Nominacja do Nagrody Bookera!


Profesorów Belseya i Kippsa łączy zamiłowanie do piękna i podziw dla Rembrandta. Dzieli zaś stosunek do piękna i do Rembrandta, a to wystarczy, by zostali wrogami na śmierć i życie. Gdy Kippsowie przenoszą się za ocean i osiedlają w kampusie, gdzie mieszkają Belseyowie, losy ich rodzin splatają się w nieprzewidywalny sposób, a komplikacje mnożą się jak szalone.

4.0 Zadie Smith - On Beauty

Here is something you should know – I was a serious book-worm up until I turned 16 (more or less) at which point I lost all interest in anything that wasn’t parties, boys, alcohol, drugs or sex. There, I said it. For the next five years my...
