An unabridged audio edition of this classic work on the 25th anniversary of its first publicationA modern classic, housekeeping is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, their eccentric and remote aunt. The family house is in the small Far West town of Fingerbone set on a glacial lake, the same lake where their grandfather died in a spectacular train wreck, and their mother drove off a cliff to her death. It is a town " chastened by an outsized landscape and extravagant weather, and chastened again by an awareness that the whole of human history had occurred elsewhere."

    A Student of Weather por Elizabeth Hay (Miels)
    Miels: Both are lyrical, heavily atmospheric novels. Both concern the relationship between a strange, bookish protagonist and her more sensible sister. In Robinson's book, it's an eccentric aunt who comes between them. In Hay's, it's a charming, seductive man. Both books are very much about love, loss, social ostracism, and ephemeral/elemental beauty.… (mais)

Ruth and Lucille are two young girls left with their grandma in Idaho shortly before their mother drives off a cliff. They are raised by a strange collection of women, including their Aunt Sylvie a wild soul who knows nothing of children. The writing is lyrical and paints a vivid portrait of a girl's youth where she's always waiting for the next person to leave her.

“Every sorrow suggests a thousand songs, and every song recalls a thousand sorrows, and so they are infinite in number, and all the same.”

“Why must we be left, the survivors picking among the flotsam, among the small, unnoticed, unvalued clutter that was all that remained when they vanished, that only catastrophe made notable?”

“Their lives spun off the tilting world like thread off a spindle, breakfast time, suppertime, lilac time, apple time.” ( )

Okay, everyone loves this book--and I thought much of the writing was really beautiful. But for me it was just too writerly. The writing seemed to me to be as present as character or sense of place, and I found it distracting. ( )

A friend suggested this one, and I did like it. She said that every sentence does something, which is surely true, but to me, it was almost too much. I don't want to advocate for throwaway sentences, but when every sentence is so very vigorous in rhythm, vocabulary, metaphor, and so on, it becomes almost overstimulating. The book didn't connect a lot for me emotionally (though I suppose it did more as it drew nearer the end), and I wonder if that's partially because I'm a man -- if a book in which men are absent, ghost, or parody and women are grappling with alienation and with their traditional roles as mothers, grandmothers, and housekeepers is one that I'm very well equipped to form a strong connection with in the first place.

I loved "Gilead," and so my natural inclination after finishing it was to find other books by the same author. Unfortunately, this novel just didn't appeal to me, though I can see how others would enjoy it. I'm glad to have finished it, but won't be rereading it anytime soon. ( )

I don't read a lot of fiction. So I have a hard time rating Housekeeping.
Was it moving? Somewhat.
Did the story feel cold, like in temperature? Yes, it feels like a dark icy place.
Was the story-line compelling? Mostly Yes.
Were the characters mysterious and oddly magnetic? Definitely.
Was it thought-provoking? Yes.
Was it fun and entertaining? Not really.
Was her writing poetic? Without a doubt.
Were there layers of meaning that I'm sure I missed? For sure.
Will I read it again? Maybe.
Is it worth reading again? Yes.
Will I read other books of hers? I hope to.
Is it a book I wish I could read with others who actually know anything about literature? 100%

Having a sister or a friend is like sitting at night in a lighted house. (p 154)
My grandmother['s]...eyes would roam over the goods she had accumulated unthinkingly and maintained out of habit as eagerly as if she had come to reclaim them. (p. 27)
Sylvie...considered accumulation to be the essence of housekeeping, and because she considered the hoarding of worthless things to be proof of a particularly scrupulous thrift. (p.180)
...fragments of the quotidian held up to our wondering attention, offered somehow as proof of their own significance (p73)
...leaves began to gather in the corners...Sylvie when she swept took care not to molest them. Perhaps she sensed a Delphic niceness in the scattering of these leaves and paper, here and not elsewhere.... (p.84-85)
