Descrizione libro Mariner. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Condizione libro: New. (Named a 2014 Best Book of the Year by NPR, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Salon; a Kirkus Prize Finalist) Meet Florence Gordon, a blunt, brilliant, cantankerous, passionate, feminist icon to young women, yet invisible to almost everyone else. At 75, Florence has earned her right to set down the burdens of family and work in order to shape her legacy at long last. But just as she sets to writing her memoir, her son Daniel returns to New York from Seattle with his wife and daughter in tow, embroiling Florence in their dramas and clouding her days, threatening to erase her jealously guarded solitude. And then there is her left foot, which is starting to drag. With searing wit and sophisticated intelligence, as well as a tender respect for humanity, this novel from the author of the PEN/Faulkner Award finalist Starting Out in the Evening features a constellation of unforgettable characters, chief among them Florence herself, who can humble fools with a single barbed line, but who eventually finds that there are some realities even she cannot outwit."Combining a rigorous intellect and a deep humanity, this is the story of a feminist hero, a family coming together and apart, and the ways we interpret the past and attempt to face the future. Most of all, Florence Gordon shows how passion—of one type or the other—shapes a heart."—Alice Sebold"Morton's intelligent, layered portrait of a feisty, independent older woman is an absolute joy to read, not only for its delightful wit but also for its dignified appraisal of aging and living life on one's own terms."—Booklist (starred review)"Morton's characters are sharply drawn, vivid in temperament and behavior, and his prose smartly reveals Florence's strength and dignity."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) 306.
