Now she was gone for good. She needed to be buried, Henry thought. The traditional Chinese way with food offerings, longevity, blankets and prayer ceremonies lasting several days. Despite Marty’s fit about cremating her, he was so modern. He’d been seeing a counselor and dealing with his mother’s death through an online support group, whatever that was. Going online sounded like talking to no one, which Henry had some firsthand experience in. In real life it was lonely, almost as lonely as the cemetery, where he’d buried Ethel. She now had a gorgeous view of Lake Washington and was interred with Seattle’s other Chinese notables like Bruce Lee and his own son Brandon.
“Saturday” is a very clever book. This is what the reviewer wrote in the newspaper about Ian McEwan’s novel, which was published a couple of years ago in England. You can call this a well-chosen description, not only is the book extremely intelligent, it also shows the reader what is actually going on inside our brain. The main-character in the novel is a doctor. His wife is a lawyer. The daughter, Daisy, writes poems and the son Theo, is about to develop into an extremely talented musician. The book describes a sympathic English middle class family about the turn of the millennium.
