Comentarios Nacida para sustituir, en cierto modo, a dos hermanos muertos en un accidente, Ruth Cole vive una infancia muy especial. Era un sonido del todo nuevo para ella. El alto, moreno y de rostro anguloso era Thomas. De rodillas sobre la cama, sujetaba los pechos de la mujer y copulaba con ella como un perro, pero no fue ni la violencia ni la repugnancia del acto sexual lo que hizo gritar a Ruth. Y tampoco fue la desnudez del joven lo que la hizo gritar.

Shelves: romance , nostalgia , history , death , fiction A Widow for One Year turned out to be better than I initially thought, although the pages featuring graphic sex scenes were kind of disturbing and felt out-of-place in the story. This book otherwise not only paints a vivid, realistic portrait of grief, but also love and nostalgia.
Characters grow old with the reader, experience lust and loss, love and life. The thoughtfulness of his every detail and the concise placement of every word create a landscape more vivid than reality One of the interesting topics of conversation in A Widow for One Year involves the main characters attitude towards autobiographical fiction. Irvings protagonist, world-famous author Ruth Cole, gives one hope that the John Irving has yet again created a whole world between the covers of a novel.
Or, as would seem the case with my imagination, compensate for inobservance. When Ruth doubts her imagination and seeks real-life research for inspiration, she finds that reality is rarely as scripted and contained as her fiction. Appropriately enough, even her harsh reality is just a construct of Irving although I am not familiar enough with him to know if it comes from his imagination or not. One aspect of A Widow for One Year that struck a chord other than the glorious title was the fact that, except for on a few rare occasions, the characters did not change.
A love-struck boy, aged into his fifties, carries his idealized boyhood obsession throughout his adulthood.
A whorish best friend does not let life jade her into changing, although she may at times feel a twinge of regret for the innocent pleasures she forfeits. In the end, who has changed? I also had the pleasure of watching the movie based on the beginning third of this book, entitled A Door in the Floor starring Kim Basinger and Jeff Bridges.
