The Dutch House by Ann Patchett
Ann Patchett's novel deals with an enduring sister and brother relationship, consolidated when they are ejected from their childhood home, The Dutch House.
Putting books on hold at the library has its benefits until they all land at once and then you have to read them whether you’re in the mood to or not. I don’t know about you but I like the process of finishing a book, sitting quietly for a moment before putting it on the “Read” pile for the thrift store/charity shop or the little library down the road, and then savouring the moment where you can…

“If someone loves you for what you can do then it’s flattering, but why do you love them? If someone loves you for who you are then they have to know you, which means you have to know them.”

There are a few times in life when you leap up and the past that you’d been standing on falls away behind you, and the future you mean to land on is not yet in place, and for a moment you’re suspended, knowing nothing and no one, not even yourself.
(Ann Patchett, 2019, The Dutch House)

A Book for Fathers and Mothers and Sisters and Brothers by a daughter
A Book for Fathers and Mothers and Sisters and Brothers by a daughter
I read books but am not a reviewer. This is a beautiful book which speeds up like a roller coaster at some stages and then cruises along like a sail boat on a not so breezy day! It is full of love and feeling for all families! There is something of everyone in it! A must read!

started Commonwealth by Ann Patchett last weekend! i don’t know much about this author or book, but the summary says it spans five decades/kind of multigenerational, which i tend to like. i’ve only read the first chapter, but the imagery is super well done, in my opinion.
also, i’m still working on The Handmaid’s Tale, a little more than halfway through. i feel like i’ve barely had time to read with school, but i’m break this week and next, so hopefully i’ll finish one of these books in that time

I'd never been in the position of getting my head around what I'd been given. I only understood what I lost.

Only a few of us are going to be willing to break our own hearts by trading in the living beauty of imagination for the stark disappointment of words.

It makes you wonder. All the brilliant things we might have done with our lives if only we suspected we knew how.

Going forward, the lights may as well be off.
Putting together a novel is essentially putting together the lives of strangers I’m coming to know. In some ways it’s not unlike putting together my own life. I think I know what I’m doing when in truth I have no idea. I just keep moving forward. By the time the book is written, there is little evidence of the initial spark or a long-ago conversation in California Pizza Kitchen. Still, I’m able, for a while at least, to pick up the thread and walk it back. Everything looks so logical going backward—Yes, of course, that’s what we did—but going forward it’s something else entirely. Going forward, the lights may as well be off.
— Ann Patchett, from “These Precious Days” in Harper's Magazine, December 9, 2020
