Smakebit på ein søndag - nr. 64


Flukten frå virkeligheten publiserer kvar søndag ein smakebit frå boka ho les, og inviterer andre bloggere til å bli med. Skriv eit innlegg om din smakebit, og link innlegget ditt til Maris innlegg.

Etter å ha lest meg ein smule lei på burde-bøker og nye norske bøker har eg gått over til amerikanske samtidsromaner. Først ut er Karen Joy Fowlers Booker-nominerte roman.
What I found in books was daughters indulged and daughters oppressed, daughters who spoke løudly and daughters made silent. I found daughters imprisoned in towers, beaten and treated as servants, beloved daughters sent off to keep house for hideous monsters. Mostly, when girls were sent away, they were orphans, like Jane Eyre and Anne Shirley, but not always. Gretel was taken with her brother into the forest and abandoned there. Dicey Tillerman was left with her siblings in a parking lot at a shopping mall. Sara Crewe, whose father adored her, was still sent away to live at school without him.
Frå Karen Joy Fowlers We Are all completely beside Ourselves.

XOXO
