HASH(0x9d653c78) out of 5 stars Lessons in life June 26 2015
By Orlando - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best novels I have read for a long time, and I read a lot. Olive Senior is an experienced writer of poetry, short stories and non-fiction. This is beautifully written and very moving. It is about an elderly Jamaican woman and her friends and family, and if you think that sounds uninteresting then you should think again. It is rather like John McGahern's masterpiece, "Amongst Women," and I cannot give it higher praise than that. Read it, love it, and tell your friends and other serious readers about it. This book deserves prizes, and deserves to be widely read. "Dancing Lessons" gives us lessons in life, and there is no greater meaning in literature than that.

Format: Kindle Edition
Crafted in a series of flashback stories, a life lived is told. Having grown up in a different culture, I thoroughly enjoyed the insights into another culture along with pieces of commonality - seniors' residences, feelings of inadequacy, fear for our children, desire for ourselves.
