2024 book #24. 2001. Essays on journeys of discovery, for example: the Northwest Passage, Incan gold, the Rosetta Stone, the South Pole. All interesting tales of the people undertaking these journeys. Written in a breezy style which kept my attention throughout.

This very skilled rendering of the modern wife in early to mid-century America pulls out a lot of the continuing themes of modernism: the power of conformity, the elimination of God, alienation, communities built out of exclusivity, the broken family. Consumerism is one of the many dead ends in this novel. It's heroine,India Bridges, seems forever on the edge of screaming "I give in!" without knowing exactly who is pulling the strings around her. She is a great mirror and that, I think, is why we cannot put the book down.… (mais)

This is the only book in my memory that made me feel both sad (unsettled? upset?) and elated simultaneously, from the first page to the last, throughout. I was quite heartbroken to return the book.

It is funny, certainly, and thoroughly engaging. It is, however, profoundly unsettling in many ways. The chilly skittering along my spine has been my loyal companion for the whole ride.

I adored this little gem!
