It is said that most writers have only one story to tell and if they write than one book they essentially find lots of different ways of telling or exploring that story After reading in fairly uick succession three of Carol Shields s books The Stone Diaries The Box Garden and this book I wonder if her story is about a search for genuine internal kindness and compassion as opposed to the stuff we feign or aspire to knowing that we secretly have the opposite feelings But to reduce Shields s work to that one theme seems unfair She writes with such muscle weaving a concern for philosophical and sociological issues into her stories In Unless a writer named Reta Winters grapples with a woman s place in literature and in life as she agonizes over her eldest daughter s retreat from family and participation in life by becoming a mute beggar wearing a cardboard sign on her chest a single word printed in black marker GOODNESS as she sits on a street corner in Toronto How does Shields manage coherence Somehow she intertwines palpable warmth in her descriptions of family marriage and home along with long passages about women s invisibility or miniaturization in literature along with her protagonist Reta Winters s notes about the light fiction she is writing talk about images within images writer Carol Shields writes a writer who is writing a writer who is writing along with a mother s understanding of her daughter s pain and her own desperation for the well being of all three of her children Shields pulls off what could in less muscular hands become a tedious weave Not only was I intrigued as a reader but as a writer I was inspired

UPDATE May 2016 Just found out this is going to be a movie starring Catherine Keener as Reta It will probably play the Toronto Film Festival in the fall Looking forward to itIn Carol Shields s Unless Reta Winters a happy middle aged novelist and translator a wife and mother of three children discovers that her 19 year old daughter has dropped out of university and is panhandling on the streets of Toronto holding a sign that reads Goodness That one sentence synopsis while accurate doesn t begin to suggest the rich detail and generosity of spirit behind Shields s final novelThe book is partly a mystery an attempt to solve the uestion What happened As Reta fills in details about her husband her children her neighbours her friends her mother in law the eminent French writer whose memoirs she s been translating for years we begin to get a sense of the rhythms and layers of her life of anyone s life reallyAnd then there are the characters in Reta s new novel a seuel to her light comedy My Thyme Is Up As she sinks deeper into despair unable to protect her homeless daughter she focuses on moving the lives of her characters around to their inevitably happy endingThis passage is keyA life is full of isolated events but these events if they are to form a coherent narrative reuire odd pieces of language little chips of grammar mostly adverbs or prepositions that are hard to define since they are abstractions of location or relative position words like therefore else other also thereof heretofore instead otherwise despite already and not yetEach chapter in this book and indeed the book s title itself takes its name from one of those odd pieces of language And gradually the details begin to form a coherent wholeSo many scenes made me reflect on my own life recognize how certain moments can be so fleeting Shields helps capture them in all their wonderful ordinariness After an exchange between Reta and one of her daughters Reta thinks When she looks back on her life when she s a fifty year old Natalie post menopausal savvy sharp a golf player a maker of real estate deals or eighty years old and rickety of bone confined to a wheelchair whatever she becomes she ll never remember this exchange between the two of us outside the bathroom door Her life is building upward and outward and so is Chris s They don t know it but they re in the midst of editing the childhood they want to remember and getting ready to live as we all have to live eventually without our mothers Three uarters of their weight is memory at this point I have no idea what they ll discard or what they ll decide to retain and embellish and I have no certainty either of their ability to make sustaining choicesSo much clear eyed wisdom about life I could go on uoting passages there are so many but I ll let you experience them yourselves

I am tempted to write this was a beautifully written load of old cobblers and leave it at that but that statement probably deserves to be elaborated on I didn t start out hating on this novel it incrementally built up misdeed upon misdeed I can t work out if Shields is basically thumbing her nose at any critic that has suggested woman s writing is too small too focused on the domestic not concerned with the larger crisis of man In Unless Shields seems to be purposely playing to those criticisms There is a lengthy love letter to silk scarf shopping a discourse on the satisfactions to be found in housework awkward judgements on appearance oh the poor chunky daughter and a kind of Vogue Living esue passage about what constitutes a room and the importance of fragrant woods and perfectly faded kilim rugs This is all set against what is nominally a story about a daughters flight into vagrancy and her inexplicable search for GOODNESS It actually ends up being very little about Norah s actions but rather it seems like Shields has used this as a motif upon which to theorise about powerlessness and the plight of modern woman I find this an unforgivable abuse of a minor character I was desperate to hear from Norah herself or her sisters her boyfriend anyone but the melancholy hand wringing of her mother Reta The explanation of Norahs behaviour when it does finally come is so puzzling to me that I audibly muttered no no no when I read it It is all rather casually dealt with in a few pages like an afterthought Poor Norah So if this is not really about family disfunction or vagrancy what is it about It seems to me to be most concerned with writing itself and specifically the struggles of woman writers to be taken seriously I wish this could have been done without these large sections from Reta s novels A Thyme in Bloom and My Thyme is Up both of which I would award a Good Reads rating of 1 star if I could purely for the passages about Andy and his thrusting thrombone Was all this meant to be ironic a writer with feminist sensibilities writing what seems like escapist soft romantic fiction Is it a parody of the kind of books woman are suppose to like and woman writers are expected to write I just plain gave up trying to dissect all layers of potential meaning Some books I dislike due to the writing style others as in this case are beautifully written but just fail to resonate Despite finding this all fairly dire I am still interested in reading Shields s Pulitzer prize winner novel The Stone Dairies as I think this novel just struck me at all the wrong angles
