Women in the Grove: Stories - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780807083857

Paula Peterson's memoir, Penitent, with Roses, was an unflinching account of her life as a woman and mother after being diagnosed as HIV positive. All the stories in this striking first collection of short fiction feature female heroines living with HIV infection. Shot through with humor, warmth, and insight, a collection that has already received extraordinary advance praise, Peterson's stories succeed in bringing us into a radically new understanding of life with AIDS.Lucinda, of 'A Miracle,' is visited by a red-haired man in a pinstriped suit who turns out to be God— somewhat shy and insecure, but the only savior she's likely to encounter. Russian émigré Olga, 'The Woman in the Long Green Coat,' bewitches her doctor by inhabiting his dreams and awakening his long-dormant imagination. Cherry physically battles the ghost of her ex-boyfriend, Duane, which appears in her house every night to torment her. 'The Affecteds and the Infecteds' are teenagers who live with AIDS and find adolescence complicated by their proximity to illness and death. In the penultimate story of the nine collected here, a woman watches her son visiting an AIDS memorial park to sprinkle wildflowers on her name inscribed in the stones. Books Books ~~ Fiction~~ General Women-in-the-Grove~~Paula-W-Peterson Beacon (at)lt;i(at)gt;Women in the Grove(at)lt;/i(at)gt; offers nine surprising, impossible-to-put-down stories about lives filled with loneliness, love, humor, grace, and mortality. The women are black, white, immigrants, faculty wives; they are in rehab and in high school, and each is filled with the imperative to go on living. In story after story Peterson presents the humanity of each of her characters even as they are compelled to make impossible choices-sometimes disastrous ones-about how they will spend the rest of their days. Theirs is an entirely fresh and unexpected brand of heroism.

Paula Peterson's memoir, Penitent, with Roses, was an unflinching account of her life as a woman and mother after being diagnosed as HIV positive. All the stories in Women in the Grove feature women living with HIV infection. Shot through with humor, warmth, and insight, Peterson succeeds in bringing us to a radically new understanding of life with AIDS. "Paula W. Peterson's wonderful debut collection, Women in the Grove, is about wonder and sorrow and amazing grace." --Sandra Scofield, Dallas Morning News "It's been a long time since I read a collection as strong, stirring, and surprising as Women in the Grove. Each story is tied in some way to AIDS--but thrillingly the true adventure here is the strength of the human heart. Paula Peterson is a dazzling writer." --Marcie Hershman, author of Safe in America and Speak to Me: Grief, Love and What Endures " A] smart, confident collection." --Sven Birkerts, author of The Gutenberg Elegies: The Fate of Reading in an Electronic Age "Twenty years into the epidemic, a work with something truly new to say about AIDS; that's quite an achievement." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review Women in the Grove: Stories Peterson, Paula W., Beacon Press
