Explicações
perennialreader: Saw the movie-didn't get it. Read the book-didn't get it. Saw the movie again-got it!
Drapetsona: Maybe it's the only book about Maine I ever read. But it is one of my all-time favourites, Irving's best book, and very feministic (if this ever can be said about a male writer). - I don't like the film at all. There's everything missing what makes the book great.

CurrerBell
Explicações
CurrerBell: Mary Ellen Chase is the successor to Sarah Orne Jewett, whom Chase met when a child and who inspired Chase to a literary life. "The Edge of Darkness" resembles "The Country of the Pointed Firs" as well as Elizabeth Stroud's "Olive Kitteridge" in being a collection of stories/vignettes linked together by a common character (in "Pointed Firs," Almira Todd; in "Edge," the deceased village matriarch; and in "Olive Kitteridge," of course, Olive herself). My favorite of Chase's works, of which I've read quite a number.
