Opis: The Girls - Emma Cline

California. The summer of 1969. In the dying days of a floundering counter-culture a young girl is unwittingly caught up in unthinkable violence, and a decision made at this moment, on the cusp of adulthood, will shape her life..."This book will break your heart and blow your mind." (Lena Dunham) Evie Boyd is desperate to be noticed. In the summer of 1969, empty days stretch out under the California sun. The smell of honeysuckle thickens the air and the sidewalks radiate heat. Until she sees them. The snatch of cold laughter. Hair, long and uncombed. Dirty dresses skimming the tops of thighs. Cheap rings like a second set of knuckles. The girls. And at the centre, Russell. Russell and the ranch, down a long dirt track and deep in the hills. Incense and clumsily strummed chords. Rumours of sex, frenzied gatherings, teen runaways. Was there a warning, a sign of things to come? Or is Evie already too enthralled by the girls to see that her life is about to be changed forever? "The Girls is a brilliant and intensely consuming novel -- imposing not just for a writer so young, but for any writer, any time" Richard Ford "I don't know which is more amazing, Emma Cline's understanding of human beings or her mastery of language." -- Mark Haddon "Emma Cline's first novel positively hums with fresh, startling, luminous prose. THE GIRLS announces the arrival of a thrilling new voice in American fiction." -- Jennifer Egan "Emma Cline has an unparalleled eye for the intricacies of girlhood, turning the stuff of myth into something altogether more intimate. The Girls destroys our ability to consider violence a foreign territory, and reminds us that behind so many of our culture's fables exists a girl: unseen, unheard, angry. This book will break your heart and blow your mind." -- Lena Dunham "What an exhilarating read. Dream-like and heady, nuanced and complicated, I especially loved the needle-sharp observations about how young women let themselves be used, ignored and manipulated. An enjoyable and an important book." -- Emma Healey "a song of innocence and experience...Finely intelligent, often superbly written, with flashingly brilliant sentences" -- James Wood The New Yorker "a seductive and arresting coming-of-age story...spellbinding" New York Times Book Review "With the maturity of a writer twice her age, Cline has written a wise novel that's never showy: a quiet, seething confession of yearning and terror... Debut novels like this are rare, indeed" Washington Post "A tense and claustrophobic read that perfectly and painfully conjures the fragile expectancy of teenage girls." Stylist "A hazy, lazy, highly fictionalized but precisely, gorgeously written reworking of the Charles Manson story... The book of the summer." -- Alice Jones I "Cline is extraordinarily good... A beautifully written, consuming story which perfectly captures the mindset of an adolescent girl." -- Alice O'Keefe Bookseller "It triumphantly lives up to the hype" -- James Walton Reader's Digest "Keenly anticipated." Sunday Times "Cline deftly depicts the pressures that shape life as a young woman... She captures the bonds between women that both sustain and resist the violence of patriarchy... The atmosphere of languorous sun-drenched danger will stay with you for days." Diva "Cline hypnotically unpicks the psyche of a teenage girl... Cool, dreamy and dark debut." Psychologies "An intensely atmospheric story that perfectly captures the aching loneliness and longing of a teenage girl." -- Sarra Manning Red "This is a stand-out debut from a hugely accomplished 26-year-old author. It's beautifully written, completely gripping and perfectly catches a girl on the cusp of adulthood." Bookseller "Beautiful, heady language and under-the-skin storytelling." -- Kerry Fowler Sainsbury's Magazine
