Confessions

Drawing comparisons with Shadow of the Wind, The Name of the Rose and The Reader, and an instant bestseller in more than 20 languages, Confessions is an astonishing story of one man s life, interwoven with a narrative that stretches across centuries to create an addictive and unforgettable literary symphony. I confess. At 60 and with a diagnosis of early Alzheimer s, Adria Ardevol re-examines his life before his memory is systematically deleted. He recalls a loveless childhood where the family antique business and his father s study become the centre of his world; where a treasured Storioni violin retains the shadows of a crime committed many years earlier. His mother, a cold, distant and pragmatic woman leaves him to his solitary games, full of unwanted questions. An accident ends the life of his enigmatic father, filling Adria s world with guilt, secrets and deeply troubling mysteries that take him years to uncover and driving him deep into the past where atrocities are methodically exposed and examined. Gliding effortlessly between centuries, and at the same time providing a powerful narrative that is at once shocking, compelling, mysterious, tragic, humorous and gloriously readable, Confessions reaches a crescendo that is not only unexpected but provides one of the most startling denouements in contemporary literature. Confessions is a consummate masterpiece in any language, with an ending that will not just leave you thinking, but quite possibly change the way you think forever.

  • "De zoon van een Barcelonese antiquair ontdekt dat zijn vader er duistere praktijken op na hield."
  • ""Si la botiga d'antiguitats de la família és tot un univers per al petit Adrià, el despatx del seu pare és el centre d'aquest univers, i el tresor més preuat de tots és un magnífic violí del segle XVIII al voltant del qual giren moltes històries d'aquesta novel·la de novel·les. Jo confesso és una llarga carta d'amor d'algú que ha hagut de jugar sol durant molts anys, entre llibres vells i secrets inconfessats; d'algú que ha estimat de manera incondicional; d'algú que se sent culpable d'una mort violenta, i d'algú que no entén el mal que recorre la història d'Occident."--P. [4] of cover."
