THE SHIP OF BRIDES

THE SHIP OF BRIDES

Shortlisted for the 2005 RNA Novel of the Year award, a moving and gorgeously-written book from Jojo Moyes, based on a true story.
The 2005 novel The Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes, the bestselling author of Me Before You and two-time winner of the RNA Novel of the Year award.

Australia, 1946. 650 brides are departing for England to meet the men they married in wartime. But instead of the luxury liner they were expecting, they find themselves aboard an aircraft carrier, alongside a thousand men.
On the sun-baked decks, old loves and past promises become distant memories, and tensions are stretched to the limit as brides and husbands change their minds. And for Frances Mackenzie, one bride in particular, it soon becomes clear that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.

Cortázar přivádí čtenáře do mnohoznačného světa, kde se neznatelně prostupuje skutečnost s imaginací, postavy provozují zvláštní obřady,mizí hranice snění a bdění či se u nich převracejí znaménka. Najdeme tu Cortázarova typická témata:sny, kočky, obrazy, čas, hudbu, nástrahy jazyka. Kromě povídek vydaných v českém výboru Změna osvětlení (1990) naše kniha obsahuje i povídky dosud do češtiny nepřeložené.
