A Movable Marriage: a memoir Paperback – January 13, 2016
|New from||Used from|
"Ms. Pimental deftly quotes Virginia Woolf, Beryl Markham, and other trailblazing women all while clutching Frampton, the teddy bear her daughter gave her. A Movable Marriage is an honest, sweet and sharp look at what it means to love others."--Treanor Baring, Poetry Editor, National League of American Pen Women.
"A Movable Marriage is a delightfully entertaining read--a hearty blend of humor, adventure, trepidation, and nostalgia that fully captures the spirit of travel." --Johanna Bouchard, Epic Book Quest 5-star review
"A funny and poignant memoir about a homebody and her nomadic spouse." --Publisher's Weekly

In the early part of the book, there was a significant amount of humble-bragging involved, and clearly the author's life at that time wasn't remotely like my own very middle class cubicle farm experiences. I had a hard time empathizing, as even when in her more modest circumstances, she's clearly in a higher income bracket than me. And the middle part of the book, consisting of a series of moves and business ventures, was unlike my own more settled one, and is told in a way that doesn't really convey what all that moving feels like. If the book has one weakness (or is it a strength?) is in telling the story like a travelogue, rather than as an intensely emotional story with ups and downs.
Surprisingly, I find I am enjoying the read, and looking forward to finding out where next they go, even though I have heard that the book ends with them living "permanently" in Portugal. I wonder how long that will last.
