    In the first rank of the brilliant women writers, asserts the New York Times blurb, offensively Actually Bowen is in the first rank of the brilliant writers Her craftsmanship is exquisite, she is masterful at having her characters express the perfect emotion, and if there s a writer of adult novels who can write from a child s vantag...

    When I started this book, I wondered if I would make it to the end Everything seemed disjointed No one spoke or acted as real people spoke or acted at least not as I ve experienced them The children weren t really children the adultsnot sure what they were.Then I came to the middle section labeled The Past This section opened the book up for me, making the characters real, illuminating the author s choices for me even for the strange dialogue and monologue choices Everything else When I started this book, I wondered if I would make it to the end Everything seemed disjointed No one spoke or acted...

    I no longer remember what motivated me to read or rather listen to this novel, which is my first experience of Elizabeth Bowen s writing It s an odd work and I m not exactly sure what I think or how I feel about it What I m in no doubt about, though, is that I wish I d read the novel and not listened to it This has nothing to do with the writing and everything to do with the main narrator, Elizabeth Jasicki Her voices for a number of the characters were over fussy and mannered, her French I no longer remember what motivated me to read or rather listen to this novel, which is my first experience of Elizabeth Bowen s writing It s an odd work and I m not exactly sure what I think or how I feel about it What I m in no doubt about, though, is that I wish I d...
