The Bubble Reputation
This humorous novel from the author of The Weight of Winter tells of a bereaved Maine woman's relationship with her oddball family. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. Though still set in northern Maine, this fourth novel departs from Pelletier's trilogy: The Funeral Makers ( LJ 5/15/86); Once Upon a Time on the Banks ( LJ 8/89); and The Weight of Winter ( LJ 11/1/91). Through a year's cycle, we follow high school English teacher Rosemary as she recovers, after their eight years together, from her artist lover's unexpected suicide. Pelletier skillfully deals with death in life-affirming ways. Her lyrical chapters are gems glinting with humor that could generally stand alone as short stories. Rosemary's family and friends form a cast of unique characters that are nevertheless believable. Pelletier is excellent at illuminating ordinary lives within nature's context, bringing out the beauty and complexities they contain. Libraries collecting contemporary fiction should own all four highly recommended novels.- Rebecca S. Kelm, North ern Kentucky Univ.
