Über diesen Titel
A zany, hilarious novel set amid the splendors and excesses of New Orleans
Blessed with acute powers of observation and the ability to remember everything, Eleanor Rushing's recollections and impressions are nevertheless often at odds with those of the people around her. When Maxim Walters, a distinguished Methodist minister, speaks passionately at the city council meeting and then sits next to Eleanor, she knows what it means. Soon she is boasting of her affair with Maxim, how he ignores his congregation and speaks only to her, how he invites her to join him on a business trip to Nashville, how they make love all night long.
But Maxim sees things a little differently. He is married and knows Eleanor only as a member of his church who always sits in the front row. He has no idea why she appears in Nashville when he is there, and there is certainly no love between them. Or so he says. But who is telling the truth?
Eleanor Rushing is a first-person narrative tour de force. At once highly entertaining and deeply moving, it is a memorable look at the willfulness of obsessive love, the caustic mix of money and leisure, and the power of memory to damage the soul.About the Author:
