, moralsk, kunstnerisk og ikke mindst praktisk karakter. Faye sætter sit hus i stand og taler med de mennesker hun møder i et et forsøg på at genfinde troen på livet, men vakler mellem at føle sig stærk og fuldkommen magtesløs. En elegant og reflekteret roman om menneskers livsfortællinger; om hvordan vi forsøger at styre vores liv ved at fortælle, men også om, hvordan fortællingerne forvandler os. Andet bind af den kritikerroste trilogi, der består af bøgerne Omrids, Transit og Kudos. Pressen skriver: »En eminent forfatter: Andet bind i trilogien om Faye er lige så mesterligt som det første (…) det er stadig menneskers rejser gennem hinanden, der skaber det fantastiske samtidsportræt.« ***** – Politiken »Både hjem og ægteskab er smadret i Transit, anden del af Rachel Cusks mesterlige trilogi, der sender romangenren ad nye veje (…) allerede med de to første bind i trilogien står det lysende klart, at Rachel Cusk har gang i noget ganske særligt.« – Information »Rachel Cusk har skabt en romanform, hvor fortællerens samtalepartnere fylder det meste med dybe refleksioner (…) en helt speciel læseoplevelse.« **** – Kristeligt Dagblad »Tryllebindende.« – Litteratursiden

    Forfatteren Faye er inviteret til en litteraturfestival i et sted i Europa for at promovere sin nye bog. Allerede på flyet falder hun i snak med sin sidemand, der begynder at fortælle hende om sit liv. Han fortæller om sit job, sit ægteskab og om den forfærdelige nat, han lige har tilbragt med at begrave familiens døde hund. På festivalen fortsætter Faye samtalerne med de mennesker, hun møder. De taler om de store spørgsmål i livet, om kunst, familie, politik, kærlighed, sorg og glæde, retfærdighed og uretfærdighed, udholdenhed og succes, i både kunsten og livet, og om de erfaringer, man gør sig gennem livets overgange. Med Kudos afsluttes Rachel Cusks kritikerroste og prisvindende trilogi, der er blevet kaldt for en fornyelse af romankunsten, på overbevisende og kraftfuld vis.

    Agnes Day - sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire - is unwell. Terminally middle-class, incurably romantic and chronically confused by life's most basic interactions, Agnes discovers disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world, making recovery unlikely. Life and love go on without her, but with a little facade, she can pass herself off as a success. Beneath the fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear. 'She is a writer with a poet's eye for convincing detail, and touches on the raw emotions of life in a way that is affecting and true.' Sunday Telegraph'Told with irony and insight and some surreally beautiful imagery. At times it made me laugh out loud.' Sheila Mackay

  • - Om at blive mor
    af Rachel Cusk
    198,95 kr.

    Omrids-trilogien gjorde Rachel Cusk verdenskendt som en blændende observatør og stilist. I denne bog vender hun blikket indad og beskriver sine oplevelser med at blive mor - på godt og ondt. En fortælling om at sige farvel til frihed, søvn og tid til at skrive, og en lektion i ydmyghed, hårdt arbejde og afgrundsdyb kærlighed. Bogen vakte stor forargelse, da den udkom i 2001, og gjorde Rachel Cusk til en af Englands mest kontroversielle forfattere. I dag regnes Et Livsværk for en milepæl i moderskabslitteraturen. Bogen har for længst fået klassikerstatus og blev af New York Times kåret som en af de sidste 50 års bedste selvbiografier.”Cusk viser med stor styrke, hvor ømt og brutalt moderskab er.” - Independent ”Rachel Cusks bog om hendes første år som mor, er noget af det skarpeste, jeg har læst om moderskab.” - Berliner Zeitung

    When first published in 2001, it divided female critics and readers. One famous columnist wrote a piece demanding that Cusk's children were taken into care, that was she was unfit to look after them. Oprah Winfrey invited her on the show to defend herself and the book as protests grew about the its honest, gritty account of the misery of those early months. It is a seminal, stand-out book on the complications of being an ambivalent mum in an age of white-washed, Annabel Karmel'd new families.

  • - A Novel
    af Rachel Cusk
    84,95 kr.

    A woman writer goes to Athens in the height of summer to teach a writing course. Though her own circumstances remain indistinct, she becomes the audience to a chain of narratives, as the people she meets tell her one after another the stories of their lives.Beginning with the neighbouring passenger on the flight out and his tales of fast boats and failed marriages, the storytellers talk of their loves and ambitions and pains, their anxieties, their perceptions and daily lives. In the stifling heat and noise of the city the sequence of voice begins to weave a complex human tapestry. The more they talk the more elliptical their listener becomes, as she shapes and directs their accounts until certain themes begin to emerge: the experience of loss, the nature of family life, the difficulty of intimacy and the mystery of creativity itself.Outline is a novel about writing and talking, about self-effacement and self-expression, about the desire to create and the human art of self-portraiture in which that desire finds its universal form.

    Stella Benson sets off for Hilltop, a tiny Sussex village housing a family that is somewhat larger than life. Her hopes for the Maddens may be high, but her station among them, as au pair to their irascible son Martin - is undeniably low. What could possibly have driven her to leave her home, job and life in London for such rural ignominy? Why has she severed all contact with her parents? Why is she so reluctant to talk about her past?The Country Life, Rachel Cusk's third novel, is a rich and subtle story about embarrassment, awkwardness and being alone; about families, or the lack of them; and about love in some peculiar guises.

    Arlington Park, a modern-day English suburb, is a place devoted to the profitable ordinariness of life. Amidst its leafy avenues and comfortable houses, its residents live out the dubious accomplishments of civilisation: material prosperity, personal freedom, and moral indifference. For all that, Arlington Park is strikingly conventional. Men work, women look after children, and people generally do what's expected of them. Theirs is a world awash with contentment but empty of belief, and riven with strange anxieties. Set over the course of a single rainy day, the novel moves from one household to another, and through the passing hours conducts a deep examination of its characters' lives: of Juliet, enraged at the victory of men over women in family life; of Amanda, warding off thoughts of death with obsessive housework; of Solly, who confronts her own buried femininity in the person of her Italian lodger; of Maisie, despairing at the inevitability with which beauty is destroyed; and of Christine, whose troubled, hilarious spirit presides over Arlington Park and the way of life it represents.Rachel Cusk's sixth novel is her best yet. Full of compassion and wit, each page laden with truth, she writes about her characters' domestic lives, their private thoughts and fears with an intelligence and insight that will leave readers reeling.

    Since leaving his job to look after Alexa, his eight year old daughter, Thomas Bradshaw has found the structure of his daily piano practice and the study of musical form brings a nourishment to these difficult middle years. His pursuit of a more artistic way of life shocks and irritates his parents and his in-laws. Why has he swapped roles with Tonie Swann, his intense, intellectual wife who has accepted a demanding full-time University job? How can this be good for Alexa and for the family as a whole?Tonie tunes herself out of domestic life, into the harder, headier world of work where long-since forgotten memories of herself are awakened. She soon finds herself outside their tight family circle and alive to previously unimaginable possibilities.Over the course of a year full of crisis and revelation, we follow the fortunes of Thomas, Tonie, his brothers and their families: Howard, the older, more successful brother and his gregarious wife Claudia; and Leo, lacking confidence, propped up by Susie, his sharp-tongued, heavy-drinking wife. At the head of the family, the ageing Bradshaw parents continue their marital dynamic of bickering and petty undermining.The Bradshaw Variations is a powerful novel about how our choices and our loves and the family life we build will always be an echo - a variation - of a theme played out in our own childhood. The novel, Cusk's sixth , shows a prize-winning writer at the height of her powers.

    From Rachel Cusk, her first collection of essays about motherhood, marriage, feminism, and artRachel Cusk redrew the boundaries of fiction with the Outline trilogy, three "e;literary masterpieces"e; (Washington Post) whose narrator, Faye, perceives the world with a glinting, unsparing intelligence while remaining opaque to the reader. Lauded for the precision of her prose and the quality of her insight, Cusk is a writer of uncommon brilliance. Now, in Coventry, she gathers a selection of her nonfiction writings that both offers new insights on the themes at the heart of her fiction and forges a startling critical voice on some of our most urgent personal, social, and artistic questions.Coventry encompasses memoir, cultural criticism, and writing about literature, with pieces on family life, gender, and politics, and on D. H. Lawrence, Francoise Sagan, and Kazuo Ishiguro. Named for an essay Cusk published in Granta ("e;Every so often, for offences actual or hypothetical, my mother and father stop speaking to me. There's a funny phrase for this phenomenon in England: it's called being sent to Coventry"e;), this collection is pure Cusk and essential listening for our age: fearless, unrepentantly erudite, and dazzling to behold.

    Dupa destramarea familiei, o scriitoare se muta la Londra, impreuna cu cei doi fii ai sai. Aceasta rasturnare de situatie reprezinta factorul catalizator pentru mai multe tranzitii - de ordin personal, moral, artistic si practic. Privita din perspectiva protagonistei, o femeie de o inteligenta sclipi - toare, naratiunea aprofundeaza temele prefigurate in apreciatul roman Schita si ofera o reflectie patrunzatoare si emotionanta asupra copilariei si destinului, valorii suferintei, responsabilitatii personale si misterului schimbarii. In Tranzitie, cel de-al doilea dintr-o scurt a dar memorabil a serie de ro - mane, Cusk descrie experientele elementare si aspectele profund liminale ale vietii. Cartea trateaza, cu o onestitate tulburatoare, tema conflictului launtric dintre dorinta de a-ti trai viata si aceea de a evada din ea, a ambivalentei sfasietoare ce insufleteste nazuinta fiecaruia dintre noi de a se simti autentic. Cusk este de multa vreme una dintre cele mai bune si mai revigorante voci din literatura de limba engleza, daruita cu precizie stiintifica, cu o sintaxa meticuloasa si cu un umor caustic. Frazele ei sunt savuroase... In cartile cele mai recente, a gasit o metoda narativa care asigura libertate vitala pentru inteligenta ei formidabila, pentru umorul ei innascut si pentru agerimea spiritului de observatie."e; The New York Review of Books Rachel Cusk readuce fictiunea la originile sale narative... Telul autoarei este instaurarea unui limbaj in acelasi timp convingator si oniric si a unei viziuni absolut personale asupra lumii."e; The Washington Post Hipnotic... O realizare majora... Aceasta scriitoare nu are nevoie sa-si regaseasca aplombul pentru ca niciodata nu si-l pierde."e; The New York Times Originalitatea tehnica a lui Rachel Cusk este egalata de natura convingatoare a tematicii, iar Tranzitie este, intr-adevar, un roman foarte bun."e; The Observer Un roman magistral scris si structurat, ceea ce nu mai reprezinta o noutate venind din partea acestei autoare extrem de talentate."e; Kirkus Reviews
