So I managed to finish the book I didn’t like – I made myself a night sandwich and a glass of peach juice.
In the foreword the book is described as her strangest and most jarring work…
it was a struggle but towards the end the book finally takes shape and little themes, which have only been suggested, become clear: our accumulated doubts, unfinished business and broken dreams.
There are some very strong and hillarious images of women dressing up in their wealth, in old times in contrast to the looser late sixties fashion; she shouts (when asked if their jewellery is real) “they are as real as you people”, which ultimately is not an answer.
I’m thinking I should make a piece of Jewellery but don’t really have access to tools or time maybe I will make it in my head.
