    eBook Jim Crace Ý Continent ePUB Ì Ý continent book, Continent PDF Continent is a series of vaguely linked ethnographic leaning tales that for whatever reason was marketed as a novel and actually won a Whitbread Award for First Novel in 1986 The links are primarily geographical as the stories are all based in various locales on an unnamed continent resembling Africa Echoes of Borges resound as do the closer in time only a few years later stories of Patricia Eakins Crace's world resides a little closer to realism though Mention is made of countries in Europe and places in North America for example But the titular continent and the activities of its denizens remain just obscure and mysterious en

    eBook Jim Crace Ý Continent ePUB Ì Ý continent book, Continent PDFMy copy of Continent contains the following inscription For SimonChristmas 1986All the best for the New Year any new continents you may take on There's a signature below it but it's incomprehensible The copy in uestion is a hardback published by William Heinemann in London in 1986 apparently a first edition sold for £495 net with a sticker saying you can afford the journey put on a cover someone Simon? Simon's giver? removed it from this copy How far have we gone can you imagine a brand new hardcover being sold at a bookstore with the retail price of five uid?I wondered about Simon What kind of a person was he? The inscription implied him to be a traveler and one who has journeyed beyond his native continent Did he enjoy the book? This isn't a novel but a collection of seven stories set in an unnamed fictitious seventh continent where old tradition clashes wit

    eBook Jim Crace Ý Continent ePUB Ì Ý continent book, Continent PDFI read this book when it first came out in 1986 as part of my research into what makes a good writer It features perfectly competent short stories but despite all the publisher's claims to the work's originality there were not as far as I can recall any huge surprises or twists and turns that could not be foreseen It reminded me of one of those chairs or cabinets that a journeyman was reuired to produce in order to obtain membership of a guild proof of the

    eBook Jim Crace Ý Continent ePUB Ì Ý continent book, Continent PDF35 This was Crace's first book a book of short stories that surprisingly won the Whitebread award for first fiction Surprising because the award went to a book of short stories These are stories that take place in a made up place said to be the sixth continent or is it? Craces explores societies coming up against the old superstitions faced with new scientific progress Much that happens everywhere everyday His stories explore the ambiguity of changes and progress on the people and this world I liked them I like the way he writes Very clear and concise easy to follow The stories are often an exaggeration of our most hidden fears How things and people that are different are looked on with suspicion How we many times embrace the old because it is familiar even when it is not working Good c
