Product Details


“Jim Crace writes with great flair and inimitable imagination . . . The Melody is a lyrical and tender meditation on marital love and loss that further secures his position as one of Britain’s most distinctive and accomplished novelists.”
—Financial Times
The Melody takes its place among Crace’s finest novels . . . Both grippingly symbolic and intensely real; it deepens and accrues in rhythmic prose that might itself be the melody of the title.”
—The Guardian
“[A] seductively atmospheric novel, suffused as it is with archetypes and the stuff of dreams . . . It’s an elegy, too—for lost love, youth and talent—and deeply moving.”
—Daily Mail
“Like Kazuo Ishiguro, Crace has a gift for creating specific, vividly imagined worlds which nevertheless exist outside the boundaries of traditional realism . . . That ‘here’ is never defined makes Crace’s haunting story more immediate, not less . . . Absolutely mesmerizing.”
—New Statesman
“Hypnotic and powerful . . . Enchanting and disconcerting . . . It offers a substantial rebuff to the idea, frequently remarked upon, that the novel in general, and the English novel in particular, has less and less to offer the modern reader.”
—The Irish Times
