Recent Comments "The Paper Anniversary"
4.5, with a disclaimer: I used to recommend this book to everyone I know as my all-time favorite, and I was usually disappointed by their lukewarm reactions. I still think Wickersham is an amazing writer and I re-read the book regularly, but now I recognize that my feelings for the book have more to do with they way I relate to it (and how that's changed over the years) than for its literary merits. For what it's worth
the hospital's book selection was exclusively composed of little-known novels written by white people at least 25 years ago
I have a real weakness for books that have a marriage as a central character, so it's no surprise that I loved this one. The first 50 pages, maybe 100, were a near-constant cringe: Had there ever been two people less well suited to each other? The slow evolution of Jack and Maisie, the ways they grew and changed together and apart, was exquisite and excruciating in nearly equal measure At the end I closed the cover and thanked the Universe for Joan Wickersham's talent.
Story of a troubled marriage. Well written.
I picked up this book after loving the author's recent The News From Spain. She is a wonderful writer, but I couldn't get into this train wreck.
Read this on a camping trip--maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much?
A surprise read; found i became more interested as the book went on; now am reading everything by Joan Wickersham
