He said I should count the new baby he had with his new wife, Marjorie, as part of my family too, plus Richard, Marjorie's son, who was six months younger than me though he was good at all the sports I messed up in. But our family was my mother, Adele, and me, period. I would have counted the hamster, Joe, before including that baby, Chloe. Saturday nights when my father picked me up to take us all out to dinner at Friendly's, he was always wanting me to sit next to her in the backseat. Then he'd pull a pack of baseball cards out of his pocket and lay them on the table in the booth, to split between Richard and me.
Henry shares his life in New Hampshire with his depressed, and divorced mother, Adele. Adele's agoraphobia means that the family survives on unedifying tinned foods and frozen meals. However, on the Thursday before the Labor Day weekend, Henry persuades his mother to go on a shopping trip.
It is there that they meet an unkempt man who is bleeding from his forehead and agree to his request for a ride in their car. This mysterious man, Frank, admits that he is a convicted murderer who has escaped prison.
Despite his past, Frank makes the claim that the mother and son have "never been in better hands". Indeed, Frank teaches Henry how to throw a baseball, change a flat tire and to bake.
Meanwhile, Adele and Frank, long love-starved, become infatuated with each other, and Adele emerges from her depression. The Washington Post noted that "It is a testament to Maynard's skill that she makes this ominous setup into a convincing and poignant coming-of-age tale.
Simply a novel you cannot miss. In late , it was announced that director Jason Reitman was in the process of adapting a script for Joyce Maynard's novel entitled Labor Day.
Principal photography for the film began on June 13, in Massachusetts.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I lived the story of being a single mother — not the woman in the book, but in a small New Hampshire town. I raised my three sons there, and I watched them watch me.
They were just coming into their adolescence, and I have feelings of my own, but I had to take care of everyone else when no one was taking care of me. Maynard: When the novel was first published, my career was in the toilet. Which character, in your opinion, goes through the most transition in your interpretation of the story?
Maynard: Take your pick. These are three damaged people who heal each other, and I like to imagine that this goodness exists and is still possible, and I also believe in redemption. They had to wait a long time for it, but they all got it. As an author of several types of fiction and non-fiction, do you think your definition of love is involved in the themes of all of them?
When we see the Josh Brolin character at the end of the film, as much as he yearns for the woman, he does not want to disturb her life. It is experiencing that selflessness, which I believe we experience more with our children than a partner. When did you know you would pursue a life in letters, at an age when most kids are dealing with identity? I grew up in a boot camp of writing. I understood who my real family was.
It was unusual for my mother and me to go out the way we did that day.
My mother didn't go places, generally. But I needed pants for school. OK, she said. Pricemart, then.
Like my growing a half inch that summer was something I'd done just to give her a hard time. Not that she wasn't having one already. The car had turned over the first time she turned the key in the ignition, which was surprising, considering a month might have gone by since the last time we'd gone anywhere in it. She drove slowly, as usual, as if dense fog covered the road, or ice, but it was summerthe last days before school started, the Thursday before Labor Day weekendand the sun was shining.
It had been a long summer. Back when school first got out, I had hoped maybe we'd go to the ocean over the long expanse of vacation aheadjust for the daybut my mother said the traffic was terrible on the highway and I'd probably get sunburned, since I had his coloring, meaning my father.
All that June after school let out, and all that July, and now just having ended August, I kept wishing something different would happen, but it never did. Not just my father coming to take me to Friendly's and now and then bowling with Richard and Marjorie, and the baby, or the trip he took us on to the White Mountains to a basket-making factory, and a place Marjorie wanted to stop, where they made candles that smelled like cranberries or lemon or gingerbread.
Other than that, I'd watched a lot of television that summer.
