Attachment

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Isabel Fonseca on her first novel, Attachment, a story that reaches from the Indian Ocean to London to New York. About a woman's midlife crisis on an island in the Indian Ocean, the book is an unflinching depiction of desire, of the responsibility that comes with age and family, and of the nature of love.

"bury me standing, because i've been on my knees my whole life."

i thought i recognized that name.

anyway, "the book is an unflinching depiction of desire, of the responsibility that comes with age and family, and of the nature of love."

i think that sums up what every adult goes through. i've added it to my amazon shopping cart.

This is a bit off topic, but Ms. Fonseca also wrote a book about her experiences living with the 'gypsies', called Bury Me Standing. Would it be possible for Mr. Fonseca to comment briefly on whether she still has contact with them and her take on what is currently happening to the Romani/Sinti people across Europe? Thank you.
