Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A marvelous chronicle of Breton lives and life, seen largely through the eyes of a child grown old, remembering how it used to be, in the years between the two world wars. The memoirs are magnificent. . . . The affectionate and touching portraits are not just of one family. . . . but of a whole people. . . . Like that faintly sweet, strong apple liqueur, this book should be savored slowly-set aside and picked up again, chapters read and re-read.-Neil Pickett, The New RepublicA rich and moving memoir. . . . We can see why this book won acclaim and a prize in France; it should win our hearts here too.-Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles TimesA marvelous book.-Audrey C. Foote, Washington Post Book WorldA landmark in the art of storytelling. Read it aloud; some passages will bring a catch to your voice. The superb translation by June Guicharnaud echoes the rhythms and tones of spoken language.-Gloria Levitas, The New York Times Book ReviewThe Horse of Pride is solid, detailed, and satisfying, like Breton crochet lace. . . . It speaks to the heart. That is the language beyond language.-Naomi Bliven, The New YorkerA book lovely in every respect; a jewel.-Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal
