The Group Read & Download  5 review The Group Ntangled in each other's affairs but all vow not to become like their mothers and fathers It is only when one of them dies that they all come back together again to mourn the loss of a friend a confidante and most importantly a member of the grou. There s this story Laura Jacobs recounts in her definitive essay about this book I used to keep seventy five dollars of mad money in a book We had The Group on the shelf in our guest room and I thought I ll remember where it is if I put it in there Every guest we had would come down the next morning and say Did you know you had money in that book She should have stashed it in Herzog right No one would ever have found it This book on the other hand which gets almost immediately to a long scene of orgasmic deflowerizationthis is a poor choice for a hiding placeWritten in 1963 and set in the 30s it follows eight women and assorted hangers on after their graduation from college and through about seven years of their lives McCarthy s penchant for thinly disguising her Vassar classmates made her not the most popular kid at reunion Here s a daisy chain which was when the most bright eyed Vassar women carried shitloads of flowers around and has probably been awkward to modernizeThe plot is not compelling It or less falls into the connected short story genre with linking characters and themes and sometimes you get the sense that it s not even that it s of a series of excuses for instructional manuals Here is how to use a pessary That s pretty much a diaphragm Here are some competing philosophies re child rearing They re using cry it out Characters pass the story off to each other like relay batons the stories overlap like a series of cresting wavesBut for all that it isn t boring Although the child free might nod off a bit during the two chapters about baby strategy Partly that s because much of it is about sex But it s also extremely funny and not just because of the recipes straight out of the 70s Dinner Party Twitter account A marvelous jellied salad called Green Goddess made with lime gelatin shrimps mayonnaise and alligator pear People are described as Given to large tight brassieres and copious menstruation and The sort of girl that people s brothers took out Dottie mishears pessary as peccary and wonders what she s supposed to do with a pig There s even a Jeevesian butlerI mean it s dead serious too McCarthy means to fight make no mistake She tackles miscarriage and rape and death One of the ongoing threads is men making decisions for women with increasingly dire conseuences Birth control breastfeeding institutionalization the effect of men on women gets worse and worse as we go It s not an accident that the final story is about a gay womanOn publication as Elizabeth Day puts it for The Guardian The Group rapidly became a book that everyone read without wanting to admit it Birth control right Ew The good news it s been 70 years and now you can admit it all you want This book is great
