General Note
Tytuł oryginału: The push.
General Note
Translation of: The push.
A tense, page-turning psychological drama about the making and breaking of a family, about a woman whose experience of motherhood is nothing at all what she hoped for--and everything she feared. Blythe Connor is determined that she will be the warm, comforting, supportive mother to her new baby Violet that she herself never had. But in the thick of motherhood's exhausting early days, Blythe becomes convinced that something is wrong with her daughter--Violet rejects her mother, screams uncontrollably, and becomes a disturbing, disruptive presence at her preschool. Or is it all in Blythe's head? Her husband, Fox, says she's imagining things. What he sees is an overwhelmed wife who can't cope with the day-to-day grind. The more Fox dismisses her fears, the more Blythe begins to question her own sanity, and the more we begin to question what Blythe is telling us about her life as well. Then their son Sam is born--and with him, Blythe has the natural, blissful connection she'd always imagined with her child. Even Violet seems to love her little brother. But when life as they know it is changed in an instant, the devastating fall-out forces Blythe to face the truth. Here, we see the making and breaking of a family in crystalline detail, and what it feels like when women are not believed. The Push is a tour de force you will read in a sitting, an utterly immersive page-turner that will challenge everything you think you know about motherhood, about our children, and about what happens behind the doors of even the most perfect-looking families.
Blythe Connor pragnie być dla swojej małej Violet czułą i troskliwą matką, jakiej sama nigdy nie miała. Ale w tym pierwszym, najbardziej intensywnym i wyczerpującym okresie macierzyństwa Blythe dochodzi do wniosku, że z jej córką jest coś nie tak - dziewczynka nie zachowuje się jak wiekszość dzieci. A może to tylko wyobrażnia? Jej mąż, Fox, uważa, że na pewno przywidzenia. Im bardziej Fox lekceważy jej obawy, tym bardziej Blythe wątpi, czy jest przy zdrowych zmysłach, a my zaczynamy zadawać sobie pytanie, czy jej opowieść o swoim życiu jest prawdziwa.
In Polish.
