A God in Ruins

Costa Novel Award Winner 2015

A God in Ruins relates the life of Teddy Todd - would-be poet, heroic World War II bomber pilot, husband, father, and grandfather - 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.
This gripping, often deliriously funny yet emotionally devastating book looks at war - that great fall of Man from grace - and the effect it has, not only on those who live through it, but on the lives of the subsequent generations. It is also about the infinite magic of fiction.Those who loved the bestselling Life After Life will recognise Teddy as Ursula Todd's adored younger brother - but for those who have not read it, A God in Ruins stands fully on its own. Few will dispute that it proves once again that Kate Atkinson is one of the most exceptional novelists of our age.
Rezension
" Triumphant...such a dazzling read ... Atkinson gives Teddy's wartime experiences the full treatment in a series of thrilling set pieces. Even more impressive ,though, is her ability to invest the more everday events with a similar grandeur ... almost as innovative as Atkinson's technique in Life After Life - a possibly more authentic as an expression of how it feels to be alive...it ends on one of the most devastating twists in recent fiction. ... it adds a further level of overwhelming poignancy to an already extraordinarily affecting book." (James Walton Daily Telegraph)
