- Kurzbeschreibung<p>Michael Cunningham's stunning new novel begins with a vision: Barrett Meeks, no longer young, heart-broken yet again, is walking through Central Park when he is suddenly and inexplicably inspired to look up at the sky. And in the sky is something strange: a pale, translucent light, "a swatch of veil," "a true manifestation of the night sky." It's November, 2004, and in the not-quite gentrified Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, Beth is dying of colon cancer. Beth is engaged to Barrett's brother Tyler, and the three have cobbled together a more or less happy home. Tyler, a struggling musician with a drug problem he is always just on the verge of kicking, is trying and failing to write a wedding song for his wife-to-be. As Barrett, haunted by the light, turns unexpectedly to religion and Tyler grows increasingly powerless in the face of his addiction, Beth tries simply to make it through each day. In this luminous novel, Cunningham follows the Meeks brothers as each turns down a decidedly different path in a hungry search for transcendence. In subtle, limpid prose, he demonstrates a profound compassion for these conflicted characters, and a singular understanding of what lies at the very depths of the human soul. The Snow Queen, melancholy, beautiful, and heartbreaking, proves once again that Cunningham is one of the finest American novelists of this generation.<BR></p>
