I've just finished this book and I can't say that I've entirely formed my opinion It is well worth reading particularly for Ramona Novels often fall frustratingly flat in their attempts to depict female characters of any depth but Bauer succeeds in creating someone both intriguing and repulsive whose motivations and perspective we might not share but is perhaps all the a character worth knowing

DexterityIt was first published in 1989 Now back in print this darkly poetic novel is imbued with the same tough and tender understand. Ed and Ramona fell in love in high school and married very young Starting a family in the depressed upstate town of Myles New York in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains Ramona soon discovers married family life is not all she dreamed of Ed is a far from perfect husband hitting the drink a bit too much argumentative and sometimes even violent while Ramona begins to resent Ed for keeping her tied to this banal small town lifeRamona had made a previous attempt to flee this life resulting in a car accident and the loss of her hand One day it all gets too much for Ramona again and in a fit of almost blind madness she leaves her year old son in the middle of a field and flees the town and her rigid little life walking south in flip flopsIt is almost like she is on the run but though she is constantly worried that she is going to be found she also finds some kind of thrill in her new life having an affair and eventually becoming and disengaged with realityThe guilt of leaving her son however never leaves her haunting her day and nightMeanwhile Ed is going through his own breakdown also losing his grip on reality He ends up living out the back of his property in a lean to made of old car doors while the town gossips about him Eventually he begins to feel that Ramona is not going to return so he heads out in search of her During this time Ramona who never really got than about 50 miles away decides to return Unfortunately in a cruel twist of fate Ed who has drunk himself into a stupor and crashed his car falls asleep in a snow driftBauer has a very adept way of getting into the heads and charting the mental decline of the characters and for a debut novel this is very strong stuff However the story itself I felt did not hold the same strength The poetic prose hinted at a masterpiece but the actual story lagged a bit The days of Ed wallowing in self pity while the town tittle tattle about him really were a bit of slog to get through and Ramona’s weird little fantasy about the artist over the road was just a bit too obscure You’ll probably get something out of this as I did if you really appreciate a wordsmith but Bauer’s skill in this department just didn’t uite work enough of its magic on the pace of the plot for me
