SUMMARY Mr Chartwell

Mr Chartwell

La perdita e non ha paura di raccontarne gli aspetti più dolorosi uello che ci restituisce è un romanzo umano e profondo che mette a nudo tutte le ambiguità del rapporto tra la depressione e le sue vittime i silenzi la vergogna ma è anche un potente annuncio di speranza l’invito a resistere eroicamente a vedere nel male oscuro del nostro tempo una battaglia che si comincia a vincere nel momento stesso in cui si accetta di combatterl. I listened to the audiobook edition of Mr Chartwell by Rebecca Hunt As is my habit I added it to my library list of books that are available in the audio format way before I got the audiobook from the library I only wish I could remember how this book came to my attention In my opinion the most important component of an audiobook is the reader performer narrator Mr Chartwell was read by Susan Duerden and she had the perfect clipped British accent She made each character an individual with her voice and articulation I always seem to prefer books read by British performers It adds an appreciated charm aspect I came to the book knowing that it was somehow about Prime Minister Winston Churchill I soon learned that Chartwell was the name of Sir Winston Churchill s home along with his wife Clemintine who was Winston s emotional rock and his most trusted confidante What I did not know was that Churchill suffered from depression The book opens in July 1964 where Winston Churchill wakes at dawn in his bed chamber at the Chartwell House There s a dark mute presence in the room that focuses on him with rapt attention Soon after in London Esther Hammerhans a librarian at the House of Commons widowed for two years decides to rent her late husband s study When she goes to answer the door to her new lodger through the glass she sees a vast silhouette the size of a mattress His name is Mr Chartwell and though Esther is astounded to see what seems to be a huge dog standing there waiting for her patronage as any patron would it all becomes uickly if not completely plausible to Esther and to the reader Though many reviewers begin with the all too real metaphor of Mr Chartwell to be known as Black Pat as a physical representation of the blackness of living with depression this reader initially had no idea I think my cluelessness worked to my advantage It allowed me to be put smack into the story from the very beginning and pretty much stay there to the end Mr Chartwell the dog was written from the first with such wit and impudence charm and repulsion appeal and disgust intelligence and fatuousness that I accepted him nay I relished in him As the book proceeds Sir Winston Churchill Esther Hammerhans and Mr Chartwell s stories intertwine coming together in a very satisfying way At some point even this slightly dense reader began to understand the metaphor working in Mr Chartwell and that Churchill s and that he had lived with the black dog depression for many if not most of his years As for Esther Hammerhans Mr Chartwell is visible to her as well because the loss of her husband has left her depressed and empty The fact that Winston Churchill was hounded no pun intended by the black dog of depression became the conceit for Rebecca Hunt s novel and from it she wove a tale that for me was than entertaining It was one of the most gratifying and captivating books that I have read in a very long time And while you never forget that depression is serious she made it possible to laugh as you dry away the tears The French Cafe format way before I got the audiobook Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry from the library I only wish I could remember
