Описание: Understanding Colum McCann chronicles the Irish-born writers journey to literary celebrity from his days as a teenage sportswriter for the Irish Press in the 1970s, through the publication of his award-winning first story, Tresses, in 1990, to his winning the 2009 National Book Award in fiction for the international bestseller Let the Great World Spin. In this first critical study of McCanns body of work, John Cusatis provides an introduction to McCanns life and career; an overview of his major themes, style, and influences; and close readings of his two short story collections and five novels.
Cusatis traces McCanns redefinition of the Irish novel, exploring the authors propensity for transcending aesthetic, cultural, ethnic, geographical, and social boundaries in his ascent from the status of Irish novelist to international novelist. In the process, this study illuminates the various incarnations of McCanns perennial subject: exile, both geographical and emotional. Cusatis also delineates how the influences of McCanns Irish upbringing, penchant for international travel, and exhaustive and eclectic reading of literature manifest themselves in his fiction. Close attention is given to McCanns stylistic trademarks, such as his poetic voice, use of Christian symbolism, Irish and classical mythology, intertextuality, multiple viewpoints, nonlinear plot structure, and the merger of what McCann deems factual truth and textual truth.
Understanding Colum McCann makes use of the existing body of published interviews, profiles, and critical articles, as well as a decade of correspondence between Cusatis and McCann. With international interest in McCann on the rise, this first full-length study of his career to date serves as an ideal point of entrance for students, scholars, and serious readers, and offers the biographical and critical foundation necessary for a deeper understanding of McCanns fiction.
