KATHRYN CHETKOVICH ENVY PDF

Print In the traditional recitation of the seven capital sins, envy is preceded by lust and anger. It seems likely to attract even more attention now that it is available in the United States, where the identity of the unnamed object of her jealousy is more easily discerned. In 19 pages of coolly elegant but rawly confessional prose, Chetkovich charts the inner arc of her relationship with an unnamed novelist, beginning at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire, where both had gone to work through difficult literary projects, and ending with her final resentment of his unexpected celebrity. He was working on his third book when I met him, but he had no particular interest in talking shop.

He was working on his third book when I met him, but he had no particular interest in talking shop. He read the paper and watched sports on television. He was handsome in a shy, arrogant way, dressed safely but deliberately in his white shirts and black jeans.

My own reading told me this, but I had independent verification as well -- because as sections were finished they flew almost immediately into print, and just as immediately, the phone would begin to ring with congratulatory messages, comparisons to dead writers and to living writers whose reputations were so established they might as well be dead. I was immensely relieved to think that he, too, could produce bad work and grateful that he was willing to show it to me.

Funny, true, interesting. I had no children, the husband I had thought I would be with forever was gone, the father I had always assumed would one day really want to know me was dead, and I had no career to speak of.

But writing full-blooded women of complexity and fallibility has never been a problem for the year-old author, whose deliberate manner, salt-and-pepper hair, and classic tortoiseshell glasses belie a certain essential boyishness. Set predominantly in the latter half of the s, Freedom taps the anxieties and anger of the Bush years—the sense of American overreach and moral compromise, a misguided war, environmental calamity: an empire in decline.
