I came across A Stone Boat by accident not realizing that Andrew Solomon had ever written a novel Solomon is a tremendously gifted writer who uses language in creative and uniue ways It is what propelled me through Far From The Tree which was a book of great breadth and sensitivity and what kept me going with A Stone Boat By the first 30 or 40 pages I was thrilled thinking I had found a book that was going to tell a moving story about a motherson relationship and about death and dying By 100 pages my excitement was waning and by the end I found I just had to push through the pages of philosophizing The problem I realized is that the characters are never fleshed out enough for me to feel compassion for them Harry the narrator is a young concert pianist who doesn t just adore his mother but swims in her love to the point where he can t love anyone else His homosexuality is both a part of the story with his mother but also removed from her The father and brother are both only sketches despite the mother s love for them so that the reader is given a skewed perception of Harry and his mother s relationship Because of this Harry comes across as perhaps pampered than he is and somewhat pouty If A Stone Boat had been written in the third person I perhaps wouldn t have minded being annoyed with Harry and the mother But it is Harry s voice speaking which makes it incumbent upon Solomon to make that voice one the reader is eager to hear About three uarters of the way into the book as Harry pursues a sexual liaison with a man named Nick and recites a long monologue about how difficult pleasures are better than easy pleasure in lofty and lengthy fashion all I could think was Who talks like this I didn t want to hear any By the time the mother dies the reader has seen growth in her but none in Harry He seems little changed although perhaps he understands himself better But he is still unable to manage a relationship with a lover or it seems with his father and brother A Stone Boat was originally written in 1994 and since then Solomon has been best known for non fiction Based upon Solomon s beautiful writing style and his willingness to take on difficult subjects I would love to see him try fiction again as an older and experienced writer Touch Me In The Dark The Mckenna Legacy Harleuin Intrigue #390 perceptive story of family identity and the changes wrought by grief and loss Harry an internationally celebrated concert An Irritation to a Murder pianist arrives in Paris to confront his glamorous mother about his homosexuality Instead.
