Description :  «Lydia está muerta. Pero esto aún no lo saben.» Así empieza este impresionante <i>thriller</i>, un inaudito ejercicio literario sobre lo que hay detrás de un crimen. Son los años setenta en una tranquila ciudad de Ohio donde todo el mundo se conoce. Y los primeros pasos: una joven desaparecida, un lago cercano a su casa y ese chico de mala fama con el que se veía. En este territorio familiar, Celeste Ng desarrolla una historia que, como ha dicho <i>The New York Times</i>, jamás habíamos visto hasta ahora en la literatura norteamericana. <i>Todo lo que no te conté</i> trata de la familia Lee, de las relaciones entre el matrimonio, sus problemas para integrarse y de todo lo que esperan de Lydia, que ha heredado los ojos azules de su madre y los rasgos chinos de su padre. Y de lo caro que se paga ser la hija predilecta. Esta novela ha sido en 2014 Bestseller y Notable Book de The New York Times, Mejor Libro de Amazon, Mejor Libro de Ficción de Entertainenent Weekly y Booklist, Mejor Libro de Time Out New York, y Mejor Libro de la National Public Radio, entre otros reconocimientos.

6 Tout ce qu'on ne s'est jamais dit

Author : Celeste Ng
Genre :  Mysteries & Thrillers  Books 
Price :  $15.99
Release Date :  2016-03-03
Description :  <b>Connaissez-vous vraiment vos proches ?</b> <br />Lydia Lee, seize ans, est morte. Mais sa famille l'ignore encore... <br /><br /> Élève modèle, ses parents ont placé en elle tous leurs espoirs. Sa mère, Marylin, femme au foyer, rêve que sa fille fasse les études de médecine qu'elle n'a pas pu accomplir. Son père, James, professeur d'université d'origine chinoise, a tant souffert de sa différence qu'il a hâte de la retrouver parfaitement intégrée sur le campus. <br /><br /> Mais le corps de Lydia gît au fond d'un lac. <br /><br /> Accident, meurtre ou suicide ? Lorsque l'adolescente est retrouvée, la famille Lee, en apparence si soudée, va devoir affronter ses secrets les mieux gardés. Des secrets si longtemps enfouis qu'au fil du temps ils ont imperceptiblement éloigné ses membres, creusant des failles qui ne pourront sans doute jamais être comblées. <br /><br /> Bien sûr, T <i>out ce qu'on ne s'est jamais dit</i> distille un suspense d'une rare efficacité. Mais ce livre qu'on garde en soi très longtemps est bien plus que cela. Celeste Ng aborde la violence de la dynamique familiale, les difficultés de communication, le malaise adolescent, avec une intensité exceptionnelle qui évoque l'univers de Laura Kasischke. En distinguant cette œuvre envoûtante comme l'un des meilleurs romans de l'année, les critiques anglo-saxons ont salué la naissance d'un écrivain majeur et fait le succès du livre, vendu à plus d'un million d'exemplaires.

7 Quello che non ti ho mai detto

Author : Celeste Ng
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $8.99
Release Date :  2015-08-27
Description :  Miglior libro dell'anno per "The New York Times review of Books"e "The Huffington Post"<br /><br />«Celeste Ng racconta una storia più grande di qualunque movente possa avere un crimine... Ne emerge il ritratto di una famiglia in lotta per veder riconosciuto il suo posto nella storia.»<br />The New York Times Book Review<br /><br />«Un esordio di grande potenza, una scrittura brillante e precisa: Ng strega il lettore fin dalla prima pagina con il mistero della morte di Lydia.»<br />The Huffington Post<br /><br />È una scena che abbiamo visto spesso al cinema e nelle serie TV: la madre apre la porta della camera della figlia e la trova vuota, il letto intatto. Si teme subito il peggio. Si chiede agli amici, ai vicini, poi si chiama la polizia. La sedicenne Lydia Lee viene ritrovata morta, annegata nel lago vicino a casa: è stata uccisa? E da chi? Oppure si è trattato di un incidente? Perché è uscita di notte? Tutte domande che continuano a tenere il lettore con il fiato sospeso, come in un romanzo giallo. Ma presto altre domande si insinuano nella sua mente, molto meno esplicite ma altrettanto inquietanti. Quello che rende eccezionale questa storia, e ne spiega l’enorme successo negli Stati Uniti e in Gran Bretagna, è il talento dell’esordiente Celeste Ng nel «dire» e «non dire», nello svelare senza inutile enfasi le radici profonde di una tragedia famigliare solo in apparenza ordinaria.

10 Tudo o que nunca contei

Author : Celeste Ng
Genre :  Mysteries & Thrillers  Books 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2017-03-16
Description :  Na manhã de um dia de primavera de 1977, Lydia Lee não aparece para tomar café. Mais tarde, seu corpo é encontrado em um lago de uma cidade em que ela e sua família sino-americana nunca se adaptaram muito bem.<br /> Quem ou o que fez com que Lydia — uma estudante promissora de 16 anos, adorada pelos pais e que com frequência podia ser ouvida conversando alegremente ao telefone — fugisse de casa e se aventurasse em um bote tarde da noite, mesmo tendo pavor de água e sem saber nadar? À medida que a polícia tenta desvendar o caso do desaparecimento, os familiares de Lydia descobrem que mal a conheciam. E a resposta surpreendente também está muito abaixo da superfície.<br /> Conforme analisa e expõe os segredos da família Lee — os sonhos que deram lugar às decepções, as inseguranças omitidas, as traições e os arrependimentos —, Celeste Ng desenvolve um romance sobre as diversas formas com que pais, filhos e irmãos podem falhar em compreender uns aos outros e talvez até a si mesmos. Uma uma observação precisa e dolorosa do fardo que as expectativas da família representam e da necessidade de pertencimento. Um romance que explora isolamento, sucesso, questões de raça, gênero, família e identidade e permanece com o leitor bem depois de virada a última página.
