Description

About the book

It is 1999. Kate Lambert, a grieving, semi-alcoholic film student, invites an elderly womanto take part in an oral-history documentary. The woman, Jean C ulver, declines, butmakes her a bizarre counter-offer: if Kate can stay sober for four days, she will tell her astory. And if she can stay sober beyond that, there will be another, and then another,amounting to the entire history of one family's life.Though still shattered by the death of her father, and by the desultory abuse imposed byLaurits, her enigmatic collaborator and erstwhile lover - Kate is soon drawn into aScheherazade-like matrix of tales, some painfully final, some still unfinished, in whichJean gradually offers a heartbreaking account, not only of one family, but of the Americancentury itself, from World War II to Vietnam and the Weather Underground.A profound, mysterious, deeply moving novel - a meeting of love and grief, like water onarid soil - Ashland & Vine is the story of an unlikely friendship that transcends time, ageand the limits of narrative to reveal the unexpected grace that comes of listening toanother's history, while telling, as carefully as we can, what we know of our own.
