A Possible Life

A Novel in Five Parts

Every atom links us. Every feeling binds us. Every thought connects us. From the bestselling author of BIRDSONG and A WEEK IN DECEMBER comes a multi-layered narrative that is both provocative and profound. Journeying across continents and time, it explores the chaos created by love, separation and missed opportunities, and illustrates our shared humanity with the echo of memories and experiences.
Portrait

Sebastian Faulks was born and brought up in Newbury, Berkshire. He worked in journalism before starting to write books. He is best known for the French trilogy, The Girl at the Lion d'Or, Birdsong and Charlotte Gray (1989-1997) and is also the author of a triple biography, The Fatal Englishman (1996); a small book of literary parodies, Pistache (2006); and the novels Human Traces (2005), Engleby (2007) and A Week in December (2009). He lives in London with his wife and their three children.

Zitat
"In form and scope, Sebastian Faulks's new novel is an unexpected delight ... There's little sense of Faulks overreaching with heavily researched detail ... you trust the narrative whether it is set in a workhouse or a death camp or a recording studio ... It's rare to see an established writer broaden his range. A tightly written, moving and exciting work of fiction that deserves success, it should thrill established readers as well as win new fans. If you think you know Faulks - or even (and especially) if you haven't enjoyed his previous novels - it's time to look again." Telegraph "Like the albums that Jack and Anya agonise over, A Possible Life is more than the sum of its parts ... the stories acquire power as resonances between them accrete. Only at the end do you realise you've been won over by their quiet, glinting virtuosity" The Times "An investigation into the nature of shared human experience ... it does what any good novel should - it unsettles, it moves, and it forces us to question who we are" Sunday Times "These stories are delicate, persuasive expressions of one of the melancholies of ageing - the sorry realisation that your life has after all not been as distinctive as it felt at the time, a realisation perhaps best met by the hope that the very communality of life can yet be treasured." Evening Standard "Critics often underestimate Faulks's versatility: his protean restlessness, half disguised by mainstream bestsellerdom ... All these 'possible' lives, as they echo and overlap like Anya's own motifs, add up (I suspect) to a portrait of the artist as he approaches 60" Independent
