The Piano. Coming from Scotland, Ada arrives at the 'the end of the world' accompanied by her daughter and her piano to begin a new life with Stewart - the husband who does not know - and whom she married by proxy. The inhospitable forests of 19th century New Zealand serve as background to one of the most beautiful and unique love stories published in the 1990s. Jane Campion (who also directed the film and which won some of the most prestigious film awards worldwide) and Kate Pullinger created in this book more than a twin of the film. It is a literary work perfectly autonomous from the film and one of the most disturbing contemporary novels. The story is about the passion of a mute woman - Ada - for whom the piano is both her voice and her body. An exciting book, which stands in the shadow of Emily Dickinson's poetry and the transforming atmosphere of the Bronte sisters' novels. O Piano. Vinda da Escócia, Ada chega ao << firm do mundo >> acompanhada pela filha e pelo seu piano, para começar uma nova vida com Stewart - o marido que não conhece - e com quem casou por procuração. A floresta inóspita da Nova Zelândia século 19 vai servir de fundo a uma das mais belas e singulares histórias de amor publicadas nos anos noventa. Jane Campion (também realizadora do filme que obteve os mais prestigiados galardões mundiais) e Kate Pullinger criaram, mais do que um texto gémeo do filme, uma obra literária perfeitamente autónoma e um dos mais pertubantes romances contemporâneos, onde a história de uma paixão é contada por uma mulher muda - Ada -, para quem o piano é a voz e o próprio corpo. Um livro empolgante, sobre o qual paira a sombra poética de Emily Dickinson e a atmosfera transfigurada dos romances das irmãs Brontë. 5.4"x8.6", 199 páginas (pages), Satisfação garantida (satisfaction guaranteed).
