You wouldn t expect it from her but Carol Shields has written a naughty book Put your yellow highlighter down There s no sex but the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Stone Diaries is doing something indecorous here ribbing our notions of grief even snickering at what inspires usHer latest novel a mischievous monologue called Unless begins with lamentations Reta Winters once had it all a loving partner who s a successful doctor three smart daughters a beautiful house outside Toronto and a stimulating career as a translator She had heard of sadness and pain of course but she confesses I never understood what they meantUntil now Happiness is not what I thought she concludes Happiness is the lucky pane of glass you carry in your head It takes all your cunning just to hang on to it and once it s smashed you have to move into a different sort of life Now in this new dark world it s clear to her that the past was filled with impossibly childish and sunlit days before I understood the meaning of griefWho needs a downer like this That s what s so strange It s a very funny book Even in the middle of her anguish she suddenly looks into the camera and says with deadpan sarcasm I am attempting to count my blessings Everyone I know advises me to take up this repellent strategyBut nothing can alleviate the pain caused by her daughter s decision to drop out of college and live a life of virtue For months now 19 year old Norah has been sitting on a street corner begging with a sign around her neck that says GOODNESS She won t speak to her parents and friends or even acknowledge their presenceFor Reta this calamity calls everything into uestion particularly her family s baffling reflex to carry on with normal life The melody of their pleasant days stays essentially the same only the beat changes At night her husband sets aside his study of trilobites to investigate mental illness She checks out a few books on the nature of goodnessLike the friends of Job everyone offers Reta reasonable but ultimately unsatisfying counsel Norah must be depressed it s just a phase her hormones are out of balance she s had a nervous breakdown she broke up with her boyfriend she s suffering from post traumatic stress All reassure her that it has nothing to do with the uality of her mothering but Reta knows betterAnd then she slides around again and realizes that her daughter must be responding to the powerless condition of women by rejecting the chauvinistic world and retreating into a kind of impotent pietyAha a cause to fight Suddenly her women s group seems relevant than ever The gains of the feminist movement were paltry and the movement itself is stalled There are letters to write outrage to be registered calmly and corrections to be made without sounding shrillShields has captured something remarkably subtle and unsettling Reta s grief would be so much cleaner if she weren t cursed with such ironic self awareness with moments of realizing that s she s a self pitying harridan How can she speak of her bottomless agony while translating the work of a Holocaust survivor How can she stomach the embarrassment of reading her own whining melodramatic scrawlOn the other side she can t keep her own wit from corroding every moment of inspiration No sooner does she sigh with teary relief than she realizes such moments are fake jewels twin babies in snowsuits that allow her to be tipped from skepticism to belief Even as she begins studying virtue she feels compelled to note I am not by the way unaware of the absurdity of believing one can learn goodness through the medium of print Bookish people who are often maladroit people persist in thinking they can master any subtlety so long as it s been shaped into acceptable expository proseAs a writer Reta can t resist the reflex to stand outside herself analyzing calling into uestion every motive pushing her emotions and thoughts in one direction or another just to see where they leadShe also begins writing a comic romance knowing full well that she s retreating from the stubborn problems of her real life to enter a fictive world under her control But how this wily novel asks can a placebo work if you know it s a placebo What can keep the witty self aware person from ricocheting between gassy inspiration and bitter shame In her own sophisticated way Shields has sneaked a whoopee cushion under the soft pillow of self pityNothing is surprising though than the story s ending In a weird translation into comedy with some brilliant commentary on the publishing world the novel suddenly wraps everything up neatly Of course Reta notices this tidy denouement too After all throughout the story she s one step ahead of us Novelists she admits are always being accused of indulging in the artifice of coincidenceSince we first met her Reta s taunts have trained us to be skeptical of all such artifice but come on Shields suggests with a wink everybody needs to rest sooner or later And ultimately what other indulgence can we enjoy than the wonderful coincidence of being alive together This is one of those books that make you regret that reading is a solitary pleasurehttpwwwcsmonitorcom20020509p1
