In Brief: Short Takes on the Personal - Taschenbuch

2000, ISBN: 9780393319071

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 521896504

Harcourt, 1994. Harcourt 1994 First Edition NL with "A" Fine/Very Good++ DJ Unread. Minimal edgewear to bright jacket. From Sailing, grief and writer's block are among the weighty topics tackled by Conrad, author of the children's books Prairie Songs and Stonewords . Several years after her teenaged daughter's death, divorced writer Ellie Brinkley lives alone in her Long Island home, struggling to begin her second novel. Chimney sweep Max Turkel ("dressed in a black top hat and tails, and underneath, a Sting T-shirt") bursts in on Ellie's solitude, unblocks her chimney, takes her sailing in his boat (the Nemaste : "it's Sanskrit for 'the God within me beholds the God within you' ") and soon becomes her lover. Ellie's return to sailing and her steamy relation with the tantalizing chimney sweep play equal parts in loosing a torrent of recollections about her father, her ex-husband and her daughter. Before Ellie can get on with her novel and her life, she must confront the fairly predictable truths that lie behind these memories. Though the writing is often astute and moving, Ellie's first-person musings never quite achieve the momentum needed to sweep the reader away. 1994 In Conrad's first novel for adults (after Stonewords and other excellent children's books), Ellie Brinkley, author of an unexpectedly well-received first novel, has a bad case of writer's block. She meets Max Turkel, a free-spirited chimney sweep, who sells her his sailboat and warns her that he's not good at long-term relation. Their short-lived and passionate romance forces Ellie to remember the losses she's already suffered-the death of her hard-drinking, alternately abusive and charming father; the divorce from her alcoholic husband; and the separation from her daughter, Casey-and allows her to begin to write again. The best parts of this readable novel deal with Ellie's attempts to cope with Casey's increasingly hostile behavior (the scenes in Family Court ring painfully true). What is much less convincing is why Ellie is attracted to Max and why she continues to address her thoughts to her ex-husband. Although this isn't a necessary purchase, public libraries with large collections should consider.Nancy Pearl, Washington Ctr. for the Book, Seattle 1994. First Edition NL with "A". Hardcover. Fine/Very Good++ DJ., Harcourt, 1994, W. W. Norton & Company. 1999. Paperback. Very Good. A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. An exciting new anthology by the editors of the popular In Short, about which Publishers Weekly said: "Even readers skeptical of short-attention-span publishing will find these shorts addictive." In their previous collection Judith Kitchen and Mary Paumier Jones coined the term "short" for those creative nonfiction pieces -- literary rather than informational, and characteristically short -- that are attracting our finest writers. Now, with a more introspective focus, this new collection emphasizes the personal as "a way of seeing the world, of expressing an interior life. It is intimate without being maudlin, it is private without being secret." From Harriet Doerr's recollection of a halcyon time to Josephine Jacobsen's reverie on memory, In Brief offers vivid glimpses into the ways experience can be shaped in language that is fresh and inventive. The seventy-two authors here include the known -- John McPhee, Cythia Ozick, James Salter -- as well as remarkable new writers. Essays (all under 2000 words) range from Frank McCourt's search for his father in the pubs of Limerick to William Maxwell's thoughts about growing old; from Charles Baxter's early experience of reading to Brady Udall's confession as a liar. Patricia Hampl recalls meals at her grandmother's house, while Jane Brox contemplates the meaning of bread. In each piece, imagination becomes a way to explore reality. The real world we are fortunate enough to live in is revealed as endlessly rich and deep., W. W. Norton & Company, 1999
