Read full description of the books:



Loving Rumer Godden's fiction and enjoying it even more, I can't say the same for her non-fiction memoirs. I like it, don't love it. This is the last of the non-fiction that I've read and I feel the same about her own two, and also the one written with her sister. They're GOOD, but not to the level of her fiction.

It is NOT because her life was inconsequential or generic in any sense. It's her mercury/quicksilver kind of context. She, just like her movement into locations, flits from one subject and connection to a reference of intersection to another. It has some correlation in similarity to my entire extended Italian family being assembled within one large hall for any specific time period. Mountains of interest and information, but it's all pouring down the sides of waterfall noise and exclamation at once. A deluge. Not to mention the physical movement.

She has such a TEXTURE. She seems to feel color and see sound. All of Rumer is entrenched, and nearly at all times. Not just in the nature. She's also composing copy in her head at the same time. In this youth detailing from childhood of her earliest memories until the separation with her first husband, that aspect (writing in her head and being "above" her real life) overwhelms the read. To me, it does. And that aspect of these years appearing here in print form and in this type of minutia to yearly changes and maturation of her teen-age years (those especially)- it's just not a corresponding factor that translates to the print form well. Too much of too much. Reminds me of exclamation point euphoria? !!!!!!!

She scatters directions for thought in this consistently of her own personality. Lots of energy and very poor self control, both lived and recorded. All Rumer. All the time.

Most readers will enjoy this kind of abandon to fate more than I will. Especially considering the illnesses and health ordeals incurred for herself and her children? (The Rabies one made me think her parents were basically mad.) And she consistently, throughout her 90 years (every single memoir, alone or shared) seems rather proud of her monetary extravagance. No money for food or lodging but buying a portrait or paper mache artwork, or a childhood chair being more important to secure for keeping dry and "nice" than a daughter or servant?? Just like "Fa", she notes a couple of times. She can't live without the luxury need over the necessary and practical.

If we all lived life to this extent, as Rumer did, in so many places and on 3 or 4 continents and also survived as long as she did to tell the tale!

Oh what a world that would be.
