Published for the first time in English, the sweeping debut novel set in bohemian Paris, by the author of international bestseller The Eighth Life. In 1953, a teenage girl, Jeanne Sar, jumps in front of a train at the Gare du Nord station. She leaves behind writings that to some are unreadable, but to others tell universal, unspoken truths about the lives and struggles of women. When published in the 1970s, her work triggers a rash of copycat suicides. It is hastily withdrawn from sale and eventually forgotten about. Then, in 2004, two women from opposite corners of the globe Amsterdam and Sydney rediscover Jeanne Sars book and set out to discover who the author was and what happened to her. Women across the ages have attached their own stories to Sars, often with devastating results, but the truth about her may be even stranger than the fictions they have invented.

Recensioner i media

Haratischvili's lyrical prose and mastery of tone shine Her mosaic of broken souls and elusive mystery offer many rewards for patient readers, culminating in a provocative statement on art's capacity to both shatter and redeem. -- Chris Reed * NZ Booklovers * You can see in this novel the fledgling novelist testing the reader and I can see her magnificent book Eighth Life emerging from the embers of Juja. -- Rosalind Ephram * Burway Books * Juja uses its constituent narratives to explore the various degrees of intensity with which humanity can interact with art, as well as the many reasons we might seek solace in the fictional lives of others. Haratischvili also explores the enduring quality of myth, the nature of creativity, and the roots of conspiracy theories and apocryphal narratives about both authors and their creations. * Words Without Borders * Juja by Nino Haratischvili is a darkly beautiful exploration of art, tragedy, mental illness, and personal responsibility. The multiple characters, perspectives, and time periods make it a multi-narrative tapestry, winding and weaving, full of echoes and hallucinations, self-destruction, and revelation. * Driftless Area Review * Praise for The Eighth Life: Something rather extraordinary happened. The world fell away and I fell, wholly, happily, into the book ... My breath caught in my throat, tears nestled in my lashes ... devastatingly brilliant. -- Wendell Steavenson * The New York Times Book Review * Praise for The Eighth Life: The Eighth Life is a lavish banquet of family stories that can, for all their sorrows, be devoured with gluttonous delight. Nino Haratischvilis characters come to exuberant life. Her huge novel shows a double face, its crushing pain and loss nonetheless conveyed with an artful storytellers sheer joy in her craft. -- Boyd Tonkin * The Financial Times * Praise for The Eighth Life: A harrowing, heartening, and utterly engrossing epic novel astonishing A subtle and compelling translation by Charlotte Collins and Ruth Martin should make this as great a literary phenomenon in English as it has been in German. -- Maya Jaggi * The Guardian * Praise for My Soul Twin: A passionate novel. -- Matthew Janney * The Guardian * Praise for My Soul Twin: The novels sexual voltage buoys you through its twists and turns. -- Anthony Cummins * The Observer *
