Synopsis: Safekeeping A beautifully crafted and inviting account of one woman's life, Safekeeping offers a sublimely different kind of autobiography.

Full description

Review: ?An unforgettable portrait of a grown-up woman who has learned to rejoice in being herself. Reading it, we feel the crazy beauty of life. Anne Lamott

"Poetic.... Thomas is an observant and graceful writer." --The New York Times Book Review
"Razor-sharp pieces of radiant truth...not so much memoir as a stained glass window made up of scenes garnered from a life. This is an unforgettable portrait of a grown-up woman who has learned how to rejoice in being herself. Reading it, we feel the crazy beauty of life." --Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird and Traveling Mercies

"Elegantly framed vignettes that quickly bring us to the essence of a game, bemused woman with a vivid interest in love." --Elle
"Safekeeping is a sapphire...pointy, gleaming, in the end, blue.... You know a form is right when, in the end, you can't imagine a story told any other way. Abigail Thomas walks the edge of the form's boundaries; her stories are haunted by adjectives." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

Book Description Anchor Books, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. A beautifully crafted and inviting account of one woman s life, Safekeeping offers a sublimely different kind of autobiography. Setting aside a straightforward narrative in favor of brief passages of vivid prose, Abigail Thomas revisits the pivotal moments and the tiny incidents that have shaped her life: pregnancy at 18; single motherhood (of three!) by the age of 26; the joys and frustrations of three marriages; and the death of her second husband, who was her best friend. The stories made of these incidents are startling in their clarity and reassuring in their wisdom. This is a book in which silence speaks as eloquently as what is revealed. Openhearted and effortlessly funny, these brilliantly selected glimpses of the arc of a life are, in an age of excessive confession and recrimination, a welcome tonic.
