Descrizione prodotto


‘Desarthe is a daring and imaginative writer. Through Max Opass, she lets her lucid prose plunder dreams and question the meaning of existence.’

‘A rare tribute to the love of a wife… Desarthe’s novel, lucidly translated by Adriana Hunter, is delicate, subtle and full of charm.’
Daily Mail

‘Ageing and frailty, both physical and emotinal, are rarely presented with such sheer beauty. Five Photos of My Wife has a limpid, effortless elegance: prose by Chanel.’
Scotland on Sunday


Agnes Desarthe is a prize-winning author of children’s books, among her published books for adults are ‘Five Photos of My Wife’ and ‘Good Intentions’.

A widower's story 19 agosto 2013
Di Shalom Freedman - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This story of an aging widower's contending with his loss reminded me a bit of the work of Anita Brookner. The characters are not - very- Jewish Jews, people who were born as Jews but who have no real Jewish communal or religious connection. They do however have memories of relatives lost in the Shoah, and connections with other 'survivors' who did not know the worst horrors. They are mildly successful middle- class people who are in a way quite ordinary. Great intellectual matters, passionate causes are not at the heart of their lives. Their private stories are complicated and difficult, with there always being some kind of unsatisfactory element involved. Here the hero has two children who live far away whom he is in touch with by letter. His decision to have the portrait of his wife made photos he has of her brings him into contact with an odd cast of characters. Their description is of mild interest and the whole story has to my mind a certain lukewarm feeling.
I somehow did not have a sense of the kind of caring for the characters which Literature can inspire. On the other hand I found this work , competent, interesting, amusing.

Boring 22 luglio 2010
Di J4haw - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book was a difficult page turner that seriously lacked in the entertaining department for me.
I found the author's "dryness" to be plainly and simply "dull"
It all just seemed to be a little far fetched, thrown together with no real emphasis on scene setting nor ending.
