" Four scenes, four people: Joe Saul, an older man who yearns for a child, unaware that he is sterile; Mordeen, his beautiful, adoring wife who conceives a child to make Joe Saul happy; and Victor, the brash, desperate father: and Friend Ed, who guides them all through the anguish and the pitfalls of their situation.
Dramatic and intense, John Steinbeck`s experimental play-novelette tells a tale that could happen anywhere and at any time, exploring as it does elemental human needs and passions. "

Jeg takker mange gange for den bogpakke der ventede på mig, da jeg kom hjem fra min ferie til Paris.

Denne bog kunne jeg godt selv tænke mig at læse, så det vil jeg lige overveje om jeg skal. Jeg ved endnu ikke om den senere frislippes på den OBCZ der allerede eksisterer, eller om den måske skal med i den kasse, jeg har planer om at medbringe på universitetsbaren, i et forsøg på at starte en forhåbentlig mere aktiv zone op der.

This book has been waiting on the shelves for such a long time - and what a shame. I read it in a few hours, and found it very beautiful.
I read Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell a few months ago and I really like the way the same characters appear in different settings (and times) and enhance the universal dilemmas. It works very well in this play/novella, so maybe Mitchell got his inspiration from this?
