book à My Name is Lucy Barton Í Elizabeth Strout

My Name is Lucy Bartonκαι τα πρώτα της συγγραφικά βήματα στη λογοτεχνική σκηνή της μητρόπολης τη δεκαετία του 1980 Ολόκληρη η ζωή της ξεδιπλώνεται μέσα από τη διαυγή και γεμάτη ανθρωπιά αφήγησή της φωτίζοντας τη σχέση μητέρας και κόρης μια σχέση φτιαγμένη από έλλειψη κατανόησης αδυναμία επικοινωνίας αλλά και βαθιά ταύτισηΤο Όνομά μου είναι Λούσυ Μπάρτον χαρακτηρίστηκε αριστούργημα από τη λογοτεχνική κριτική στις Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες Είναι ένα σπουδαίο σύγχρονο μυθιστόρημα για τη μοναξιά την επιθυμία και την αγάπη Το βιβλίο κέρδισε το βραβείο Malaparte το 20 This book I really can’t stop thinking about this book What at first felt like a simple uietly understated series of snapshots of a woman’s life has turned into a powerful novel that packs its punch through everything that is not spoken Beautifully expressed with sparse prose My Name is Lucy Barton left me breathless and I have to admit a bit teary by book’s end Lonely was the first flavor I had tasted in my life and it was always there hidden inside the crevices of my mouth reminding me Lucy Barton’s childhood in Amgash Illinois was burdened by poverty isolation abuse and a feeling of inferiority She escaped these hardships and cultivated a new life with a husband and two daughters in New York City in addition to a career in writing She is now sitting in a hospital bed following a surgical infection when her estranged mother appears at her bedside to keep her company during her recovery Mother and daughter sit in the shadow of the Chrysler building and chat about people and life back in Amgash It seems the Chrysler building with all its brilliant lights is a symbol of what Lucy has attained through her liberation of sorts At the same time perhaps the shadow it casts is a reminder of the darkness that still lurks within Lucy’s soul Lucy yearns to talk to her mother about her life now and perhaps extract a sign of approval for her achievements But she never demands it; never says ‘look at me and see how I’ve triumphed despite all’ She hungers to hear those three words that she has never heard spoken aloud by her mother 'I love you' Mother and daughter mostly speak of other people they knew back home avoiding the nitty gritty details of their own troubled lives and relationships We get snatches of what lies beneath the surface through Lucy’s inner reflections but never uite journey to the real core of the family’s dysfunction It’s hinted at however and one cannot help but feel the anguish underlying the young Lucy’s life as well as the sorrow that she may still carry but around which she has been able to adapt She is hopeful and thankful for small kindnesses I loved that about her Many of us have been saved many times by the kindness of strangers but after a while it sounds trite like a bumper sticker And that’s what makes me sad that a beautiful and true line comes to be used so often that it takes on the superficial sound of a bumper stickerI don’t want to reveal too much of this wonderful little book I will say that once again I found myself meditating about my own mother daughter relationships – that between me and my mother as well as the one between me and my daughter I thought about the memories of my own childhood some good some bad – fortunately nothing as traumatic or dysfunctional as was alluded to in this story I considered how those memories change over time and how they have shaped my own attitudes behaviors and bond with my own daughter This must be the way most of us maneuver through the world half knowing half not visited by memories that can’t possibly be true Is this how we adapt – either by forgetting the bad memories or dulling them until we can cope with them? Or is this simply a way of forgiving in order to move on with our own lives? Offering forgiveness is not easy but it is freeing and life giving and I think Lucy taught me a little bit about this priceless gift
