SUMMARY Ç M1O.RU ´ Tessa Hadley

Tessa Hadley ´ 1 READ READ Ð Clever Girl An ability to transform the mundane into the sublime that elevates domestic fiction to literary artWritten with the celebrated precision intensity and complexity that have marked her previous works Clever Girl is a powerful exploration of family relationships and class in modern life witnessed through the experiences of an English woman named Stella Unfolding in a series of snapshots Tessa Hadley’s moving novel fol Nothing is WastedDomestic Fiction Not something that I had recognized as a separate genre until the London Sunday Times reviewer mentioned it on the back cover of this highly satisfying novel The chronicle of ordinary lives But I realize that it is something that I greatly enjoy and a genre in which Tessa Hadley is an unassuming master Looking back at my review of her recent story collection Married Love I noted that for Hadley the true story lies less in events than the ellipses between them the way people move on with their lives flawed or ordinary though they might be While reading I was aware slightly apologetically that this was not an important novel with grand themes just small lives lived out of the limelight four star territory at most But Hadley reminds you that even small lives can be lived large and in this sense the novel is large indeed In a touching scene at the end of the book the heroine an Englishwoman named Stella revisits a childhood friend she hasn t seen for over thirty years hearing his regrets she is about to tell him that nothing is ever wasted And for her it isn t even though her life has taken many turns that she did not expectThe novel traces Stella s life from 5 to 50 A lower middle class girl from Bristol raised by a single mother she goes through all the usual passages childhood friendships adolescent love university odd jobs and eventual profession marriage and motherhood though not necessarily in that order There is one moment fairly early in the book when you realize that the course of her expectations will be disrupted For a moment it seems arbitrary almost a clich But then you realize that life itself is arbitrary and that clich s only seem so because they occur so often Time and again Hadley brings Stella to the edge of a situation you think you have seen before only to do something unexpected with it not necessarily some startling twist but unexpected simply because the course she takes is honest and uniuely hers There are ten chapters each starts with a little jump in time from the one before a few months a year a decade Ellipses as I say Hadley has no need to connect the dots there might be some rich stories there too but what she gives us is already enough to illuminate an ordinary but fully dimensioned life I am struck by her willingness to leave loose ends untied but also by her ability to turn things around a difficult marriage becoming a contented one for instanceIt occurs to me that the domestic fiction genre is especially English Perhaps there are some other practitioners like Alice Munro in Canada or the Swiss Peter Stamm but the names that come to my mind are predominantly British Penelope Lively Margaret Foster Maggie O Farrell even in some aspects Kate Atkinson There is also a particular pleasure here for a British reader to return to familiar objects Penguin bars green wellies a girl s hair the colour of conkers chestnuts and past ages from the sixties into the new millennium There is for instance a wonderful description of a cafe where Stella works including posters pinned to a noticeboard advertising yoga classes or feminist reading groups or political meetings And through it all there is Hadley s uietly perfect language and powers of observation So let me end with Stella as a child surprised to be the first to wake first in the house and venturing outside the rest of her journey you can read for yourself But today I couldn t hear a sound in the house I was the first to break the skin of the day stepping out on the lino which struck its frozen cold up through the warm soles of my feet When I parted the curtains and looked out the familiar scrappy back landscape trellis and dustbins and old bikes and crazy paving stepping stones was glazed in sunshine gleaming from its dip into the night
