New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2018 - Amazon Editors' Top 100 of 2018
Rachel Cusk, the award-winning and critically acclaimed author of Outline and Transit, completes the transcendent literary trilogy with Kudos, a novel of unsettling power.
A woman writer visits a Europe in flux, where questions of personal and political identity are rising to the surface and the trauma of change is opening up new possibilities of loss and renewal. Within the rituals of literary culture, Faye finds the human story in disarray amid differing attitudes toward the public performance of the creative persona. She begins to identify among the people she meets a tension between truth and representation, a fissure that accrues great dramatic force as Kudos reaches a profound and beautiful climax.
In this conclusion to her groundbreaking trilogy, Cusk unflinchingly explores the nature of family and art, justice and love, and the ultimate value of suffering. She is without question one of our most important living writers.

À propos de l'auteur

A middle class writer goes to a literary festival and the book is just all about the people she meets and what they say . Problem is that what they say would be the equivalent of a 1 hour conversation.Everyone she meets ( and they are all the same type of person ...middle class ) start to tell her about aspects of their lives even the people who are supposed to be interviewing her . Some of the stories are interesting and very insightful but I think I prefer more of a plot than a series of very similar essays.
By this stage, what Cusk has achieved is something which is both intimate and personal, while also asking questions which are more universal: about marriage and its failures, about gender, about bringing up children. This is also feels the most engaged with the female artist of the three books: there is discussion about writing, about literature, about the publishing industry and the tension or balance between commercial fiction which sells and something more weighty.
Cusk is always readable and weaves her themes with deftness. Her humour, albeit sharp and snarky, is more on show here than I remember in the previous volumes.
So with an emphasis on change and progression, on what is left behind as life moves forward, this moves beyond Transit in the way it implies Faye does. Clever, engrossing - but impossible to be as radical as the first book in the trilogy which set out a new way of telling a story.
One bit of light relief was her TV interview. The interviewer thought she should come and live in his country and get a bit of a tan. She obviously had no high opinion of interviewers.
This was the first book I had read by this author and I may try another.
