Pickpick

#stepsibs #spinster Pappy is a singer , Mamma is a dancer. Both had kids from earlier relationships. Maria,Niall ,& the youngest they had together,Celia.
Theater is an itinerant life, the stepsibs bond is strong & it gives them a different perspective on life than most families.I fell in love w/ this book , when they set out to a country house to meet the family Maria would marry into,well it‘s one of the funniest things I‘ve ever read ! Celia 🔽

Leftcoastzen Becomes the one who sacrificed much to take care of Pappy in his dotage, sacrificing her ambitions.This book is dark at times , hilarious, & very much like the best dysfunctional family stories that show up in many NYRB titles.LOL at the country house ! Long suffering people in their orbit do have a point , parasites! 😄👏 5mo
EvieBee #spinster is my jam! I love and appreciate them as I was one for many years. I have this somewhere on my shelves but I think it‘s time I bumped it up. 5mo
Leftcoastzen @EvieBee I really liked it ,I felt immersed in it in the best way . That doesn‘t happen very often. 5mo

Instead of a #spinster #Quotsy I‘m sharing an article. I wish I could find the tweets about spinsters and thornbacks - I changed my name to reflect that discussion. I think some might appreciate this article, though. https://www.indy100.com/article/victorian-women-spinster-thornack-dr-bib-nichols...

"Some are born old maids, some achieve old maidenhood, and some have old maidenhood thrust upon them," parodied Miss Lavendar whimsically.

"I always like to do things as well as possible," said Miss Lavendar meditatively, "and since an old maid I had to be I was determined to be a very nice one. People say I'm odd; but it's just because I follow my own way of being an old maid and refuse to copy the traditional pattern.” #spinster #QuotsyJune19

I REALLY need to read this book now especially since this book describes my relationship status (or lack thereof) so perfectly
