Sunday's on the Phone to Monday

A Novel

(1)
The Middlesteins meets The Virgin Suicides in this arresting family love story about the eccentric yet tightknit Simone family, coping with tragedy during 90s New York, struggling to reconnect with each other and heal.
Claudio and Mathilde Simone, once romantic bohemians hopelessly enamored with each other, find themselves nestled in domesticity in New York, running a struggling vinyl record store and parenting three daughters as best they can: Natasha, an overachieving prodigy; sensitive Lucy, with her debilitating heart condition; and Carly, adopted from China and quietly fixated on her true origins.
With prose that is as keen and illuminating as it is whimsical and luminous, debut novelist Christine Reilly tells the unusual love story of this family. Poignant and humane, Sunday's on the Phone to Monday is a deft exploration of the tender ties that bind families together, even as they threaten to tear them apart.
Rezension
" Sunday's on the Phone to Monday reveals how trouble, when visited upon a loving family, can be transformed-if imperfectly-by curiosity, empathy, and imagination. We're in a poet's hands; every sentence here crackles with electric vitality. This is a unique and big-hearted novel ." Pamela Erens, author of The Virgins

From the beginning it is clear that they will spend the rest of their days together and have a family. Two lovely daughters are born quickly and a third, adopted one, completes the family. Life could be perfect, but Claudio has a sister who has always struggled from her mental illnesses and Mathilde’s brother is gay and cannot have a family in the same way his sister does. When the girls get older, other problems arise and the biggest challenge for the family is set when the heart of one of the girls gets too weak to beat on. I really liked reading Christine Reilly’s novel. Her characters are interestingly drawn, their problems are real and imaginable. The dialogues show liveliness and the overall tone of the novel is a great joy to read. However, when I finished the book, I was wondering what it was about. It is especially the relationships that could captivate and convince me, but considering it all, they were like touched and abandoned soon after. Mathilde and Claudio are a very interesting couple, so are Claudio and his sister Jane or Mathilde and her brother. Also the girls amongst themselves or with their boyfriends – so many good ideas which could have filled novels on their own. Of course, the novel as it is somehow complete, but it lacked a bit of focus. Nevertheless, a story which I can really recommend, especially if you are looking for something slightly sad.
