Coventry: Essays

From Rachel Cusk, her first collection of essays about motherhood, marriage, feminism, and artRachel Cusk redrew the boundaries of fiction with the Outline Trilogy, three "literary masterpieces" (The Washington Post) whose narrator, Faye, perceives the world with a glinting, unsparing intelligence while remaining opaque to the reader.

Coventry: Essays Reviews

  • Kasa Cotugno
    The best essays make you look at things differently. This collection, comprised of material heretofore published in the likes of Granta and The Guardian, consists of fine examples of why Rachel Cusk is in such demand as a writer and as an analyst of other writers. The first two sections concern essa...

    4,5I loved the first part Coventry: absolutely 5 stars! The rest was good and often excellent. Cusk is so analytical, precise, observant and clever. Definitely one of the best writers of this time!...

    It has been a long time since I wanted to read a book of essays. I’ve started with this collection, but then got into the swing of things and spent a few weeks reading just essays from different authors. I found it fascinating experience, in some ways, it is easier than reading a serious novel,...
