Tercümede bir şey kaybolduğunu düşünüyorum, çünkü iletişim kutusu bana çok gergin geldi. 100 sayfadan sonra neredeyse bıraktım, ama yine de karakterlerle ilgileniyordum. Ama 200 sayfadan sonra hala bitirmek için motive olmadım.
This book was my introduction to Joan Didion, so I don't know if it's a good example of her work, but I found it, even for a memoir, a bit too precious for my taste. There were some sections - particularly the ones relating to her daughter's illness - that were very compelling and emotionally wraught, but overall, I felt the book needed more of a balance between Joan-the-writer and Joan-the-mother/wife griever; the best parts for me were the ones that were the least self-conscious.
Probably a new favorite of mine. I go through literally hundreds of submissions a week for literary novels at work, and it is a tedious process, to say the least. But I will go through every single one for as long as I'm in publishing in the hopes that I will someday be able to acquire a novel as powerful and as beautifully written as this. The movie is great, and I love Nicole Kidman, but don't let that be a substitute for reading this! And for further reading on Woolf for those Virginia fans out there, Ruth Grubers "The Will To Create as a Woman" is a nice nonfiction piece on her.
