The Folded World - Livres de poche

2007, ISBN: 9780812978544

ID: 534675535

Other Press, 2007. Other Press 2007 A D V A N C E R E A D E R' S Edition New/ SOFTCOVER. Prerelease version. From Gaige follows up on the 2006 National Foundation "5 Under 35" selection O My Darling with a measured account of a mildly troubled marriage and the hurdles faced by well-meaning social caseworkers. Gorgeous and dark-haired Alice Bussard, the 22-year-old daughter of a librarian, leaves "shabby" hometown Gloucester, Mass., to find bigger and better in a nearby (and unnamed) city. What she finds, however, is a job as a dentist's receptionist and the attention of 25-year-old, big-eared Midwestern transplant Charlie Shade, who is finishing his master's in social work. Before long, they're married and Charlie's found an underpaid and overworked job. They have twins, and Charlie's dedication to his work--and two patients, Hal Kramer and Opal Ludlow, specifically--sparks domestic tension (Alice is predictably tempted by another man), professional trouble and physical danger. Alice's mother comes to help with the kids, but ends up sharing with Alice the truth Alice would rather not hear about the father she never knew. Gaige's sophomore effort is polished and competent, with measured doses of dry humor leavening overwrought prose . Details about the mechanisms of the social work system are convincing, as is Gaige's portrayal of a young marriage on the rocks, but the narrative may be too tidy for some. (May) ¬ Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. ReviewAn idyllic marriage is tested in this idiosyncratic examination of how the experience of love, its absence and its presence, can shape lives.Gaige was honored as one of the National Foundation's "5 [exceptional authors] under 35" for her debut, O My Darling (2005). Her second time around again showcases a gift for capturing the simultaneous proximity and distance in a relation. But this darker story connects the romance of coupledom to the territory of madness. The lovers, Alice and Charlie, are both the products of their upbringings: she, the bookish daughter of a disappointed single mother; he, the likable, talented golden child of "wonderful, clear presences." Charlie's ambition - to be "good" - leads him to a career in social work, but his innocent impulses cause problems in his charmed life, which has been further graced by the birth of twin girls. Her husband's staying at work late leaves Alice lonely and mistrustful, while overstepping professional boundaries imperils both Charlie's clients and his career. Mania stalks the characters in many forms, some abstract, others tangible. The sense of threat that hangs over the proceedings is fed by Charlie's grandmother's premonition of violence, yet in a gathering whirlwind of a conclusion, the author dodges expectations, while reaching grandly for a multiple vision of love and restoration.Gaige's off-beat orientation, wit and piercing insights stand up to her first novel, this time in a more sober and less tidy narrative that offers greater breadth in exchange for sweetness. (Kirkus Reviews) Exquisitely written. -- Entertainment Weekly: EW Pick, Jennifer Reese Gorgeous prose...intriguing and captivating....A beautiful story wonderfully told. Highly recommended. -- , Eleanor Bader [Gaige] again showcases a gift for capturing the simultaneous proximity and distance in a relation...the author dodges expectations. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review.
