BeschreibungThe novel centers around a woman writing in a small room. As she writes, remembering a past relationship and anticipating a future one, the room becomes a repository for nostalgia, violence, and desire, a space in which writing and remembering become life-sustaining ceremonies. The narrator reflects on the power of love to both shelter and destroy. She meditates on the act of writing, specifically on writing as a woman, in a voice that goes against the grain of established, canonical voices.
PressestimmenMolloy's first novel is something special. Her narrator is a writer and her writing is therapy. Through the act of creating literature, she deals with the loves and pains of her life: father, mother, lovers and friends. It is a rare writer who can cloister her fiction in introspection and still keep up a pace that exercises a reader ...Molloy pulls this off.
