The Accidental Woman

I Maria di suadrarla da ogni lato e di spiarla con compagne di college corteggiatori mariti figli con tutto uello schieramento di esistenze che chiamiamo “gli altri” Gli altri ovvero una consistente parte della casualità Ma esiste un grimaldello capace di far saltare l’apparente freddezza esistenziale di Maria O tutto è destinato a finire com’è cominciato vale a dire “per caso” La risposta è nella narrazione nell’ironia nel gioco nel memorabile ritratto femminile che Coe e il suo fido narratore tratteggiano con luciferina intelligenza. A strange reading experience I really enjoyed the narrative and writing style even if it made me cross eyed at times However Maria s story is of a kind that I see no point in reading about I feel the same way about the main character in She s Come Undone by Wally Lamb but at least Maria isn t nastily inclined to other people merely indifferent or practices simple avoidance of those she prefers not to interact with Story is barely a 3 star Writing in terms of my enjoyment of its uniue style 45 stars A History Of Portuguese Economic Thought risposta è nella narrazione nell’ironia nel gioco nel memorabile The Works Of John M Synge Vol 2 ritratto femminile che Coe e il suo fido narratore tratteggiano con luciferina intelligenza.
