Jane Hamilton:
Disobedience - hardcover

ISBN: 0385601905

[SR: 2893582], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780385601900], Doubleday, Doubleday, Book, [PU: Doubleday], Doubleday, A wayward wife, an oedipally obsessed e-mail snoop, a pint-sized Civil War re-enactor (oops, make that living historian) and a cheerfully oblivious cuckold comprise the Shaws of Chicago, the decidedly quirky characters of Jane Hamilton's fourth novel, Disobedience. An unlikely family to fall prey to the vagaries of modern life, the Shaws are consumed with clog dancing, early music and the War Between the States. They do possess a computer, however, and when 17-year-old Henry stumbles into his mother's e-mail account and epistolary evidence of her affair with a Ukrainian violinist, he becomes consumed with this glimpse into her life as a woman, not simply a mother.To picture my mother a lover, I had at first to break her in my mind's eye, hold her over my knee, like a stick, bust her in two. When that was done, when I had changed her like that, I could see her in a different way. I could put her through the motions like a jointed puppet, all dancy in the limbs, loose, nothing to hold her up but me.While his mother (whom he refers to variously as Mrs Shaw, Beth or by her e-mail sobriquet, Liza38), dallies with her pen pal, whom she calls "the companion of my body, the guest of my heart", Henry experiences his own sexual awakening, his 13-year-old sister, Elvira, retreats into gender-bending historical fantasy, and their father remains determinedly absorbed in pedagogical responsibilities.Ironically (and not completely convincingly) narrated by an adult Henry, Disobedience has a rollicking tone somewhat at odds with the sombre prospects that loom for this family. A very worldly teenager in some ways, despite the hippie wholesomeness of his family, Henry tells his tale in abundant, almost flowery prose, imagining his mother's private life with elegiac fervour. As in her earlier A Map of the World, Jane Hamilton writes with affection and insight about the darker side of apparently ordinary Midwestern folks. --Victoria Jenkins, 276348, Psychology & Psychiatry, 496516, Applied Psychology, 276355, Cognition & Cognitive Psychology, 276371, Experimental Psychology, 496512, History & Philosophy, 276397, Methodology, 276394, Neuropsychology, 276388, Pathological Psychology, 496510, Popular Psychology, 270948, Psychiatry, 276377, Reference, 496514, Schools of Thought, 496518, Social & Developmental Psychology, 496522, Specific Topics, 74, Health, Family & Lifestyle, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
