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." Ruth and Lucille's struggle toward adulthood beautifully illuminates the price of loss and survival, and the dangerous and deep undertow of transience.… (plus d'informations)

    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.… (plus d'informations)

...and the perished, whose lack we always feel, will step through the door finally and stroke our hair with dreaming, habitual fondness, not having meant to keep us waiting long.
Lush and spare at the same time, worth the patience required. ( )

I like this book. I've read it three times. The writing is beautiful . The impact of loss and longing is portrayed so well. I want to know more about those who were already gone -- Helen, the mother of Lucille and Ruthie, and Molly, the sister who left for China and never came back. But I can't know anything more because they are gone, and that's one way the author showed me how loss and longing relate.

There is so much to think about here. Sylvie, the aunt who looks after Ruthie and Lucille, has mental health issues. She is, however, functional (though maybe not equipped to raise young girls). Does she need to be cured? Would Ruthie have been better off being taken from Sylvie or would she have lost a connection to a kindred spirit who loved her? A very powerful book. ( )

A bit torn here. Yes, it is literature (capital L, please) and the writing is stunning, though some would say overdone in places. My issue is with the unrelenting bleakness of the landscape, both physical and mental. I think the book wants to be both a philosophical treatise and a novel and it didn't work for me at the very end when Robinson goes on for pages in a Biblical rant. ( )
  PattyLee | Dec 14, 2021 |
This is the type of book I want to read on a dark, melancholy evening, savoring the language and the story.

There were several times when the writing reminded me of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his use of magical realism, but in reverse. Instead of having fantastical occurrences treated as everyday happenings, Robinson takes commonplace occurrences and imbues them with magical qualities ( )

Robinson uses deliriously beautiful language to tell a quirky story filled with loss and longing. The lake is almost as much of a character as any of the people, but Ruthie and Sylvie are unforgettable. Fantastic and haunting. ( )

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)
