    Marie Chaix, author of The Laurels of Lake Constance, and f ted author in France, hits a thirteen year writer s block that she works through by writing this non chronological reflective memoir thing about her past and present Told in diary fragments and short impressionistic chapters, she is overly precious and grandmotherly when writing about her family, but cutting and clear eyed when looking back at her literary career, and solving her present block problem Translated by her husband Harry M Marie Chaix, author of The Laurels of Lake Constance, and f ted author in France, hits a thirteen year writer s block that she works through by writing this non chronological reflective memoir thing about her past and present Told in diary fragments and short impressionistic chapters, she is overly precious and grandmotherly when writing about her family, but cutting and clear eyed when looking back at her literary career, and solving her present block problem Translated by her husband Harry Mathews, referred to as Harry throughout, who had to translate her peculiar takes on her past relationships and partners, and the occasional affectionate digs at this personality A charming but inessential and overly personal book, probably for fans of Chaix and her work only a good palate whetter for anyone else

    A lovely little novel I found this book a little difficult to get into, but perhaps that s understandable as the author waited so many years to write it It very much felt as if I were reading a stream of consciousness narrative, and certainly in a good way At times reminiscent, slightly , of Atwood, Chaix s third book is a thoughtful look at womanhood, aging and relationships, but not in a sappy or overly dramatic way I would recommend this book.

    A compilation of thoughts, conveyances and idolatry that never quite matches the intimate nuances or sincerely anguished love of her earlier work, Silences, or a Woman s Life.
