The Hours: A Novel | Michael Cunningham
The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel becomes a motion picture starring Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, and Nicole Kidman, directed by Stephen Daldry from a screenplay by David HareThe Hours tells the story of three women: Virginia Woolf, beginning to write Mrs. Dalloway as she recuperates in a London suburb with her husband in 1923; Clarissa Vaughan, beloved friend of an acclaimed poet dying from AIDS, who in modern-day New York is planning a party in his honor; and Laura Brown, in a 1949 Los Angeles suburb, who slowly begins to feel the constraints of a perfect family and home. By the end of the novel, these three stories intertwine in remarkable ways, and finally come together in an act of subtle and haunting grace.The Hours is the winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

(Day 19 - #HappyHour)

*Well, obviously this book‘s “hours” are not particularly happy ones. But I‘m sure Cunningham had a happy hour when he won the Pulitzer, as did Nicole Kidman when she won the Oscar for best actor. So—there you are.

LiteraryinLititz I LOVE this book. I did a conference presentation on it in grad school too. 4mo

I‘m honestly not sure how I feel about this one. The book itself is incredibly well written as the author seamlessly flows from one story line into the next. And while I can empathize with the almost out of body, “who‘s life is this?” feeling, I couldn‘t quite manage a deep connection to any of the characters. Mrs. Dalloway is still on my TBR list. #bookcrossing #movievsbook

Stunning. Beautiful. Haunting. This book delves deeply into what it has meant to be a woman in society over the last century. It brings to life the suffocating horror of the at times seemingly trivial and mundane expectations of a wife, mother, woman.

Going strong with #24b4monday readathon. Just finished my second book on the list and it was excellent. Another 5 star rating from me in one day. The connection to its predecessor is like poetry. It is embedded in the work like another character. This author fully captures the themes of mental illness, aging, time and sexuality effortlessly in this novel. I definitely will be revisiting this one in the future.

It seems suddenly easy to bake a cake, to raise a child...It seems possible (it does not seem impossible) that she‘s slipped across an invisible line, the line that has always separated her from what she would prefer to feel, who she would prefer to be...She has worked so long, so hard, in such good faith, and now she‘s gotten the knack of living happily, as herself, the way a child learns at a particular moment to balance on a two-wheel bicycle

I was feeling overwhelmed and overwrought yesterday evening when I pulled this book off the shelf. I‘m so glad I did. This is a work of brilliance and empathy and, despite all rational evidence, I don‘t believe for a second that it was written by a man. Cunningham walks a darkened corridor, the walls a timeline of horror and pain, but illuminates only the floor in its ordinary reality. This book is tactful & poignant & an honor to Virginia Woolf.

Redwritinghood I‘ve enjoyed every book of his I‘ve read. 1y
Bianca When I read this as a younger person, it was a revelation. I still think about it sometimes. ❤ 1y

Read the book before watching the film!
It is quite depressing, but it's supposed to be! It's beautifully depressing and people who have been affected by depression or suicide will either understand or feel understood.
I am looking forward to reading what else Cunningham has written. I just discovered that this won the Pulitzer too which I think was well deserved. Gorgeous!

...but she leaves behind her an unmistakable sense of watchful remonstrance, as if an angel had briefly touched the surface of the world with one sandaled foot, asked if there was any trouble and, being told all was well, had resumed her place in the ether with skeptical gravity, having reminded the children of earth that they are just barely trusted to manage their own business, and that further carelessness will not go unremarked.

I express myself a lot better without character restrictions Full review: http://bit.ly/2tVtiYJ

Focuses on a day in the life of three different women in three different time periods. All three women are trapped, by their sexuality, by their inner conflict, mental illness, societal expectations, their past.
Linked together by the actual book Mrs Dalloway as well as themes and characters from the original.

I will say first of all that I'm very glad I read Mrs Dalloway before reading this book. It helped me understand the connection between Virginia and Clarissa. I also enjoyed the parallels between the Clarissas' days. I feel like I was waiting for a stronger connection between the women at the end? Was I supposed to be surprised that Laura Brown was Richard's mom? I assumed that was the case as soon as they said his name was Richie.

I adore this book!
I could call it an accomplished tribute to "Mrs Dalloway" but that makes it sound dull and sterile when it is anything but. It's clever, yes, but more than that it is beautiful, humane and moving. Also, it's to Michael Cunningham's credit that I lost myself in all three women's inter-connected stories and wasn't impatient to get back to the Virginia Woolf chapters.

This book is a marvel. It takes a lot of courage to tackle the life and work of a writer of Virginia Woolf's statue even glancingly in fiction but Cunningham manages it effortlessly. He manages to evoke all the fragile beauty, depth, melancholy and humour of her style without aping it or losing his own voice. The way connects her story and those of his characters is beautifully managed and all three women are drawn with wonderful clarity and life.

I apparently read this book about 14 years ago (based on my trademark highlights of certain paragraphs) and yet I remembered nothing about it. Now as a grown woman, wife, and mother - I can't forget it. There are universal truths about everyone here - the small hours of our lives that sometimes exhaust and those hours we live for. This was haunting, powerful, and if I'd read Mrs. Dalloway already I'd probably be giving this 5 stars.

#MarchIntoReading Day 2 - Judged By Its Cover

I know, I know, I know - the story is exactly the same, but I do judge the movie/TV/play covers of books. I picked this up at a library book sale, but I'm definitely in the market for a different version. Maybe this should have been my #bookishconfession 🤔
