Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The author of A Stroke of Genius and Love's Mansion offers an intimate and loving portrait of his mother, her early life, her experiences during World War II, her love of the arts and sports, her witty observations on life, and her remarkable love.

From Library Journal:

Novelist West (The Tent of Orange Mist, LJ 8/95) most recently shared his tales of personal solicitude in A Stroke of Genius (LJ 11/1/94), depicting his affliction with and treatment for migraines and other illnesses. In his latest work of nonfiction, the elegant stylist mines childhood memories to create a charged, if bloodless, portrait of his first muse, his mother. A butcher's daughter who was forced to give up a promising career as a pianist, Mildred Noden West was a fierce, exacting mother who taught music to support her family in the small English mining town where they lived. West acknowledges that he is "packing words into the gap" in trying to write about her, since he is so close to his subject that he cannot convey who she was except in tight, allusive fragments-on her taste in classical music, her nimbleness with words, her "method," her "Mildredism." West has jealously excluded his father, the mere "sperm-bearer," and sister from his narrative, as together he and his mother traipse off hand in hand to the movies during the war while German bombs are dropping on London; together they uncover the "poetic in the barbaric." West's self-consciously Proustian narrative is tortuous and difficult and his vocabulary, as ever, gymnastic. For comprehensive literature collections.
