Alice Hoffman ´ 4 review

Rismatic Vincent who began looking for trouble on the day he could walkFrom the start Susanna sets down rules for her children No walking in the moonlight no red shoes no wearing black no cats no crows no candles no books about magic And most importantly never ever fall in love But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong they It was clear from the start that they were not like other children therefore Susanna felt she had no choice but to set down rules No walking in the moonlight no Ouija boards no candles no red shoes no wearing black no going shoeless no amulets no night blooming flowers no reading novels about magic no cats no crows and no venturing below Fourteenth Street Yet no matter how Susanna tried to enforce these rules the children continued to thwart her Do you ever read a wonderful book and wonder what happens next How about wondering what might have happened before the action of a book If you read Alice Hoffman s 1995 novel Practical Magic or saw the wonderful 1998 film adaptation with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman I bet you d like to spend a bit time with the Owens family Hoffman wanted to go there some as well But sometimes life intervenes The set of the film was built in two locations The exterior of the house was constructed on a small island off Washington State so gorgeous and realistic that Barbra Streisand is said to have wanted to buy it while the interior was built in a hanger at a Hollywood studio I went to visit in California invited by star and producer Sandra Bullock and when I walked into the house I had first created in my novel I was stunned There I was in the Owens kitchen a place I had only imagined now brought to life I realized then the person on the film whose work was most like mine was the set designer We both created the world for the characters to step intoI might have continued on with the Owens family then for certainly there was to their story a mysterious past and a relative who had begun a curse that still affected the family but on my return from Hollywood I was diagnosed with breast cancer During my treatment ideas of returning to the Owens family of Practical Magic evaporated During my treatment and after my illness I moved on to other books Still I felt haunted by the world I had created as if the family had been trapped in time waiting to come alive from the Foyle s articleOnly twenty two years after the original Hoffman has finally brought us back into the magical world of the Owens family not Bullock and Kidman s characters but a tracing back of their elderly aunts born in the 1950s and growing up in New York with serious exposure not only to the Massachusetts house where they will end up but in the allure that was Manhattan in the 1960s Hoffman had a pretty good time setting her tale mostly in that very lively decade It is my favourite time period a time of enormous change when the attitudes of young people women gays and lesbians and of people of colour radically changed and when an unjust and unpopular war was affected by protests in the streets A cultural revolution took place one in which young people were able to change attitudes during a time when America was horribly divided as it is now Artistically the sixties was a thrilling magical timeThe sisters and theirmysterious brother Vincent live in Greenwich Village the epicenter of music art and politics in the States in the sixties from the Foyles articleThere was particular personal resonance for me a contemporary of Franny and Jet and a native of the city It was particularly fun to learn some facts about The Village that I had never known I cannot say how much the at homeness of that setting invoked warm feelings maybe a bit but whatever the cause those feeling were sustained by plenty Alice Hoffman image from The Palm Beach Daily NewsFrances Franny is the oldest sulky pale skin red hair six feet tall and has a particular ability to communicate with birds Bridget aka Jet has hair appropriate to her name She is beautiful but shy and both sensitive and kind Finally there is Vincent We meet him at age 14 already a musician already deadly attractive We follow the three as they discover and develop their latent witchy talents Most significant is a summer long visit to a Massachusetts aunt who gives them the direction and free reign they need to grow into their talents It is not just their talent at conjuring that we track but their romantic entanglements as well The latter arrives with baggage however It is believed that there is a family curse on the Owens line ruination for any man that fell in love with them Woe to any they love for those unlucky souls are surely doomed Well that s what they believe anyway Is it true Maybe There are certainly enough interested others who meet dark ends that there is a real world basis for taking the curse seriously One might conjure a bit of Edward Gorey and dash off sets of couplets for the many who find a foul fate once enchanted by the siblings OwenJ is for Jack struck who was struck down by lightningAlong with his twin It was all rather frighteningOne caught a train or did it catch himAnother dove in for a deep one way swimKinda makes it tough though for three young people to develop as loving human beings if they have to worry that anyone who gets too close might run terminally afoul of ancient craft So there is a constant tension between loving and fearing the conseuences of that love Like the rest of us I guess but with just a teensy bit oomph I ve always been interested in witchcraft and I ve done research my whole life I did a bit for The Rules of Magic because I was writing specifically about a particular judge Judge Hathorne at the witchcraft trials in Salem I read whatever I could find about him and I found him a really interesting character As to magic for me it s always a pleasure to study magic and to find out and Everything in the book about magic lore was something that I researched For instance the use of medicinal plants and herbs Still while the research is interesting it s not what s important Really the most important thing is writing the novel and creating the characters That s the big difference between an historical novel and a history What I m mostly interested in is the novel part of it All the research that I do is in service to that from the writermag interviewOne of the true bits of magic in the book is the strength of the relationship among the siblings particularly between Franny and Jet They face a series of challenges but their connection to each other offers strength to face what comes You might keep an eye out for wind as a recurring motif Franny gives the prisoners in the Women s House of Detention a cool breeze on a hot day for example In another circumstance It came on the wind the way wicked things must for they are most often weighted down with spite and haven t the strength to lift themselves There are others Hoffman uses scent as well to keep us grounded in earthly sensations while rapt in a tale that touches another planeAlice Hoffman is one of my favorite writers So I started off than a bit receptive to this novel despite having never read Practical Magic I did see and love the film I uite enjoy her fondness for fantasy and fairy tales She even begins this one with Once upon a time Coming of age tales are common enough but work best when one cares about the characters I am not certain Vincent as interesting a character as he is will get as warm a welcome as his sisters but he also gets a lot less screen time That said you will most definitely care for Jet and will certainly love Franny and suffer with her as she struggles to balance the needs of love with the existential demands of real or imagined sorceryYou don t need the sight to see that this is a spellbinding novel It s time to switch on your midnight light and let everyone in the neighborhood know The magic is back and it is totally bewitching Once again Alice Hoffman will put you under her spellPublished October 10
