Carter's last hurrah.,
This review is from: Wise Children (Paperback)
When she found out she would die of cancer, Carter decided to write one last novel as an expression and celebration of life. She challenges all taboos in society. She leads us to question why we feel uncomfortable with the elderly, "illegitimate" culture etc.
The novel is written in a complex manner, with time as fluid a theme as language.
Everything is more of an experience than a read. Memories are brought on by smeel or songs.
The shakepearean theme is constant, which also accounts of the large number of twins and confusion.
READ IT.- or do so in college.
