Book Circle Reads 20Rating 475 of fiveThe Publisher Says In The Hours Michael Cunningham who is recognized as one of our very best writers Richard Eder Los Angeles Times draw inventively on the life and work of Virginia Woolf to tell the story of a group of contemporary characters who are struggling with the conflicting claims of love and inheritance hope and despairThe novel opens with an evocation of Woolf s last days before her suicide in 1941 and moves to the stories of two modern American women who are trying to make rewarding lives for themselves in spite of the demands of friends lovers and familyClarissa Vaughan is a book editor who lives in present day Greenwich Village when we meet her she is buying flowers to display at a party for her friend Richard and ailing poet who has just won a major literary prize Laura Brown is a housewife in postwar California who is bringing up her only son and looking for her true life outside of her stifling marriageWith rare ease and assurance Cunningham makes the two women s lives converge with Virginia Woolf s in an unexpected and heartbreaking way during the party for Richard As the novel jump cuts through the twentieth century every line resonates with Cunningham s clear strong surprising lyrical contemporary voicePassionate profound and deeply moving The Hours is Michael Cunningham s most remarkable achievement to dateMy Review Three women mirror the facets of the life of Clarissa Dalloway heroine of the novel Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf One life is Mrs Woolf herself shown in the depths of despair as she convalesces from one of her crippling bouts with depression in the suburban aridity of Richmond while pining for life in London s Bloomsbury writing her novel of the exuisite nature of the uotidian Another is the life of Mrs Laura Brown dying a million deaths every day in suburban Los Angeles raising a son and pregnant again by a good man she doesn t love as she reads Mrs Dalloway and ponders escape Lastly the life of Clarissa Vaughn whose long unreuited love for Richard Brown her gay poetnovelist friend has led her to care for him tenderly in his final years as an AIDS patient He long ago nicknamed her Mrs Dalloway both for her first name and for her exuisitely self abnegating strengthOver the course of one day in the life of each woman everything she knows and feels about her life is sharply refocused it is made clear to each that to escape the trap she is in she must accept change or die in the trap The ending of the book brings all three strands to their inevitable conclusions with surprising overlaps I first read this when it came out in 1998 I fell in love instantly as I had with Mrs Dalloway at a slightly earlier date I loved the imaginative structure of interwoven lives commenting on each other and riffing off the events in each world echoing some facet in every case the events in the iconic novel Mrs DallowayI can t give it five stars because in the end I wondered a bit if the clever clever hadn t gotten in the way of the emotional core of the book which I saw as the gritty determination of the women to live on their own terms and in their own lives not dependent on convention In making the book conform to this ideal I felt that some plot strands weren t honestly dealt with but rather forced into a shape reuired by the author s plansThat cavil aside the book is beautifully written and wonderfully interestingly conceived I d recommend it heartily and suggest reading it in conjunction with the movie

Michael Cunningham Ð 3 read & download review Ù eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Michael Cunningham read & download The Hours O livro vencedor do Pulitzer não é uma reescrita é um mergulho no abismo de Virginia Woolf ue traz à tona o ue faz dele uma obra o abismo singular do seu autor com o seu próprio poeta demente Richard ue podemos fazer euivaler a Septimus mas também a Virginia os seus beijos inesuecíveis o de Clarissa e Richard junto a uma lagoa ao crepú. Still she loves the world for being rude and indestructible and she knows other people must love it too poor as well as rich though no one speaks specifically of the reasons Why else do we struggle to go on living no matter how compromised no matter how harmed I m actually uite glad that I didn t have time to go to the movies in the early 2000s My first child was newly born and I was likely to be seen pacing a room with a cranky baby changing a diaper or passed out on the couch from exhaustion Hell I had even given up trying to read at that point in my life What I m trying to say is that I somehow missed seeing the film adaptation of The Hours when it was released Therefore I went into this book with minimal knowledge of the plot It was an absolute joy to read this Michael Cunningham swept me off my feet She could she thinks have entered another world She could have had a life as potent and dangerous as literature itself I loved everything about this book truly every single thing First and foremost is the sublime prose The inter connectedness of the stories between three women Virginia Woolf Laura Brown and Clarissa Vaughan affectionately nicknamed Mrs Dalloway by a dear friend and across three timelines 1920s late 1940s and early 2000s is extremely effective There is an overwhelming feeling that despite where and when you are born our struggles are timeless and cross all boundaries Virginia Woolf and her book Mrs Dalloway provide the link between all three story lines I have in fact read this slim novel by Woolf It s not necessary to have done so in order to appreciate The Hours The only advantage I had was understanding the relationship between Woolf s characters and those of Cunningham However Cunningham seamlessly weaves the writing of the book Mrs Dalloway into the context of Mrs Woolf s section of this novel in such a way that you will do just fine without that prior knowledge she is again possessed it seems to be getting worse by a dreamlike feeling as if she is standing in the wings about to go onstage and perform in a play for which she is not appropriately dressed and for which she has not adeuately rehearsed I don t know how so much depth was packed into little over 200 pages It s pure genius I know these women intimately I shared their deepest sorrows and desperate longings I get them This is not a cheery sort of book no We read about terminal disease depression and suicide There is the constant search for identity love and happiness Sometimes these things seem just out of reach Often they are impossible to hold onto when we are lucky enough to finally grasp them How does any one person make it through his or her day then What do we do with what we have Do we plow through and delight in those few moments that sustain us Do we take extreme action and do the unthinkable It s remarkable really that we are still here and we still thrive Life is a gift If we hold those few extraordinary hours in a lifetime of ordinary days in our hands like a fragile bubble that could burst at any moment then we are doing our best aren t weI m not ready to return this book to my shelf yet I need it by my side right now to serve as a reminder when I have too much time on my hands to reflect on where I ve been and where I m going It s a punch in the gut and a divine blessing snugly wrapped up in one little package There is still that singular perfection and it s perfect in part because it seemed at the time so clearly to promise Now she knows That was the moment right then There has been no other
