9780385618717: A God in Ruins

Kate Atkinson’s dazzling Life After Life, the bestselling adult book this year to date in the UK, explored the possibility of infinite chances, as Ursula Todd lived through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. In A God in Ruins, Atkinson turns her focus on Ursula’s beloved younger brother Teddy – would-be poet, RAF bomber pilot, husband and father – as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century. For all Teddy endures in battle, his greatest challenge will be to face living in a future he never expected to have.

A God in Ruins is a masterful companion to Life After Life, and will prove once again that Kate Atkinson is one of the finest novelists of our age.

Review:

"Horribly funny...every page has some vividly original phrase...But the tour de force is her treatment of Teddy’s experience as a bomber pilot, recreated as memorably as the Blitz scenes in Life After Life... nothing can quite account for the imaginative leaps she has made...nailbiting...a really affecting memorial to the huge numbers of bomber crew who died." ( Standard)

"Atkinson pursues her own games with time, with an understated gracefulness that endows these pages with an assured, easeful sweep. In turn, we spend less time marvelling at Atkinson's bold formal accomplishment and more on what's happening to Teddy and others...bleakly funny...with her excellent new book, Atkinson reveals just how admirable such an ordinary man's life can be." ( Financial Times)

"A riveting exploration of the complexities of family life" ( Psychologies)

"Kate Atkinson's understanding of how we work is off the scale" ( Sainsbury's Magazine)

"As ever, Kate Atkinson is adept at ferreting her way into the minds of unlovely characters until you feel you know and understand them...While this is a tale of a life spared, the tone is one of elegy" ( Daily Mail)

Book Description:

The companion novel to Kate Atkinson's number one Sunday Times bestseller Life After Life.
