Eleanor Mallet:
The Notion of Family - hardcover

ISBN: 1882203577

[SR: 6131520], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781882203574], Orange Frazer Pr Inc, Orange Frazer Pr Inc, Book, [PU: Orange Frazer Pr Inc], Orange Frazer Pr Inc, In the household of Eleanor Mallet's book, The Notion of Family, resides the power of unconventional mystery. For in these unusual and animated essays, nothing is ever quite what it seems. In the bosom of family, for instance, a bookish boy playing the cello becomes a soccer goalkeeper. The heads-of-household--one a soft touch, the other a hard-liner--unsurp one another's positions. Are dishes merely receptacles, or do they have talismanic power? Such a mystery is a family! The reader plunges into a beguiling drama featuring a constellation of relatives including sons, sisters, and husband; old-world Bobbie; Aunt Izzie of the blueberry pies with crisscross crusts; the mother-in-law, Sarah, who loves Elvis; and Sarah's bookish Arthur, who keeps a bathtub mat by the front door. In this accelerated narrative are the mysteries of growing up, growing old, and growing together. "At one time," Ms. Mallet writes, "I had all the answers." But, she wisely decided, what endures is one's passion for the whole enterprise. Her fast-forward chronicle of the perils or progeny--and related hazards--encompasses the happiness and heartbreak that make up all families. But it does so deftly, so lovingly, and so concisely, it is as if the reader had been given a flawless and heartfelt summary of the wisest family novel ever written. Eleanor Mallet has written a beautiful, funny geographer's guide to the uncharted wilderness that is family. Her rich and glowing collection demonstrates that the besieged notion of family is--at least in this household--as strong and remarkable as ever., 2395, United States, 9681303011, American Revolution, 465246, Civil War, 9681307011, US Presidents, 2376, Historical, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 172763, Journalists, 2419, Professionals & Academics, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2445, Women, 2437, Specific Groups, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
