Beschreibung

Colum McCann's last novel, Let the Great World Spin, won the National Book Award, was a New York Times bestseller and sold over a million copies worldwide. Sweeping 150 years of history and using the real-life narratives of Frederick Douglass, Alcock and Brown, and Senator George Mitchell, TRANSATLANTIC is Colum McCann's most ambitious and beautiful novel yet. TRANSATLANTIC can be compared with the work of Michael Ondaatje, E. L. Doctorow and David Mitchell in its scope and literary quality.

This novel is beautifully hypnotic in its movements, from the grand (between two continents, across three centuries) to the most subtle. Silkily threading together public events and private feelings, TransAtlantic says no to death with every line. Those who can't see the point of historical novels will find their answer here: in all intelligent fiction, the past has not passed Emma Donoghue Expertly constructed ... At its best, as in the superbly rendered early scene of Alcock and Brown's flight, the prose is poetically vivid -- Mark O'Connell Observer Few contemporary writers are better at subtracting the sublime from the base ... A kind of cat's cradle of transatlantic journeys, all connected, all built on another thing -- Hermione Hoby Guardian A challenging, beautifully woven novel about the real and imagined. Fans of Ian McEwan will love it -- Viv Groskop Red McCann is no stranger to literary prizes - but if I were him, I'd start clearing my mantelpiece for a few more -- James Walton Daily Mail McCann makes us wonder at how his characters get from A to B; he encourages us to see how journeys elicit distinctions and closeness between people ... He is especially striking when he describes the weather: the wind muscles through the grass; clouds perform a curtsy. He has a telegraphic style of transmitting historical content -- Freya Johnston Daily Telegraph Colum McCann is a very gifted, charming writer; in full, rhapsodic-onrush mode, he is hard to resist. He coins a good phrase...TransAtlantic is deft, well crafted, and broad in its imaginative range. The many people who loved his last novel will certainly enjoy this one Guardian A marvellously engrossing journey, studded with ideas and lyrical treats The Times It is a record not of great men and great moments but of small, elegant details and personal loss New Statesman McCann's prose aspires towards the atmospheric and descriptive...Stylistically, McCann shares a great deal with Michael Ondaatje, while the presence of Don DeLillo, both in form and content, is also apparent ... McCann is drawn to lives lived, and his vivid, reactive and heartfelt fiction lives and breathes, sighs and weeps. Above all, his characters remember the past and contemplate the future Irish Times Blending fact and fiction with a poet's precision ... There's no doubting the novel's lyrical and emotional power though Sunday Express McCann's ability to move through such vastly differing places and personalities is as uncanny as it is relentless. Most of the novel is held remarkably together by only the most delicate of strands, through the gentle echoes resonating between the book's diverse wandering characters ... What drives the novel - like all of McCann's fiction - is simply the author's sturdy, humane, unfailing knack for animating period and place in the inner minutiae of individual lives Sunday Times
