Anmeldelser

«A masterly, meaningful tale from America.s divided past . This is a giant of a story.. Guardian»

«A sweeping, often spellbinding epic of cinematic storytelling that runs right up against the definition of masterpiece.. The Times»

«Dee Rees.s rich, absorbing story set in pre- and postwar Mississippi and based on Hillary Jordan.s novel is beautifully directed and performed.. Peter Bradshaw, Guardian»

«[Rees] arranges her symbols with a rich sense of cinematic and literary tradition.. Daily Telegraph»

«Mudbound is poised to break serious ground . what makes [Rees.s] ensemble movie remarkable . is that every character is so richly defined and rounded . A wonderfully assured blend of sweeping period melodrama and small, telling moments, it.s a world you want to spend more time inside.. Metro»

Om forfatteren

Hillary Jordan is the author of two novels: MUDBOUND (2008) and WHEN SHE WOKE (2011), as well as the digital short "Aftermirth" (2012).

MUDBOUND won the 2006 Bellwether Prize for fiction, founded by Barbara Kingsolver to recognize debut novels of social justice, and an Alex Award from the American Library Association. It was a 2013 World Book Night selection, and PASTE Magazine named it one of the Top Ten Debut Novels of the Decade. WHEN SHE WOKE was one of BookPage's Best Books of 2011, a Booklist Editor's Choice for Best Fiction of 2011 and a Lamda Award finalist. Both novels were long-listed for the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. They have been translated into 10 languages.

Hillary received her BA from Wellesley College in 1984 and her MFA from Columbia University in 2004. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
