The late interiors (2011 edition)

the late interiors s andor marjorie

There are grace notes, in particular Sandor's observations of climate and what it's meant to her life. I enjoyed this book a great deal. This is a candid story of new beginnings, facing their own mortality,building a marriage,making a stake in a community,grief and the seasons of change. New York : Arcade Pub. While she heads to the garden and there is a great deal of gardening, a dozen trips to nurseries and three times as many into the soil behind her home for succor and solace, for joy and distraction, we do not feel its grip; it does not sustain us.

The Late Interiors by Marjorie Sandor (ebook)

the late interiors s andor marjorie

At a time in her life when she once thought a person should have been well settled in for the long haul, Sandor and her new beloved set out to being a new life together. There's also good news: you will marry your new love, your child's wisdom and grace will astound you, other friends will survive cancer and you will use all of it, as well as your obsession with your garden and its cyclical regeneration, as material and metaphor. Instead, they tumble in on each other, like the shards within a kaleidoscope, forever changing, creating new patterns, refusing to stick together. Harry -Potter Search results will not contain 'Potter'. The tone of the book is pretty self-serving and I find little sympathy that her new life was facing difficulties.
