Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

A lyrical novel about family, love, loss, renewal, and changing generations follows a young woman's first encounter with her prospective mother-in-law, Mrs. Hornstien, and her realization, years later, as she meets her son's fiance+a7e, that she has become that same woman. 75,000 first printing.

Review:

Marty Fish is 17 years old when she meets her future mother-in-law, the awe-inspiring Mrs. Hornstien. Mrs. Hornstien lives in an enormous apartment in Ritterhouse Square, Philadelphia, complete with marble stairs and mahogany walls and a zodiac painted on the library ceiling. Heady stuff indeed for a young girl of Marty's humble background. In Mrs. Hornstien, Fredrica Wagman chronicles the relationships between Marty and her mother-in-law and Marty and her husband, Albert, from that first meeting in the Ritterhouse Square apartment to the engagement of Marty's own son 35 years later. It sounds like a pretty massive undertaking, but Wagman accomplishes it in under 120 pages.

The book might be slim, but it's certainly vocal. Everyone in Mrs. Hornstien seems to be shouting; scarcely a page passes without someone speaking in capital letters. This is especially true of Mrs. Hornstien, who seems to value DRIVE and AMBITION above all. One wishes she'd switch to emphatic italics from time to time. This is not a subtle book, but it is a heartfelt one. The message contained within it is obvious: trust love; let troubles strengthen, not break you. Mrs. Hornstien will fit nicely on the shelf next to anything by Robert Fulghum.
