Opis: A Brief History of Seven Killings - Marlon James

*WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2015* JAMAICA, 1976 Seven gunmen storm Bob Marley's house, machine guns blazing. The reggae superstar survives, but the gunmen are never caught. From the acclaimed author of The Book of Night Women comes a dazzling display of masterful storytelling exploring this near-mythic event. Spanning three decades and crossing continents, A Brief History of Seven Killings chronicles the lives of a host of unforgettable characters - slum kids, drug lords, journalists, prostitutes, gunmen and even the CIA. Gripping and inventive, ambitious and mesmerising, A Brief History of Seven Killings is one of the most remarkable and extraordinary novels of the twenty-first century. 'A truly remarkable novel, crammed with a multitude of narrative voices, leaping across continents, reeking of sweat and gunpowder, slick with blood...As bold as literature can be'. GQ 'Violent, lurid, scabrous, hilarious and beautiful, this novel teems with life, death and narrators. A deserving winner of...the Man Booker prize by the first Jamaican to carry off the award'. Economist Books of the Year 2015 'Epic in every sense of that word: sweeping, mythic, over-the-top, colossal and dizzyingly complex.' New York Times 'Showcases the extraordinary capabilities of a writer whose importance can scarcely be questioned.' Independent 'A vivid plunge into a crazed, violent and corrupt world... executed with swaggering aplomb' -- Irvine Welsh '[James's] talent has grown from book to book, and his imagination consistently shines a light on dark and gory places...this is a work that explores the aesthetics of cacophony and also the aesthetics of violence.' Guardian 'resembles James Ellroy's LA Quartet in its blistering violence, multiple voices and view of history "from the gutter to the star"' The Daily Telegraph 'Critics rave about James' mastery of both oral history storytelling and patois dialect, and his ability to craft and juggle perspectives that often contradict and obscure the truth. With comparisons to the works of David Foster Wallace and Quentin Tarantino, James has garnered the highest of contemporary praise.' Wired 10 Best Books of 2014 'This tense and violent, but very compelling, novel is a big book in more ways than one.' The Herald 'A brilliant novel' -- Library Journal 'Scary and lyrically beautiful - you'll want to read whole pages aloud to strangers.' -- Russell Banks 'Not only persuasive, but tragic, though in its polyphony and scope it's more than that ... the book's increasing sense of absurdity, its pop culture references, its compulsive ventriloquism and its range of tones - comic, surreal, nightmarish, parodic - began to remind me uncannily of David Foster Wallace's all-or-nothing Infinite Jest.' New York Times Book Review
