Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Fourteen-year-old Cam's discovery of her mother's dead body launches a dark and powerful, if at times unsubtle first novel. Cam's absentee father sends her to live with a distant step-cousin, Scofield, and his wife Marge. A complex interplay of points of view--Cam's first-person reminiscences and the third-person narratives of Scofield, Marge, and others--chronicles her childhood, beset by tragedy and abuse. Repeatedly raped at age four by Scofield himself, Cam was initiated into "body sharing" as the nine-year-old victim of a coterie of her teachers; at thirteen she had an abortion. Now, while Cam seeks solace in sex with an older girl named Dana, Scofield again forces her into a physical relationship that finally drives her to the end of her tolerance and to despair. The author explores Cam's intense, precocious sexuality with a fearless honesty that gives her character a disturbing vividness. Yet the fiercely sensual imagery sometimes comes across as ponderous overwriting or awkward abstraction, as when she describes a woman's eyeshadow as "a jar on a pasture hill, a curtain sewn across a valley." In addition, the intrusion of an absurdly gothic element--Scofield is plagued by a phantom dog--mars the admirable verisimilitude achieved in Cam's personality. For the most part, though, Rose's ambitious foray into difficult territory makes for a highly affecting debut. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Rose's debut novel, Body Sharers (Rutgers University Press, 1993), took third in the 1991 Washington Prize for Fiction, and an excerpt from Body Sharers was a finalist for the 1990 AWP Intro AwardsBody Sharers was a top-five finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Foundation Award for Best First Novel. 
"Body Sharers is an extraordinary first novel of sexual, psychic, spiritual, and artistic obsession, entrapment, and quest. Rose writes like a young Joyce Carol Oates-with malice toward none and charity to all of her damaged, cruel, intensely alive characters."-Alicia Ostriker, award-winning poet and author of Feminist Revision and the Bible

Rezension: From Publisher's Weekly:Fourteen-year-old Cam's discovery of her mother's dead body launches a dark and powerful, if at times unsubtle first novel. Cam's absentee father sends her to live with a distant step-cousin, Scofield, and his wife Marge. A complex interplay of points of view-Cam's first-person reminiscences and the third-person narratives of Scofield, Marge, and others-chronicles her childhood, beset by tragedy and abuse. Repeatedly raped at age four by Scofield himself, Cam was initiated into "body sharing" as the nine-year-old victim of a coterie of her teachers; at thirteen she had an abortion. Now, while Cam seeks solace in sex with an older girl named Dana, Scofield again forces her into a physical relationship that finally drives her to the end of her tolerance and to despair. The author explores Cam's intense, precocious sexuality with a fearless honesty that gives her character a disturbing vividness. Yet the fiercely sensual imagery sometimes comes across as ponderous overwriting or awkward abstraction, as when she describes a woman's eyeshadow as "a jar on a pasture hill, a curtain sewn across a valley." In addition, the intrusion of an absurdly gothic element-Scofield is plagued by a phantom dog-mars the admirable verisimilitude achieved in Cam's personality.

From Library Journal:In her first novel, Rose brings out the disturbing transgressions of child molestation and sexual wantonness. She leads us into the world of Camille, a 14-year-old who has been the victim of sexual abuse and child pornography since she was nine years old. After her mother's death, Camille lives with her uncle and aunt on their police dog farm. We are led into the dissociative fantasies, conflicts, and personal losses of Camille, as well as the visions of terror and guilt of her accursed Uncle Scofield and the emotional and sexual entanglements of his wife, Marge. Though the subject of this highly charged narrative is disconcerting, Rose offers a glimmer of hope in the conclusion. Her vivid details, consistent descriptions, and harrowing insights into character makes this a powerful debut worth our attention. Highly recommended for all collections.

From Kirkus Reviews:A promising but narrow first novel evokes the disturbed atmosphere of a household in which a 14-year-old girl-a survivor of repeated sexual abuse-lives with a relative who's given to obsessive thoughts of sexual violence. When asked how many children she had, Camille's mother had always answered, "One, and one's too many." The teenager is already emotionally and spiritually motherless, then, when her mother dies and she's dumped with relatives: Aunt Marge, who's interested in dog-breeding, not in mothering; and Uncle Scofield, who trains police dogs and is tormented by visions of a ghost-dog- -as well as by desire for Cam: Scofield is also the man who molested her in the bath when she was little. Worse, a flute teacher seduced Cam at age nine, invited other men to use her, photographed her for child pornography, and arranged an abortion when he eventually got her pregnant. Now, as a teenager, she has no firm sense of boundaries-sexual or metaphysical. She is haunted by longing for her mother's love-as well as by the ghost-children of her mother's many abortions-and willingly satisfies the sexual desires her presence stirs up in those around her. The sexual material here, though shocking, eventually grows tedious, but there's a generous scattering of insights: for a suspicious priest, sin is like an architect's drafting table, not "so much something to forgive as it was something to lean his elbows on while he worked." Poetic prose often generates the appropriate aura, but-just as everyone's consciousness here is limited to sexual obsession- the graphic cataloguing of "body sharing" all but obliterates character development. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
