Deftly weaving from one end of life to another – from ageing parents to newborn babies, from a young girl’s coming-of-age to an old woman’s unexpected delivery of a strange new second youth, from mystery and wonder at a life at its close or at a future waiting to unfold, Nicole Krauss’s stories illuminate the moments in the lives of women in which the forces of sex, power and violence collide. Beautiful, taut and dark, spinning across the world, from Switzerland, Japan and New York to Tel Aviv, Los Angeles and South America, To Be a Man fearlessly delves into questions of masculinity and violence, regret and regeneration, control and desire. ‘How much do we really know ourselves and each other? These questions linger long after the final pages of this supremely intelligent collection’ Aminatta Forna, Guardian
