Beschreibung

Hailed as a masterpiece, Tinkers, Paul Harding's Pulitzer Prize-winning debut, is a modern classic. Here, in Enon, Harding follows a year in the life of Charlie Crosby as he tries to come to terms with a shattering personal tragedy. Grandson of George Crosby (the protagonist of Tinkers), Charlie inhabits the same dynamic landscape of New England, its seasons mirroring his turbulent emotional odyssey. Along the way, Charlie's encounters are brought to life by his wit, his insights into history, and his yearning to understand the big questions. A stunning mosaic of human experience, Enon affirms Paul Harding as one of the most gifted and profound writers of his generation.

" Harding’s prose is perfect – simple, sharp and creative."

Paul Harding

"I don't think I've read anything quite so strangely moving for a very long time. Such a relief to know there are still writers around who can write about real people, and who notice the world around them, and can turn that into exquisite art. Unbearably tense, but so rewarding as well . every snatch of dialogue seemed pitch-perfect." Gerard Woodward "Harding's skillful whipsawing of the reader from the surreal to the quotidian is the best writing he's done ... Beautifully turned: Harding has defogged his style a bit and gained a stronger emotional impact from it." Kirkus Review "Gorgeous and haunting . Harding's second novel again proves he's a contemporary master and one of our most important voices." Publisher's Weekly "Harding writes with superb sensitivity about the mental and physical effects of a broken heart." -- Kate Saunders The Times "A hypnotic portrayal of loss and resilience . In Enon, Harding rises still more triumphantly to the challenge: of delineating the precise contours of physical and mental anguish . Enon is the very opposite of depressing. An unflinching account of the savage pain of loss, yes, but also a deeply moving portrayal of human resilience, this is a novel about death and mortality that goes to the heart of the "awful miracle" of life and living . Harding conveys both the physical world of Enon and the physicality of grief in prose of hypnotic beauty. Long, sinuous sentences move seamlessly from descriptions of actions and objects to thoughts, memories, hallucinatory imaginings . Harding is an extraordinary writer, for the intoxicating power of his prose, the range of his imagination, and above all for the redemptive humanity of his vision. With painstaking brilliance, Enon charts one man's attempt to salvage meaning from meaningless tragedy, to endure the ubiquitous presence of a loved one's absence ... That Enon is a work of fiction that feels authentic as memoir makes it all the more astonishing." Financial Times
