I l'ha amata per tutta la vita nonostante gli alti e bassi della relazione Già dal primo incontro il loro a s'iscrive sotto il segno della magia percorrendo territori sempre in bilico tra realtà e fantasia Una riflessione di volta in volta. What a neat bizarre little book this was Margarettown is actually a letter from father to daughter telling the tale of how he meets her mother Margaret and his life thereafter I loved the blurred lines between fable and reality where you wonder if the narrator is being imaginative a little deluded or just trying to compensate for the aspects of Margaret he couldn’t understand There is a deep sadness and regret in his remembering and retelling tinged with a sense of humor and hope that he wishes to pass to his daughter I was torn between 3 and 4 stars but I settled on 4 simply because Zevin’s writing is artistic and captivating

Have you ever seen Life is Beautiful It's an Italian film set during the Holocaust and it stars Roberto Benigni the guy who said he wanted to “kiss everybody” when he accepted his Oscar for Best Actor for the roleIt's absolutely magical which may sound like a strange thing to say about a movie set primarily in a concentration camp but that's what happens when someone as effusive and whimsical as Benigni is involved He plays a man named Guido who is taken to Auschwitz along with his wife and young son To keep his son from getting scared he constructs an elaborate story to explain why they are in the camp and what is happening to them He tells his son they are playing a secret game and the grand prize is a tank He has to pull off some ridiculous stunts along the way to keep up the ruse but he always manages to keep the game going and his son smiling Knowing that the truth is too grim for a child to bear Guido creates an imaginary world around them in which love and joy can still exist It's one of the most beautiful depictions of love I've ever seen and it's the same kind of story that Gabrielle Zevin has crafted in Margarettown her debut novel from 2005Maggie Towne is a woman with many layers Zevin's narrator N learns uickly that to love her means to love many women at once and he does—almost all of them anyway There's Marge the middle aged droopy breasted cynic of whom he's not so fond and Greta in her thirties and suffering emotionally about whom he's only heard murmurs But there is appeal in seven year old May and teenager Mia and even in wise Old Margaret a friendly septuagenarian Strange as it may seem N's beloved Maggie embodies all these women at once and he must find a way to live with them allAs the book progresses we learn N's reason for writing it he is dying and he wants his daughter Jane to know the story of his life with her mother the multi faceted Maggie Suddenly the odd devices and magical details make sense—this isn't so much a factual history as it is a way for Jane to make sense of her parents' lives N is telling Jane a version of their story in which love and joy can still exist Facts aren't particularly important here just as they aren't when Guido lies to his son about Auschwitz Sometimes story takes precedence over truth or maybe it reveals a better oneI adored this book I loved the sections that strained credulity I loved the tempestuous but passionate relationship and I loved the charming little recurring motifs I'd read along and there would be another extra long twin mattress and I'd smile because who would ever have picked an extra long twin mattress as a symbol of love Zevin must be a very creative and very wacky personThis is the best book you've never heard of It's a story that couldn't be told any other way Try it out—I promise you won't regret your trip to MargarettownMore book recommendations by me at wwwreadingwithhipposcom
