Sobre l'autor

Penelope Lively has written over 18 books for children, and over 15 titles for adults, distinguishing herself on both levels. Among the awards she has received are the coveted Booker Prize for the adult novel "Moon Tiger" (1987) and the Carnegie Medal for the highly acclaimed juvenile work, "The mostra'n més Ghost of Thomas Kempe" (1973). In Lively's writing, for both adults and children, the recurrent theme is interpreting the past through exploring the function of memory. "My particular preoccupation as a writer is with memory. Both with memory in the historical sense and memory in the personal sense." Beginning her writing career in the early 1970's, Lively wrote exclusively for children for over a decade. Because children have limited memories, devices were used to explore their perceptions of the past, such as ghosts in "Uninvited Ghosts and Other Stories" (1985), and a sampler in "A Stitch in Time' (1976). Lively's first adult novel, "The Road to Lichfield" (1977) was the result of turning to an older audience when she felt inspiration running out. Her adult novels include "Passing On" (1995), the story of a mother's legacy to her children and 'Oleander, Jacarandi: A Childhood Perceived' (1994) which is a memoir of Lively's childhood. Penelope (Low) Lively, born March 17, 1933 in Cairo, Egypt, had a most unusual childhood. She grew up in Cairo with no formal education until age 12, when her family put her in boarding school in England. After earning a B.A. in history at Oxford in 1955, she married Jack Lively, a university professor, whom she calls her most useful critic. They have a son and a daughter, Adam and Josephine.

Moon Tiger és una novel·la deliciosa i sofisticada que narra la vida de la Claudia Hampton, una escriptora de divulgació històrica molt reconeguda, que ara jeu en un llit d’un hospital de Londres, sola i vella, a punt de morir. Els records encara brillen en la seva consciència cada vegada més fràgil, i s’imagina que està escrivint una història del món. En canvi, Moon Tiger és la seva, d’història, la d’una dona forta, freda, independent i de vegades difícil, per a la qual les relacions amb la família i els amics han estat complicades i tenses i que guarda un secret íntim i devastador.… (més)
