CHARACTERS ☆ PRIMACLEANSEPLUSUK.CO.UK ´ James McBride READ & DOWNLOAD Ù The Color of Water A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother Commanded respect As a young man McBride saw his mother as a source of embarrassment worry and confusion and reached thirty before he began to discover the truth about her early life and long buried pain In The Color of Water McBride retraces his mother's footsteps and through her searing and spirited voice recreates her remarkable story The daughter of a failed itinerant Orthodox rabbi she was born Rachel Shilsky actually Ruchel Dwara Zylska in Poland on April 1 1921 Fleeing pogroms her family emigrated to America and ultimately settled in Suffolk Virginia a small town where anti Semitism and racial tensions ran high With candor and immediacy Ruth describes her parents' loveless marriage; her fragile handicapped mother; her cruel sexually abusive father; and the rest of the family and life she abandoned At seventeen after fleeing Virginia and settling in New York City Ruth married a black ministe. If Cheaper By the Dozen by Frank Gilbraith Jr and The Color Purple by Alice Walker ever somehow met and had an I like you as a friend not a lover child The Color of Water would be it race and a ridiculous amount of kids The concept is compelling and I would recommend this book to anyone who was disappointed that Run Ann Patchett s most recent book didn t deal directly with race issues in a mixed race family Nominally this book is a tribute to James McBride s mother who was an unarguably interesting person McBride s personal issues with his mother clouded her story however and his inability to emotionally separate from her enough to treat her as a character left me feeling that he bit off than he could chew when he decided to write this tribute McBride reflects that his mother was not comfortable having her story told and preferred not to discuss her past with him which leads me to ask whether tribute is an appropriate word to put in the title of this book It would have been a stronger narrative if McBride had openly written The Color of Water as his own story not his mother sToward the end of the book McBride admits that he experienced emotion hearing his mother s story than his mother did telling it This comes through awkwardly within the narrative For example he names his mother Mommy and that continues as the name of her character throughout the entire story Though he reminds his reader four or five times that Mommy s name changed from Ruchel Dwarja Zylska in Poland to Rachel Deborah Shilsky in America to Ruth McBride Jordan after her marriages and renouncing of the Jewish faith and though his sisters seem call her Ruth or Ruthie he continues to refer to her as Mommy His character rebels grows up becomes a successful journalist but still his mother s character is MommyAt first when I read The Color Purple Mr s name was awkward to me I didn t know how I was supposed to say it I honestly wondered a little bit if Walker couldn t come up with a name for him so she just left it out By the end of the novel the genius of both robbing Mr of the right to a name and calling him something that effectively gives him the potential to be Everyman deepens the novel Not so with Mommy McBride writes a specific woman not a stock character Mommy waddles likes her privacy and doesn t like to do housework While with Mr I eventually hope that my last name never fills that blank with Mommy I know it doesn t She s not my Mommy so do I have to call her that Does McBride still think of her as he did when he was a small childMcBride divides this book a la The Grapes of Wrath with alternating chapters that are vignettes from Mommy s point of view and chapters that are a continuing story from his point of view His mother s vignettes are at times very lovely but at some point his chapters started repeating hers as though the stories had not been told already This was not in an artistic Rashamon way but rather seemed like bad editing or worse some kind of psychological disassociation with his mother s story that needed to be dealt with before writing the book At first Mommy s story is supplemental to his memories of her from when he is a child Later however one chapter tells a story from her point of view and then the next from James McBride s point of view repeats the same story by recalling the circumstances of her telling that story to him That s not necessaryAlso who is his sister Jack I officially do not understand what her relation to the family is if she is not literally his sister I will be sad if I find out he explained that and I missed it when I didn t miss the many times he described his mother s name change and who her childhood best friend wasUnfortunately while The Color of Water has the potential to be a truly great American story it does not live up to that potential McBride s ambivalence as to whether to tell his story or his mother s story sabotaged it and left me feeling uncomfortable like neither he nor his mother were well represented I read this for a book club and many of the people in the club were not distracted by the way McBride told the story To them the fascinating life his mother led and his psychological journey in learning about her were not conflicting storylines that distracted from each other both stories were part of united by the larger journey of him learning to forgive his mother I think they could stay with the story because they were rooting for the motherson relationship I on the other hand am interested in being entertained than other people s psyco health It s shallow but true Basically McBride failed me as an entertainer The Last Pick The Boston Marathon Race Director's Road to Success footsteps and through her searing and spirited voice recreates her
