ISBN
9780312243029
A daring, deeply affecting third novel by the author of A Home at the End of the World and Flesh and Blood. In The Hours, Michael Cunningham, widely praised as one of the most gifted writers of his generation, draws inventively on the life and work of Virginia Woolf to tell the story of a group of contemporary characters struggling with the conflicting claims of love and inheritance, hope and despair. The narrative of Woolf's last days before her suicide early in World War II counterpoints the fictional stories of Samuel, a famous poet whose life has been shadowed by his talented and troubled mother, and his lifelong friend Clarissa, who strives to forge a balanced and rewarding life in spite of the demands of friends, lovers, and family. Passionate, profound, and deeply moving, this is Cunningham's most remarkable achievement to date.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Michael CunninghamPublisher: Picador USAPublished: 01/15/2000ISBN: 9780312243029Pages: 230Weight: 0.51lbsSize: 8.34h x 5.54w x 0.68dAward: Boston Book Review - NomineeAward: Book Sense Book of the Year Award - NomineeAward: Pulitzer Prize - WinnerAward: International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award - NomineeReview Citations: Publishers Weekly Best Books 01/01/1998 pg. 40Entertainment Weekly 01/14/2000 pg. 69New York Times 01/23/2000 pg. 32Entertainment Weekly 05/25/2001 pg. 74Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 31227 / HoursReading Level: 6.6 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 9
