Amazon.de

Sylvia Brownrigg's Pages for You is the story of a sentimental, sensual education, a love affair between a student and a teacher--all blushes, kisses, books and poetry. Flannery is just 17 and a first-year student at an American university; Anne, a lecturer, is 28: "wise, well-travelled, sophisticated". Flannery sees this red-haired, red-lipped goddess drinking coffee in a diner, wearing "pointed, pretty, argumentative boots", and is immediately smitten. Her dreams begin to taunt her with a "bawdy vividness", and much to her surprise the dreams become a reality, when Anne returns her affections. The story is beautifully paced, in small, concise chapters, each capturing a moment in an intense emotional experience. The prose is lyrical and a little gauche, mirroring Flannery's youth and her enthusiasm for literature--she is a poet in the making, and her heartfelt narration of her own story reflects that. If Desdemona loved Othello partly for his stories, than Flannery loves Anne partly for the content of her bookshelves. The novel is lush with sensation and impression; a recognition of the physical passion that the two women share:

If doubt had smouldered in Anne at first, the sex extinguished it ... Her questions were silenced by their pleasure calls, and the smoothness and the fluidity of their limbs together calmed her.
The novel is intimate and romantic, vivid as the "passionate hot fall of the autumn leaves with their brilliant reds, yellows and golds". --Eithne Farry -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

'Like Turgenev or Katherine Mansfield, Sylvia Brownrigg understands that the inexperienced lover is a detective who doesn't know which clues matter... mesmerising' Helen Dunmore, The Times 'Exuberant and wistful' Times Literary Supplement 'A candid, fresh and vivid novel' The Sunday Telegraph

Es ist sehr lange her, daß ein Buch so geschrieben worden ist, daß es nur müdigkeitsbedingt zu Leseunterbrechung kam. Die Autorin ist eine der wenigen Menschen, die derzeit Bücher schreiben, die es versteht sich gut auszudrücken, schöne Sätze zu schreiben ohne sich nervtötend in unnötigen Details zu verleiren und die Geschichte so rassant zu schildern, daß es unmöglich ist, das Buch vorzeitig weg zu legen.In die unterschiedlichen Gefühlslagen der Hauptfigur wird der Leser mit hineingezogen und wahrlich in den Bann geschlagen. Daß das Ende vorausgenommen wird und sich der Leser ggf. nicht mehr im Alter der Hauptfigur befindet, tut diesem Lesevergnügen keinerlei Abbruch. Diese Geschichte lies mich mehrere Wochen nicht los, trotz hektischen und aufreibenden Arbeitsalltag.

HASH(0x99823c54) von 5 Sternen Pages for Us 24. Juni 2001
Von Daniel Olivas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In beautiful, short and evocative chapters, Brownrigg tells the story of Flannery, a first-year college student, who falls in love with Anne, a teaching assistant a decade her senior. The passion between these two women is honestly and powerfully drawn by the author. I was a little concerned about the age difference between the two as well as the fact that Anne could be abusing her power with an undergraduate. Once I got over these hurdles (and we shouldn't ignore them...what if Anne were a Walter?), I fell under the spell of their love and Flannery's not-so-surprising heartbreak. This is a well-crafted, haunting book that will conjur up vivid memories of one's first encounter with passionate love.

HASH(0x99828228) von 5 Sternen Lukewarm 17. Mai 2001
Von Lesbian Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
... I expected more. Almost no one is calling this book a "romance," perhaps to keep it from being discounted as a mere genre effort, but it is basically a romance, and not a particularly inspired one at that.
As a novel of young infatuation and love, of sexual and intellectual awakening, it succeeds. Brownrigg's characterization of Flannery plays with sincerity--but there was nothing particularly profound. I felt I had read this story before and I took away nothing new.
As a coming out novel with an exploration of sexual identity it plays quite poorly compared to those much maligned "romance" novels. Frankly, the lesbian romance writers are delivering these complicated themes with power and passion that Brownrigg doesn't come close to. Even the quoted section on this page reminded me of a similar scene by a lesbian romance writer where a young woman watches a much older woman she yearns after ironing clothes. Every time I see an iron I remember the writer's evocation of the older woman's hands smoothing and caressing the fabric. Brownrigg's description of the way Anne's lips are touching the coffee gives me nothing nearly that evocative and I doubt I'll remember it months from now, let alone years.
This novel isn't strong enough to stand up to its hype and therefore disappointed me. It's an enjoyable read, but not a highly diverting one, sometimes thought-provoking, but when I was done I promptly forgot most of it. When a novel really works for me I'll think about it for days, recall scenes vividly, and wish it had never ended. Pages for You didn't do that for me. It left me lukewarm at best.

HASH(0x998257d4) von 5 Sternen A tour of the heart for women AND men 7. April 2001
Von Reads Voraciously - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The striking cover drew me in - yes judge it by the cover -- and the prose kept me there. No, more than the prose, the insight to the shape and nuance of love. I felt present in this story so that the words dropped away and I was with these two lovers: laughing, playing, loving, learning, fearing. As a male reader, the theme is universal (and hotly revelatory, I must say, too). Two women, yes, but more like a younger and a wiser, though sometimes the wiser and the older. Brownrigg finds these moments and holds them, like catching light and letting us see the impulse before releasing it. The format is PAGE by PAGE -- a whole emotional imprint within the discipline of a page. "Pages for You" is delicious and compelling. I stretched out in bed and read it through. Wrung out a bit, but the story and vivid images are in my dreams. Dare I say it?: a masterpiece, a book unlike any I've read. Brownrigg in her other books writes bravely and imaginatively, with a confident and witty voice. I think this book will thrive. PFY will certainly keep many readers warm...

HASH(0x9982b3fc) von 5 Sternen A glorious exultation of love 25. September 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Flannery is a college freshman, new to the East Coast, to college, to the intense attraction she feels to an older woman. When she encounters the woman (Anne) in one of her classes, Flannery spins out of control, and ultimately cannot escape the power of the mutual attraction when Anne and Flannery meet a few weeks later. The two embark on a beautiful affair filled with poetic bliss and patient devourings. As the months pass, Flannery notices a space within Anne that she cannot touch, and finding out what fills that space dissolves the glamour of their love. And yet what they gave each other lingers. Brownrigg's delicious tale is fully akin to such lesbian classics as Violette Leduc's "Thérèse and Isabelle" and Dorothy Bussy's "Olivia" (I could certainly name others). It is without a doubt a glorious exultation of love that will leave the reader luxuriously heavy with love.

HASH(0x9982b168) von 5 Sternen Mediocre at best 15. Juni 2012
Von RugbyGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read some good reviews on here so I figured I'd give this book a read. It's an easy read, I zipped it through in 1 night. It jumps right in, the romance begins within the first few pages and 1/4 of the book is character development and development of the relationship. 1/2 of the book is just repetitive lust. It was exciting at first, but it became the same thing over and over for 100pgs or so. I began to get very bored with the exhaustive redundancy. The last bit of the book, well, I won't spoil it. It's not the best book I've read, it's not the worst either. If you're looking for erotica, it's in this book for sure, but honestly I just couldn't wait to be through with it and was disappointed by the ending. I was essentially dis appointed by the whole book. Give it a read though, it may be your cup of tea. I think it needs a lot of work to be a full, complete, enthralling, erotic piece.
