I enjoyed this, but after some years since reading it, I don't recall enough to discuss it.

I think incessantly of death, of oblivion, how nothing lasts, not even memory when the one who remembers is gone… 


I remember nothing. I remember everything. I believe everything. I believe nothing.


If there were ever any doubt that Ozick is a master storyteller, here’s your proof.



Do yourself a favor and skip the blurb; don’t read the synopsis. Let Petrie’s fictional monologue take you over; let yourself get to know him, his regrets, his idiosyncrasies, his losses, his attempts at connection with others. 



Imagine an interior monologue—shaped just as America shakes off the first half of the twentieth century—that is an examination of the shackles of memory, a questioning of who "owns" whose history and legacy, and a laying bare of the guilt involved in carrying your own and others' stories into the next generation.

Imagine this told with the baroque stylings of James within a Proustian project of aging, of facing both one’s mortality and the death of an age, wherein Dreyfus makes an appearance and for which fans of Bolano’s slim monologues and Marias’s own Jamesian verbosities will salivate at the mouth. 



Do yourself another favor and read this all in one gulp.

I didn’t really understand it, but I liked it anyway, it was very enjoyable to read, the writing was almost like poetry. My first Ozick novel, I’ll have to try another.
