Bee season : a novel by Myla Goldberg( Book )

62 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 11 languages and held by 2,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eliza Naumann, a seemingly unremarkable nine-year-old, expects never to fit into her gifted family: her autodidact father, Saul, absorbed in his study of Jewish mysticism; her brother, Aaron, the vessel of his father's spiritual ambitions; and her brilliant but distant lawyer-mom, Miriam. But when Eliza sweeps her school and district spelling bees in quick succession, Saul takes it as a sign that she is destined for greatness. In this altered reality, Saul inducts her into his hallowed study and lavishes upon her the attention previously reserved for Aaron, who in his displacement embarks upon a lone quest for spiritual fulfillment. When Miriam's secret life triggers a familial explosion, it is Eliza who must order the chaos. Myla Goldberg's keen eye for detail brings Eliza's journey to three-dimensional life. As she rises from classroom obscurity to the blinding lights and outsized expectations of the National Bee, Eliza's small pains and large joys are finely wrought and deeply felt

Wickett's remedy : a novel by Myla Goldberg( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a multidimensional, intricately wrought narrative, Myla Goldberg leads us back to Boston in the early part of the twentieth century and into two completely captivating worlds. One is that of Lydia, an Irish American shopgirl with bigger aspirations than your average young woman from South Boston. She seems to be well on her way to the life she has dreamed of when she marries Henry Wickett, a shy medical student and the scion of a Boston Brahmin family. However, soon after their wedding, Henry abruptly quits medical school to create a mail-order patent medicine called Wickett's Remedy, and just as Lydia begins to adjust to her husband's new vocation, the infamous Spanish influenza epidemic of 1918 begins its deadly sweep across the world, irrevocably changing their lives. In a world turned almost unrecognizable by swift and sudden tragedy, Lydia finds herself working as a nurse in an experimental ward dedicated to understanding the raging epidemic, through the use of human subjects. Meanwhile, a parallel narrative explores the world of QD Soda, the illegitimate offspring of Wickett's Remedy, stolen away by Henry Wickett's one-time business partner Quentin Driscoll, who goes about transforming it into a soft drink empire. Throughout the novel we hear from a chorus of other voices who offer a running commentary from the book's margins, playing off the ongoing narrative and cleverly illuminating the slippery interplay of perception and memory. Based on years of research and evoking actual events, Wickett's Remedy perfectly captures the texture of the times and brings a colorful cast of characters vividly to life, none more so than Lydia, a heroine as winning and appealing as Eliza, the beloved spelling champion of Bee Season. With dazzling dexterity, Goldberg has fashioned a novel that beautifully combines the intimate and the epic. Wickett's Remedy announces her arrival as a major novelist. Dreaming of a better life, Lydia, an Irish-American shopgirl from South Boston, gets her chance when she marries medical student Henry Wickett, the scion of a Boston family, but her life is turned upside down when Henry quits medical school

Mientras Eliza Naumann se entrena para poner a prueba de forma definitiva su capacidad para deletrear en el exigente Concurso Nacional de Ortografía de Washington D.C., su familia empieza a desmoronarse de forma simultánea. Efectivamente, cuanto más difíciles son las palabras que Eliza aprende a deletrear, más parece deteriorarse la comunicación a su alrededor. Su padre Saúl, un profesor de estudios religiosos, ve algo trascendente en el mágico don de Eliza y empieza a enseñarle los secretos de la Cábala. Se empieza a obsesionar con sus victorias, viendo a través de ella el camino que conduce hacia Dios. Su madre Miriam ve en esa dedicación conjunta de Eliza y Saúl un doloroso recordatorio de la conexión que tuvo en tiempos con su marido y sus propios padres, los cuales fallecieron siendo ella una niña. Mientras tanto, Aaron, el hermano mayor de Eliza, que antes era el favorito de su padre, se revela contra esa falta de cariño, abriéndose a otras religiosas y buscando a la postre una conexión con una hermosa seguidora de los Hare Krishna. Con su familia desintegrándose delante de sus ojos, depende de Eliza, en un desesperado acto de generosidad y de amor, volver a juntar todos los fragmentos de ese mundo que se ha hecho añicos
