9780091797034: I See You Everywhere

Louisa and Clem: two sisters who love each other more the further they move apart. Louisa Jardine is the elder one, the conscientious student, precise and careful, who yearns for a good marriage, a career in the arts, a family. Clem, the archetypal younger sibling, is the rebel: uncontainable, iconoclastic, committed to her work but not to the men who fall for her. Alternating between their voices, I See You Everywhere opens when the sisters are in their early twenties, still in the throes of mutual teenage wariness, and unfolds through their lives in a vivid, heart-rending story of what we can and cannot do for those we love. Louisa settles in New York while Clem, a wildlife biologist, moves restlessly about until she lands in the Rocky Mountains. Their complex bond, Louisa observes, is 'like a double helix, two souls coiling around a common axis, joined yet never touching'. Alive with the same sensual detail and riveting characterization that marks Julia Glass's previous novels, I See You Everywhere is a powerful and moving double portrait that reveals the very nature of sisterhood.

Review:

"The best novels entrance us by showing what is missed in life as much as by what's discovered; this is one." ( Daily Telegraph)

"Rich, intricate and alive with emotion ... Glass has used the edges and color blocks of her own life to build an honest portrait of sister-love and sister-hate" ( New York Times Book Review)

"Louisa and Clem, the sisters at the very centre of this wonderfully vivid, truthful novel, are (as Louisa puts it) "not exactly soul mates. Historically we're kind of like England and France"... [a] quarter century of their lives unfolds, switching between their two voices, kept beautifully distinct by Glass." ( The Times)

"The beauty of this story lies in its rich detail and the descriptions of the emotions and events that have shaped the sisters' complex relationship. A riveting and intricate read." ( Candis)

"An engaging and intelligent page-turner" ( Publishers Weekly)

Review:

`Glass writes with a bracing emotional and intellectual intensity, and . . . so accurately depicts the complexities of the sororal bond . . .'
