HYDE by Daniel Levin(Edebi Roman)

Daniel Levine'in Hyde (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, May 2014) hakkında sizlerle harika haberleri paylaşmaktan mutluyum:

  *       Japonca yayın hakları  etkileyici  beş basamaklı bir rakama anlaşmayla Kadokawa'ya satıldı.
·          HYDE  bir New York Times Editors 'Choice  seçildi.
·          (Walter Kirn'ün ) Hyde ile ilgili tam bir incelemesi önümüzdeki ay New York Times Book Review'da çıkacak. Kirn'e göre HYDE bol kasvetli anlatımına, karamsar bir atmosfere rağmen, "ustaca revize edilmiş" ve "zevkli" . Anlatıcının durumu gerçekten dokunaklı.......

A fresh twist on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Levine’s novel is told through the eyes of Jekyll’s infamous alter-ego, Edward Hyde, known until now only as a being of pure evil. But here he appears in his human complexity—a crafty, sensuous, vulnerable creature, ravenous for experience. Yet there is a deeper reason why Jekyll brought Hyde into existence, an oblique and increasingly sinister reason that soon begins to threaten the stability of their precarious double life. Mr. Hyde’s vivid narrative fills in the gaps that riddle Stevenson’s mysterious tale: Dr. Jekyll’s ominous motives, his great and shadowy psychological career, and his harrowing childhood out of which Hyde emerged. It is the story of a Frankensteinian scientist driven by reckless ambition toward his inevitable self-destruction.

The novel is a pleasure…a worthy companion to its predecessor. It’s rich in gloomy, moody atmosphere (Levine’s London has a brutal steampunk quality), and its narrator’s plight is genuinely poignant.”—Walter Kirn in the New York Times

Levine’s evocation of Victorian England is marvelously authentic, and his skill at grounding his narrative in arresting descriptive images is masterful.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred review

“Levine’s masterful in his surrealistic observations of Hyde subsuming Jekyll…Cleverly imagined and sophisticated in execution…”—Kirkus

“Giving him flesh and humanity, Levine makes [Hyde] a kind of tragic hero and gives the original version an added dramatic and emotional dimension. A fascinating companion piece to a classic story.”—Booklist

“Florid, devious and ingenious, HYDE is a blazing triumph of the gothic imagination."
—Patrick McGrath, author of Constance

“This rich, allusive, erudite novel is a welcome reminder of what a tour de force really is.”
—David Leavitt, author of The Indian Clerk

“Prepare to be seduced.  Visceral prose, atmosphere you could choke on, characters who seem to be at your very shoulder."—Ronald Frame, author of Havisham

“Daniel Levine locates the strange beneath the familiar in this intricately imagined, meticulously executed debut.”—Jon Clinch, author of Finn

“. . . [a] knockout debut novel.”—Benjamin Percy, author of Red Moon and The Wilding

Daniel Levine received his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Florida and his B.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing from Brown University.
