This was a very good tale that kept the reader wondering exactly what had happened. Was it real somehow or was it all signs of her slipping into insanity? The story will make you think. The ending was very clever and I appreciated how the author tied it into real work events. Definitely worth reading this one.
In any case, the author does a wonderful job, if you like books like that. If you do in general, you will love this one. I'm just not sure I do. So it's more to do with my taste, than with the book. It's quite well done, just not exactly to my taste.
Lizzie Greene's husband calls her from a phone booth in Central Park to let her know he's on his way. But the knock on the door minutes later is not him, but NYC police, who inform her that her husband was killed by a madman a full hour before his phone call. Can this fully sane, perfectly healthy woman endure the sideways glances, the clinical skepticism, the family handwringing that follows her dogged insistence in the truth?
Stein does a lovely job of portraying Greene's descent into depression as her perception of reality teeters between what we know and what we can prove.
This is a very well-constructed, thoughtful and savvy novella from a talented author.
A pregnant woman, Lizzie, finds it impossible to come to terms with her husband's murder.
Anyone who's been unlucky enough to deal with such a traumatic event knows that their belief systems are given a severe workout, but -- for a reason I won't reveal -- Lizzie is unable to find comfort in the conventions of her family or friends.
In return, they become frustrated by her unwillingness to accept their offers of support.
Not only does the story raise interesting questions about depression, faith, religion, and the pressure to conform, but also about our ability to perceive the universe as it really is.
I found Ms Stein's novella both engaging and entertaining.
