From the bestselling author of THE ADVERSARY
Completely arresting. He [Carrre] has the talent...of showing us his foibles without demanding that we identify with them. * The Times * An exhilarating new work of autofiction... It's wonderful. It is Carrre's willingness to face his own flaws full in the face that makes his writing so striking, and - dare I say it - relatable. -- Cal Flyn * Literary Review * Yoga is the story of how a life can fray, tighten itself into a noose, unravel and, in the process, be built and braided into lines that make up a profound and moving work of art. -- Geoff Dyer A devastating portrait...[Carrre's] singular, ever-expanding work, in which one pain need never obscure another, in which truths and half-truths are held not in opposition but in delicate, precarious balance, is an answer in itself. -- Sam Byers * Guardian * I loved Emmanuel Carrre's Yoga... A useful manual for this era, where nothing seems connected but everything's related. -- Adam Thirlwell * Times Literary Supplement *Books of the Year* * Unlike any book I've ever read... Carrre is anything but ordinary as a talent, but his great and precious gift is to reveal his own mind in such a way that illuminates the infinity that belongs to every human person. -- Megan Nolan, author of ACTS OF DESPERATION [With] relentless clarity of thought and confessional honesty... Yoga is fascinating on the purpose of meditation... [an] extraordinarily compelling account. * Financial Times * Stunning...Yoga is a deeply moving reflection on the painful occupation that is living. * Elle * [Carrre's] skill in constructing a narrative from disparate materials is exceptional... [and] relentlessly interesting. * Observer * Impressive... reveals itself as a monumental book on the human condition. * L'Obs * How does one harmonise the yin and yang of a life broken in two? Yoga is the implacable tale of a writer lost in his kingdom. * L'Express * An immensely engaging, lively and exciting writer... [Yoga] is increasIngly hypnotic; lyrical, hypnotic and elegant. There is no doubt that a great intellect is at work, keen to explore the depths of his own troubled mind. * Big Issue * A tender, honest, intelligent portrait of the human condition. * Scotsman * Another book of bracing candour * White Review, *Books of the Year* * The most exciting living writer. -- Karl Ove Knausgaard
