Like Normal People - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 0618126929

ID: 2239283

Like Normal People is the story of Ella Rose and her family, a blue-collar clan living in Los Angeles. Ella is old and her mind is going. Ella's youngest daughter, Vivien, is exhausted and harried, full of concerns about her own family. Her oldest girl, Lena, is developmentally disabled and lives in a residential home called Panorama City. As the novel begins, Lena sets her room on fire and almost gets kicked out. When Ella drives over to try to resolve the situation, she takes her granddaughter with her, and while her back is turned Lena and the child take off. For a brief afternoon they are fugitives, riding the Los Angeles bus system, shoplifting--they call it "borrowing"--from drugstores, fantasizing about the house they want to live in on the edge of the sea. In her first novel, Karen E. Bender skillfully renders mood with a few salient details. Here Ella and her husband Lou are depicted in flashback, moving to Los Angeles as newlyweds: "They began armed with a crooked, raw arrogance. Unpracticed, Ella copied Lou. It made them sleepless, talkative. She, too, threw trash out the car window, and the rhythm of her speech began to match his." Yet her writing can also fall into short, laboring metaphors that never quite gel: "Ella was waiting to understand the emotion within her, for her heart was restless, trying hard to beat with a feeling that she did not yet understand." Like unskilled actors who disrupt a film, such rough sentences pull us away from the liv contemporary,family saga,fiction,genre fiction,literary,literature and fiction,mothers and children,women's fiction Literature & Fiction, Mariner Books

ISBN: 9780618126927

ID: 978061812692

A Los Angeles Times bestseller and one of the Washington Post''s best books of the year, LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE charts the lives of three richly textured characters whose irreducible idiosyncrasies, griefs, longings, and loves will surely expand our sense of what it means to be like normal people (Chicago Tribune). The story of this family revolves around an off-kilter center: Lena, who is forty-eight years old but mentally locked in childhood. Following Lena''s escape from her residentialhome with her troubled twelve-year-old niece and her widowed mother''s search for them, Karen Bender moves deftly between past and present, through three entire lifetimes in a single day, as each character searches for love and acceptance in a world where normalcy is elusive. Poignantly and brilliantly portrayed (TimeOut New York), LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE is a hilarious, heartbreaking, unforgettable family drama that resonates long after the last page is turned.
