My third Ethel Wilson and the best so far. A perfect ten, in my view, with prose so beautiful I re-read pages at a time. A lovely young woman, Hetty Dorval, selfish, opportunistic, psychopathic, moves. This is another book re-published in the marvellous Persephone series (another of Wilson's books is also planned for publication in 2007) Читать весь отзыв.

The Bryants were Methodist missionaries, and were living in Port Elizabeth, South Africa at the time. Lila was unwell at the time of childbirth, and her health continued to deteriorate.

Hetty Dorval seems to have behaved unconventionally, indeed immorally ('a very ugly story has followed her from Shanghai to Vancouver') . But is Frankie's adult perception of Hetty to be preferred to that of her childish innocence when she first met her? There are thus many ways to read this book. It's a strange little treat.

Ethel Wilson's first work is well worth reading if only for her exquisitely crafted prose; she is clearly one of the finest and most influential Canadian writers of the twentieth century. Her clear influence on Alice Munro is incredibly marked, and indeed HETTY DORVAL (like much of Wilson's other work) would fit beautifully right into a current issue of the NEW YORKER. In this coming-of-age novella, the heroine meets as a girl the beautiful and wealthy Hetty Dorval, who lives in her small British Columbian town under a cloud of gossip and suspicion. As the years pass, her encounters with Hetty multiply in different cities and continents, and she begins to realize that Hetty is much more than she claims to be. This is clearly a first work, and some of the scenes in the text (particularly near the end, with the revelation scene and the unlikely scene of Hetty spending the night in the heroine's bed) seem poorly thought through. But the famous closing sentences of the work show Wilson's larger ideational framework brilliantly, posing the question as to what finally really matters in the end when mere human corruption and fallibility is compared to genuine evil. The singular atmosphere of the tale--its lovely evocation of North American wilderness viewed through a wealthy class-conscious sensibility--also makes it a splendid work. This is a fine first work by a major writer, and deserves to be read in other countries besides its own.

This is one of the most bewildering stories I've ever read. There is virtually no plot; the build-up of suspense over the "treacherous" Mrs. Dorval amounts to nothing more than rumour and gossip. Absolutely nothing happens! The book ends so abruptly that I thought someone had torn out the final chapters.
