Hours

«

‘“The Hours” is a book which heightens the perception of the reader. Cunningham’s craftsmanship is overwhelming.’ Robert Farren, Independent on Sunday

‘An extremely moving, original and memorable novel.’ Hermione Lee, TLS

‘Engrossing, imaginative and humane.’ Richard Francis, Observer

‘“The Hours” refracts the lives of three women through the prism of a single day. Michael Cunningham evokes these three discrete characters with rare skill.’ Financial Times

‘The concept behind the novel is bold, the execution rich with feeling.’ Helen Dunmore, The Times

‘A sensitive marriage of intelligence, integrity and finely textured emotions.’ Sunday Times

‘Cunningham has found an American tone which is exhilaratingly modern – tense, tender and completely without strain.’ Guardian

Romanen er en hyllest til Virginia Woolf. Cunningham vever Woolfs historie sammen med historiene til to andre kvinner. En dag i 1923 våkner Virginia Woolf av en drøm som vil lede til romanen Mrs. Dalloway. I nåtida planlegger Clarissa et selskap i Greenwich Village for sin eldste kjærlighet, en poet som er døende av AIDS og i 1949 i Los Angeles forbereder den gravide Laura Brown ektemannens bursdag, men hun klarer ikke å stoppe å lese Woolf. Kvinnene er lenket sammen av romanen fra 1925 og av de verdifulle øyeblikkene av muligheter som de alle kommer tilbake til.
