Ask Me No Questions dGetfulness Or maybe she was a tourist visiting friends Either way she accurately captures this milieu Like Cannery Row but with old white people I ve always wondered why books weren t written about the elderly yet so many books are written about the young Maybe we can all look back on youth but weon t know much about being old Maybe we only want to write about being old when we re old and when we get to be old we re too tired to write about it Or maybe being old is too The Gnadiges Fraulein. depressing and boring while being young is romantic and idealized Or maybe these books are being written but are just not very marketable or sexy so you never hear about themIn any case if you re interested in insightful entertaining fiction about the elderly you really can to much better than "this book which was written by Jansson when she herself was relatively old I think It is sad and funny and "book which was written by Jansson when she herself was relatively old I think It is sad and funny and moving If you ve read The Summer Book the only other Jansson book for adults that I ve read and one that s much popularly read than this one then you can expect some of the same elements the episodic nature of the novel though there is of an overall arc here and the final chapter Unscrewed definitely feels like the end of a novel the simple yet powerful language the personalities that are very much alive In fact this book is just as good as The Summer Book if not slightly better and it s sad that it s so overlookedJansson writes about a retirement community in St Petersburg Florida the cast of characters are all uniue and they all get on each other s nerves inifferent ways though they o seem to enjoy it in a strange comforting way The sadness in this book is very rarely explicit but skillfully woven inside of the humor and the stories and the mood there is a general sense of futility of aimlessness of the silliness of busy youth contrasted with the emptiness of ageThis book is now sadly out of print If it weren t for my trusty public library I would not have read it I hope some publisher like NYRB Classics hint hint will bring it back into printSome uotesIt was possible that the strictly frontal placement of the rocking chairs parallel to each other and facing straight ahead was the only practical arrangement It is probably ifficult thought Mrs Morris to place rocking chairs in groups that is rocking toward each other It would take a great eal of space and in the long run it might be tiresome Of course the original the natural idea was a single rocking chair in motion in an otherwise static room p 9She forgot to mention fear of her room the room you leave open behind you can be full of pitiful carelessness You have to hide away the signs and appurtenances of old age small anesthetic oversights all the supporting constructions of helplessness so unnoticed and so obvious p10Dear Madonna Linda whispered let me make love to Joe on the banks of the jungle river And then by your grace we will wade out into the water and swim slowly away together farther and farther away She reached up and switched on the Madonna s lamp not for the light but to pay respect Then she folded her hands on her lovely STOMACH AND FELL ASLEEP P 22BECAUSE and fell asleep p 22Because Thompson was a woman hater he thought about women a lot p 26I begin to believe that a person really can ie from such a thing as grief Our predicament Miss Frey is that that means of making an exit is no longer open to us Grief Miss Frey is very pure and strong and it reuires a great love It is not the same as being unhappy p 74Tim Tellerton knew that nothing could be suandered as easily as beauty It was seldom esteemed at its full value while it stood in bloom and later on it was preserved at the expense of far too much trouble and espair p 138What was a conversation and what could it mean Mutual consideration of important things Communication of experience and memory Construction of possibilities for the future To clarify and recognize together and to observe the changes in a glance a tone of voice a silence the silence of hesitation or understanding To shape without altering To laugh or to sit uietly in commo.
