Oonya Kempadoo:
Tide Running (Bluestreak) - Taschenbuch

2004, ISBN: 0807083739

[SR: 2998261], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780807083734], Beacon Press, Beacon Press, Book, [PU: Beacon Press], 2004-06-15, Beacon Press, The Caribbean island of Tobago is the setting for Oonya Kempadoo's second novel, Tide Running. The story's narrators are handsome, brooding Cliff, a reserved 20-year-old living in Plymouth, one of the roughest towns on the island, and Bella, a mixed-race woman who comes to live on Tobago with her English husband and young son. While Cliff and his brother Ossie live in unemployed boredom and poverty with their mother, sister and baby niece (fathers and responsible adult males do not figure here), Bella and Peter--a high-flying corporate lawyer--live in a David Hockney-inspired architect-designed home fit for a film star. Surprisingly, an unlikely friendship develops. Although innocent at first, with the brothers happy to hang out at the house watching videos, or on day trips to the island¹s beaches, something darker, and unsettling, begins to surface. Street-wise, cheeky Ossie takes a back seat as his quieter brother slowly lowers his guard. Before long, Bella finds herself drawn to Cliff's striking beauty, and a sexual tension, charged with excitement and danger, hangs in the steamy Tobagan air. Unwittingly, though, it seems that Bella has unleashed a dangerous undercurrent and can only watch, helpless, as the backwash gathers speed and events spiral towards the inevitable. Kempadoo has not only switched continents for Tide Running--her highly acclaimed debut Buxton Spice was set in Guyana--she has also changed tone, from the flowing exuberance of childhood sexual awakenings to an altogether more serious, troublesome tale of trust and responsibilities. If you can cut through the challenging Tobagan patois­-this is not a book to be rushed--Tide Running is an illuminating, if disturbing tale of modern-day Caribbean life and the repercussions of Western culture. --Carey Green, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 67221011, Action & Abenteuer, 67916011, Anthologien, 67220011, Buch zum Film, 67923011, Familiensagen, 67924011, Historisch, 67223011, Horror, 67926011, Krieg, 273042011, Medizin, 273043011, Metaphysisch, 67925011, Männerabenteuer, 67219011, Märchen, 67217011, Politisch, 55229011, Religion & Esoterik, 65642011, Schwul & Lesbisch, 1322750031, Seeabenteuer, 67218011, Sport, 67927011, Western, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

Tide Running - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9780807083734

ID: 3329190

Cliff and Ossi have grown up in Plymouth on the island of Tobago, their lives turning on the axis of small-town life. One day they watch the arrival of a couple and their child at a luxurious house overlooking the ocean. The couple invites Cliff into their home and lives, and in that cool "flim-style" house, the harsh, brittle life of urban Plymouth is kept briefly at bay, desires obscuring differences in class and race. But then things begin to go wrong--money vanishes, the couple's car disappears--and those differences are brought suddenly to light, raising unsettling questions about relationships, wealth, and responsibility. "Oonya Kempadoo's Tide Running is effective, beautiful, and haunting . . . and pulses with a distinctive Caribbean rhythm." --Glenville Lovell, Washington Post "With a finely tuned ear for the cadences of the Caribbean . . .. Kempadoo succeeds in turning an unsettling tale into an exploration of the global politics of desire." --The New Yorker "A vividly imagined tale] by this poetically gifted, politically incisive young Caribbean writer." --Elle magazine Tide Running Kempadoo, Oonya, Beacon Press (MA)
