    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBStewart O’Nan may simply be genetically incapable of writing a bad book His characters are written with precision intelligence and detail; they’re so luminously alive that a reader can accurately guess about what they’re eating for dinner or what brand toothpaste they useIn Emily Alone Mr O’Nan revisits Emily the Maxell family matriarch from a prior book Wish You Were Alone Anyone who is seeking an action based book or “a story arc” as taught in college writing classes will be sorely disappointed But for those readers who are intrigued by a near perfect portrait of a winningly flawed elderly woman who is still alive with anxieties hopes and frustrations this is an unsparingly candid and beautifully rendered novelEmily Maxwell is part of a gentle but dying breed a representative of a generation t

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBI have been binge reading Stewart O'Nan novels lately and this book 'Emily Alone' is a reread for me This is the story of 80 year old Emily Maxwell Emily is a widow she has lost her husband and her children and grandchildren are scattered across the country Emily spends her time with her old dog Rufus and her sister in law Arlene This story COULD have been a sad one after all

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBThis slow meditative novel is not for those who read for a fast plot Nothing much actually happens in this character study of an elderly woman dealing with the loneliness and complications of growing older She nurses her sister in law back to health after a health scare navigates the tricky waters of dealing with her grown children and grandchildren without trying to impose upon them or aggravate them attends services for old friends who pass away and tries to fill the endless hours that loom before her Emily spends most of her time alone or at least only with her dog Rufus We see a glimpse into the shrinking but still meaningful world of an older woman facing the last chapters in her life with grace and dignity

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBI'm not sure about all the great reviews this book received Yes Stewart O'Nan is a good author Songs for the Missing and The Good Wife are among his best novels however NOTHING happens in this book Yes 80 year old Emily keeps busy worrying about her aging dog nagging her adult children about their upcoming visits she has to plan and going to museum openings and breakfast buffets always with a coupon with her sister in law Arlene The reader spends nearly a year with Emilyand then the book ends I wondered how O'Nan knew he was done writing Emily is uite opinionated a charge she would vehemently deny saying that she is merely right all the time She is also passively negative By this I mean that she goes to a dear friend's funeral only to be blindsided by the organist playing one of the classical pieces she has chosen for her own funeral Now her day is ruined Or when Emily

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBI'm a big fan of Stewart O'Nan and have read several of his books They're not easy reading even though most are not overly long coming in at a publisher's dream of 300 pages O'Nan's stories are slow and complex with a lot of room for perspective of the reader Emily Alone left me feeling drained and a bit sad It's never uite clear at least to me exactly what age Emily is I'd like to think she is way older than me but I don't think that's true This perhaps is the reason for the emotional pull I felt throughout the story Emily Alonea woman struggling with aging and feelings of being all alone and on her own Children scattered an empty house husband gone alone Independence is hers even if she doesn't want it This new life is a st

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBAn 80 year old widow living in Pittsburgh waiting for Spring to come how exciting can this story be The narrative provides a book length character development by giving an account of the myriad of thoughts worries and activities of an older woman Some readers will note that not much happens but it’s surprising how interesting this life can be when portrayed by skilled writingLife at this age may appear to be uneventful but early in this book the reader is startled by an

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBThis story resonates for me because I'm always curious about the second half of life In Emily Alone an older woman grapples with what must be a common existential conundrum what is the motivation at this age Was she too old to start something How was she to see herself now Emily see saws back and forth between a hunger for life and a sense of futility In one scene Emily's daughter and adult grandchildren are visiting for Christmas Everyone has gone to bed the house is finally uiet and Emily is turning off lights and musingYesterday she'd been desperate Today she felt love Was it just Christmas If the clock str

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBLately Stewart O’Nan hasn’t made it easy to recommend his novels The only thing they’ve got going for them is their superb uality But ask “What’s it about” and his fans sound defensive or pretend they’re getting an important call on their cellphones Just try persuading your book club to read a novel about the day a Red Lobster restaurant closes Without incident Or how about a novel that describes an old lady waiting for spring It comes Face it O’Nan has become the Kobayashi Maru scenario of book marketing Even when his novels promise heart stopping spectacle — Daughter kidnapped Husband killed Teens crash — he resists every expected dramatic element This is an author who would drive all around town to avoid running over a single cheap thrill He subverts our desire for commotion and

    Paperback Ï Emily, Alone eBook Ì emily, mobile, alone pdf, Emily, Alone ePUBI have finally found my genre and I predict a new category of literature for aging female baby boomers When we find a book that appeals to us but that I figure guys would have no interest it can no longer be called chick lit; it will have to be called crone lit Emily Alone i
