    PaperbackÏ Ithaca MOBI å ithaca mobile, Ithaca PDFEPUBSince we’re talking soup—or at least we will be—I’d like to offer the literary ingredients that I’d put to use were I cooking up a novel like Susan Fish’s Ithaca which I loved First half a stack of Barbara Pym novels since Pym is the original chronicler of the unknown fascinating inner lives of lonely middle aged women particularly those who type indices for academic men Next toss in a novel or two by Wallace Stegner or at least All the Little Live Things and Crossing to Safety for their depictions of the intimacies of long marriages late in life garnered insight and—in the case of the latter book—a cozy look at academic communities Then season with Barbara Kingsol

    PaperbackÏ Ithaca MOBI å ithaca mobile, Ithaca PDFEPUBThe first lines of Susan Fish’s Ithaca pulled me in “Help out Those were the magic words that had colored my whole existence You could always count on Daisy to help out” Daisy was once a comfortably dependent faculty wife but as a widow she sees life from new angles and searches for understanding and connection Seeking and uestioning are appropriate activities for Ithaca NY the upstate New York town where the book takes placeFish’s descriptions of Ithaca and its surroundings are convincing and loving I picture myself downtown on the Commons at beautiful Buttermilk Falls and Fall CreekDaisy seems unusually innocent and naive but soon there

    PaperbackÏ Ithaca MOBI å ithaca mobile, Ithaca PDFEPUBOfficial disclosure I got this book for free through Goodreads First Reads Thanks guysI don't usually read books like Ithaca Usually I read books that would be called exciting thrilling high adrenaline Ithaca is none of those but it was nonetheless a surprising retreat Ithaca made me feel like I was in a small town even on my NYC subway commute I kept thinking of my grandparents and the town they live in Things are slow and uiet ordinary and simple but I'm drawn in by the prospect of a couple days away from fast paced life Nothing feels rushed but even the small things feel important It's a long slow avalanche as Daisy says about the local geology and the reader only gets to see a slice of that avalanche without a neatly tied up ending which works better th
